Jeezy, K. Michelle, & Lloyd

May 26, 8 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre

Since his mainstream debut in 2004, Jeezy has played an integral role in expanding trap music outside of Atlanta. Alongside T.I. and rival Gucci Mane, the Atlanta musician brought the music and culture of The Dirty South to the world. Jeezy has worked with Kanye West, Rihanna, Usher, and Akon as he dominated the Billboard charts in the late 2000s. Tonight, he will be joined by R&B heartthrob Lloyd, a chart-topper in his own right and ambassador of the R&B/Hip-Hop sound. As the only woman on the lineup, K. Michelle brings her sultry vocals to the male-dominated stage. Michelle has achieved success in both the music industry and reality television. Buy tickets.

So What?! Music Festival

May 27-29 | Choctaw Stadium

Oftentimes, music festivals in Dallas do not include artists from the city’s own vibrant music scene. Thankfully, Mike Ziemer, co-founder of So What?! Music Festival, thinks different. This year’s festival includes DJ Kimblee, DJ Save Aves, DJ Saucy D, Yak The Mack, 10k. Caash and other local musicians and DJs. The Dallas-based artists will perform on the same lineup as Rae Sremmurd, 2 Chainz, Big K.R.I.T., Juicy J, Waka Flocka Flame, and more. For the non hip-hop heads, the festival has a metal/rock stage and pop punk/alt stage. Purchase tickets.

All Bad Bunny Everything

May 29, 9 p.m. | Trees

DJ Pablo launches a statewide tour with a nighttime performance in Dallas at Trees. The party invites fans in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio to celebrate the record breaking Bad Bunny. The debut event will have giveaways for the most excited fans, Bad Bunny-themed photo opportunities to capture the night, and special guests in every tour stop. Get tickets.

Carne Asada Fest

May 29, 2 p.m. | Gilley’s Southside Ballroom

Picture this. You’re eating a loaded plate of fajita nachos, topped with grilled meat, spicy pico de gallo, creamy guacamole and dollops of sour cream while Slim Thug performs in front of you. If this sounds like the perfect Texas dream to you, buy tickets to Carne Asada Fest at Gilley’s. The festival brings a host of Latinx food vendors across Dallas and Texan hip-hop legends like Paul Wall and Big Tuck under one roof. Over 25 food vendors will be on site, including Mister Flautas, Val’s Seafood Kitchen and Aguachiles El Jr. Grab a michelada and soak up the holiday weekend.
