The headliners for the historic, inaugural God’s House of Hip Hop 20/20 Summer Fest will be revealed at the God’s House of Hip Hop 20/20 Summer Festival Headliners Announcement Press Conference & Brunch at the Banc of California Stadium (BOC) Thurs., Jan. 23, from noon to 2 p.m. Select headliners will be in attendance to break the news about the two-day Christian Hip Hop (CHH), Latin CHH, and Gospel Hip Hop music festival happening Friday and Saturday July 17th and 18th at BOC in the heart of Los Angeles. 

Executive producers Aulsondro “Novelist” Hamilton aka Emcee N.I.C.E. and Chantal “Chanie G” Grayson, who are the owners of the Stellar Award-winning God’s House of Hip Hop radio station powered by Dash, will be on hand to unveil the festival theme and meaning of 20/20 Summer Fest. Additionally, media will have an opportunity to tour the stadium.

Hamilton says media can expect the press conference to reflect diversity representing the different energies within the culture. “There will definitely be a little something for every ear, every year,” he says, “from traditional Christian Hip Hop to Latin and Gospel Hip Hop.”

Grayson is looking forward to establishing a tradition of revealing the God's House of Hip Hop 20/20 Summer Fest theme similar to what the producers of the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) festival have done. “The yearly theme will be the guiding force uniting festival goers looking to celebrate Faith, Love and Music as they channel their inner desire to fellowship with like-minded believers,” she says. “The experience, decor and interactive nature of the festival is equally important to me as the selection of the artists performing.”

Hosts and deejays of the festival covered by Pollstar, Billboard and are being announced on the 20/20 Summer Fest’s social media pages and website. Hip Hop pioneer and legend Kurtis Blow and syndicated radio personality and actor Chris Chicago are two of the event’s hosts. The seven deejays have been announced -- starting with legendary DJ I Rock Jesus, Hot 97’s DJ Tony Tone BKS, DJ Stand Out, one of the top female deejays, Fleet Gospel DJ Ms. Eclectic, Stellar Award Winner DJ Dwight Stone, DJ Jesus Beats and DJ Will from Jacksonville.

“The reactions from our host and deejay announcements have been very positive,” Hamilton says. “In locking in Chris Chicago, he is to the culture like Big Boy is to L.A. and Ebro to NY. The surprise announcement came with the legendary Kurtis Blow, who is also the co-founder of the Hip Hop Church L.A. We have one more to go. The reaction from Kurtis Blow's announcement signified to the culture that the festival is serious business and our deejays are a combination of legends, veterans, award winners, and current spinners.”

Hamilton adds that there will also be other notable deejays from the culture at the festival who have shows on God’s House of Hip Hop Radio -- DJ Jeremaya from Trackstarz, Coalition Kingdom DJ’s - DJ Mr. CSA2K Coalition Kingdom Heat and Gospel Fleet DJ B4EY from Fresh Leftovers.

Hamilton and Grayson’s God’s House of Hip Hop (GH3 Radio) which boasts 24/7 programming of Christian Hip Hop (CHH), Latin CHH, and Gospel Hip Hop music has been nominated for the 2020 Stellar Awards Internet Station of the Year. Last year, GH3 Radio won Hip Hop Station of the Year. God’s House of Hip Hop celebrated its one year anniversary in August. The station was nominated for 11 and won 3 The Spin Awards (Best New Station of the Year, Best Radio Show Two or More Hosts, Internet Radio Personality of the Year). The ground-breaking platform was honored with a Steeple Awards nomination for Urban Inspirational Artist of the Year (Emcee N.I.C.E.) and two Kingdom Choice Awards nominations.

About Dash
Dash Radio was created by the world’s biggest DJs who became fed up with the limitations of regular FM radio (and hate internet playlists that pose as radio powered by soulless computers). Together, they formed Dash with one goal: to provide the best radio platform in the world. This means all the variety you ever wanted with zero commercials … oh ya, all live 24/7, for free.

Dash Radio works hard to provide the best radio experience in the world (seriously, there are live DJs in the studio right now 24/7) but please tell them what you want to hear, add, or change as they are constantly evolving. If you like what you hear and want to help them grow, tell your friends to join the evolution of radio. Thanks for being down with Dash on day one.
