There’s good news and bad news when it comes to the 2024 Lovers & Friends Fest.

The good news is that the festival, now in its third year, is returning to Las Vegas on Saturday, May 4th with another massive lineup of R&B, hip-hop and pop artists on tap. The bad news is that tickets are already sold out in case you didn’t get a chance to grab yours. However, there’s a glimmer of hope and more potential good news because Lovers & Friends Fest has hinted on social media that they may be adding a second day to the popular festival. In that event, there will be even more opportunities for people to witness performances by the over 80 artists who have been booked to perform.

Usher may have completed his Las Vegas residency in December, but he isn’t kissing Sin City goodbye just yet. After he sets it off at the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show in February, he’ll do the same as one of the 2024 Lovers & Friends Fest headliners. Mr. Raymond will be performing his iconic album Confessions in celebration of the project’s 20th anniversary.

Before she embarks on her Together Again Summer 2024 Tour, Janet Jackson will be another headliner at this year’s Lovers & Friends. Attendees may just get a sneak preview of her updated show that she’ll be performing this summer.

Get ready for TLC, Jodeci, Majid Jordan, SWV, Xscape, Pretty Ricky, Dru Hill, Next, Nina Sky, Total, Blaque, 702 and 112 to set it off.
