The spring festival season is heating up with the return of Texas hip-hop and electronic music fest JMBLYA. The unique two-day, two-city event will take over Dallas on May 5 and Austin on May 6.

Chance the Rapper will headline both days of JMBLYA. Other big names on the bill include Steve Aoki, Lil Uzi Vert, 6LACK, Young Dolph, Snow Tha Product, YFN Lucci, Pell, and DJ Mr. Rogers. More artists will be announced as the festival draws near.

While headliners have been revealed, venue details for Austin and Dallas are still under wraps. In 2016 the Austin festival was held in the parking lot of the Austin American-Statesman; the Dallas event took place at Fair Park.

JMBLYA is produced by ScoreMore Shows, the Austin-based promoters behind Neon Desert Music Festival in El Paso and San Antonio's successful Mala Luna Music Festival. General admission passes are on sale now for $70 (per day). A limited number of VIP packages are also up for grabs; they range from $99 to $299.
