On Friday, September 9th, Fresh Empire and IllWave joined forces to kick off #RoadToIllWave, a concert party featuring Lil Yachty, DJ Lil Man, Thirsty4Pop, and Mir Fontane. The intimate 400 person concert party was put together to provide a tobacco/smoke-free concert experience for kids 21 and under. Fresh Empire “salutes those who represent Hip Hop, stay on their grind, and live tobacco-free.” A Lil Yachty show isn’t complete without celebrity friend appearances. Special guests that stopped through included Mike Zombie (OVO), Coach K (QC/Migos/Yachty), Siaani Love (daughter of Charli Baltimore), Maaly Raw, Erin Simon (Revolt TV), Savannah Britt, and DJ Lil Man.
The show also served as the preamble to the IllWave concert series, a new seasonal interactive music experience founded by Philly influencers Jae Brown and Shariff Small. The inaugural show kicks off September 28th at The Foundry and will feature performances from Famous Dex, Maaly Raw & Friends, and Nessly. Tickets are available for purchase here.
