MULTI-YEAR DEAL CONTINUES WITH AVEX ENTERTAINMENT AS DEMAND GROWS
WQHT HOT 97 FM, #1 for Hip Hop, announced it is bringing HOT 97’s Summer Jam, the biggest hip hop festival, back to Tokyo on November 11, 2017 with Japan-based Avex Entertainment, Asia’s premier live entertainment and production company.
HOT 97 SUMMER JAM TOKYO sold out last year immediately and tickets were difficult to find, sending a wave of shock throughout the music industry and hip hop fans in Japan. “We’re thrilled to bring HOT 97 and Summer Jam back to Tokyo as we take the next step in growing these venerable brands for the passionate and growing global hip hop audience. Our collaboration with our partners last year laid the foundation for an even larger event in November and further expansion in the coming years,” said Patrick Walsh, President, Emmis Communications.
