Like he always does around this time of the year, Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg will be celebrating his birthday with his annual #PeterPalooza festival. This year, the party will be going down in the borough of Brooklyn at The Knockdown Center on July 27th.
This is the sixth annual #PeterPalooza, and it will include performances by Harlem natives A$AP Ferg and Dave East --- as well as Pro Era members, Nyck @ Knight, and Jay IDK, Westside Gunn & Conway.
Last year's #PeterPalooza took place at Washington D.C.'s Howard Theatre and included performances by Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight, and CJ Fly. Other artists that have ripped the stage for Rosenberg's G-Day include A$AP Rocky, Vic Mensa, Meek Mill, Action Bronson, and ScHoolboy Q and more.
This year, VIBE linked with Rosenberg to give fans a chance to win one pair of tickets to this year's event.

Following her critically acclaimed Cubafonia album, Afro-Cuban singer and renowned jazz toast, Daymé Arocena, plays the Highline Ballroom, Saturday (June 17). And we're giving away tickets to some of our luckiest readers.
Of what to expect from a live performance, the New York Times said this about Arocena's NYC debut in 2016: "Her voice opened up to approach the earthy, full-throated cries of Afro-Cuban ritual chants. But the music surrounding her was far from traditional. It was jazz from a piano-bass-drums trio, with the harmonic and rhythmic complexities of hard-bop and the melodic grace of Brazilian pop. Ms. Arocena unites cosmopolitan musicianship with deep roots."
To win one of two pairs of tickets (2 admission tickets):Follow VIBE Viva (@vibe_viva) on Twitter Tweet “I want to experience #DaymeArocenaNYC, because [say why] #VIBEprize!”
Prize tickets will be available at the door, by providing your name and mentioning VIBE. Doors open at 6 p.m. and show starts at 8 p.m. You have until Friday (June 16) 5 p.m. EST to enter.
Tickets for purchase available here. Arocena's tour kicks off in Chicago this week, to Boston, NYC and beyond through August.
May the best person win!
