Emmis has signed a multi-year license agreement with Avex Live Creative, Japan’s premiere entertainment production & management company, a division of Avex Group Holdings.  As part of this arrangement for Summer Jam Tokyo, Avex will also utilize Trevanna Entertainment, the production team behind Summer Jam at MetLife Stadium.

Now in its 23rd year, HOT 97 Summer Jam is a day-long, two-stage celebration of Hip Hop attracting more than 55,000 fans and the genre’s top names. Jay-Z, Wu-Tang Clan, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and more have previously performed. The annual festival is famous for their surprise, unannounced musical guests.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“HOT 97 Summer Jam Tokyo reinforces the global awareness and significance of the HOT 97 brand and the groundbreaking DJs who play such an important role in breaking and cultivating hip hop’s top past, present and without question future performers,” said Patrick Walsh, President, Emmis Communications. “HOT 97 has a passionate following in Japan and hip hop is experiencing enormous growth in popularity among Japanese millennials. We look forward to working with our partners to deliver an authentic HOT 97 Summer Jam experience to the growing legion of Japanese hip hop fans and share the experience with our American listeners as we promote the groundbreaking event to our audience in New York and all over the United States.  Our goal is to add another significant event to a country so rich in history and culture.”

“I feel honored that we are able to bring HOT 97 Summer Jam, one of the world’s most reputable Hip Hop events, to Japan,” comments Katsumi Kuroiwa, CEO of ALC.  “The demand for internal action has been increasing in Japan, and as we approach the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, we expect to gain even more attention from the world.  With the waves of globalization approaching from many directions and the demands for new experiences continuously increasing, the fact that HOT 97 Summer Jam, which represents New York’s Hip Hop culture like nothing else, is coming to Tokyo demonstrates how extremely treasured music festivals are and just how worldly Hip Hop is.  This partnership will bring a taste of New York right into the center of Japanese art & music.”

Summer Jam Tokyo will take place Friday, July 29, 2016 at Zepp Tokyo.  The line-up, which will include some of the hottest names in Hip Hop throughout the world including the biggest Hip Hop acts in Japan, will be announced at a later date.  For the most recent updates, including on-sale information, head to or follow Summer Jam: Tokyo on Facebook

Jay Z 「Tidal 」ビジネス不振の打開策?妻のビヨンセ、プリンス等大物アーティストを集め、チャリティ・コンサートを開催!Jay Z Bringing Beyoncé and Prince to Barclays Center for Charity Concert

「Tidal」を立ち上げたのはいいのですが、人気のほうは今ひとつ。アイフォンAPPのトップ・ダウンロード・チャートの700位にも入れない始末。競合のスポーティファイは23位、パンドラは7位を誇っているというのに……..。そこでビジネス・マンのジェイZは考えました。Tidal普及とブランド確立のためのマーケティング戦略として、コンサートをやろう。それも、マーティン・ルーサー・キング牧師と一緒に闘った公民運動家のハリー・ベラフォンテ主宰のノン・プロフィット団体、 と組んでチャリティ・コンサートにしたらインパクトが大きいだろう…….。というわけで、ジェイZ、ビヨンセなどのスーパー・スターが集まり、収益金を寄付するという、チャリティ・コンサートを開催することとあいなりました。プリンスやアッシャーなどの仲間も駆けつけてくれて、オール・スター勢ぞろいのビッグなコンサートになりそうです。

ライバルの「スポーティファイ」にとって脅威なのでは……..、と思いきや、創始者の一人、マーティン・ロレンツォン氏、「問題は99ありますが、ジェイZなんていうのはそのうちのひとつにも入っていませんよ。」とジェイZのヒット曲、”99 Problems (B**ch Ain’t One)” にひっかけた、余裕たっぷりコメントを発表しています。

Jay Z’s Tidal Streaming Service Has Split The Music Industry Apart ……?
When Jay Z launched Tidal at a star-studded event in March, it was with the aim of saving the music business: a vow to give artists a fair share of revenue than other streaming services such as Spotify. And he wasn’t alone, either. Kanye West, Beyonce, Usher, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Jack White and Arcade Fire all joined him for the bash in New York, each pledging to create a fairer system for musicians.

Since then, though, its found itself a target of constant criticism. Mumford And Sons, Lily Allen and Noel Gallagher have all questioned its purpose and doubted whether it will ever achieve its goals. People have claimed its a model that only favours mainstream acts – the ones least at threat by streaming in general – and that it’s little more than a vanity project.

“I would say that I have 99 problems but Jay Z is not one of them.”

The company said in an announcement that all ticket proceeds would support charities and that New World Foundation, which focuses on civil rights issues, would administer all funds, in association with, a social justice nonprofit founded by Harry Belafonte. The event’s Ticketmaster page states that donations will benefit “nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing positive community relations and effecting systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies.”

Tickets will be available, for $74-$244.
