Featured in this 10-hour-long playlist are emerging artists in the hip-hop/R&B music scene, including fresh faces with breakout hits from the past year such as Daniel Caesar, household names like Lil Uzi Vert and hip-hop trailblazers for these artists like Gucci Mane.

Songs as new as tracks from Travis Scott’s “Astroworld” project, dropped Aug. 3, are featured. Amid the mostly pop and alternative line-up of this year’s festival, these artists are set to add a splash of color to the line-up across the festival’s four days.
