Hot 97 Makes Final Preparations for Summer Jam

Despite the forecast for isolated thunderstorms, Summer Jam 2012 will go forward Sunday at Metlife Stadium. The most anticipated hip hop concert of the year will also be the biggest live webcast in hip hop history.

For the second year in a row, Hot 97/WQHT is partnered with Boost Mobile to stream it live to millions of fans globally. Last year’s webcast  was seen in more than 20 countries and viewed by at least half million people.

“We are rewriting internet history again this year by creating a nine-hour live stream of both the Hot 97 Summer Jam Festival Stage and Main Stage, the longest major hip hop event ever streamed online,” Lin Dai, VP of Digital Programming for HOT 97, says. ”Through the
Loud Digital Network, millions of hip hop fans will be able to tune in around the world and experience the ‘Super Bowl of hip hop’ first hand.”

And that “Super Bowl” means, performances from many of the genre’s top names including Nikki Minaj, Young JeezyJ. Cole. Big Sean, and Trey Songz. Another Summer Jam signature is the surprise guests that will take the stage.

New this year, fans can watch the Festival Village pre-show featuring A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, School Boy Q, and Azealia Banks.

“Hot 97′s Summer Jam is an amazing hip hop event and a celebration that we want to share with the world,” Ebro Darden, WQHT program director, says. “…It’s going to be a great time.”
