(Urbana, IL) － Today, Prime Social Group announce the highly anticipated lineup for the inaugural year of Prime Music Festival in Urbana, IL + Lansing, MI. The festival take place on Sept. 14 at Urbana’s Champaign County Fairgrounds, and East Lansing on Sept. 14-15 at Adado Riverfront Park.
PRIME carefully explores the intersection of hip-hop and electronic music resulting in a supremely curated lineup that includes some of the most impressive names in the industry with festival headliner Russ taking main stage. The lineup also features Diplo, Matoma, Lil Skies, Smokepurpp, Elephante, SoDown, The Harley Boys, and more.
Taking the mainstage this year is hip-hop kingpin Russ.

Headlining the EDM portion of the bill is the king of tropical house, Matoma, who is best known for his dance-oriented tracks like his remix of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Old Thing Back” which hit over 222 million plays on Spotify, and his track “False Alarm” which hit over 150 million Spotify plays. Taking 2018 by storm, Matoma dropped his new track “Lonely” featuring MAX and announced the impending release of his follow-up LP, One in a Million.
