Waka Flocka will participate in the Atlanta stop of the digital festival DreamHack.
The locally-based rapper will perform at DreamHack Atlanta at 10:30 p.m. July 21 (musical entertainment will kick off at 7 p.m. – the full lineup will be announced soon).
DreamHack, which is billed as the world’s largest digital festival, debuted in 2016 in Austin. This year, the fest expanded to a mini-tour that included a return to Austin in April, along with Atlanta July 21-23 at the Georgia World Congress Center and Denver Oct. 20-22.
Day passes for DreamHack are $20; weekend passes are $45. Concerts are included with the cost of the Friday day pass or the three-day weekend pass. They can be purchased here.
Attendees range in age from elementary school to seniors, though most are avid gamers in the 14-23 demographic.
Waka Flocka has been a staple on the hip-hop scene since 2009. Though he’s had frequent legal issues , the “Turn Up God” is regarded as one of Atlanta’s kingpin rappers, having worked with artists including T.I., Gucci Mane, B.o.B., Yo Gotti and Drake.
