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.
