Brooklyn is about to get a little hotter. 21 Savage is set to headline the third annual Genius IQ summer concert event Saturday (Sept. 7) at Genius headquarters in Brooklyn, NY. Genius first made the announcement on Monday (Aug. 19).
The jam session will celebrate “music knowledge and the platform’s global community of artists and superfans,” as stated in an official press release. Presented by Boost Mobile, the deeply engaging experience will include Genius’s signature music trivia in their trivia arcade. The Genius Test will challenge attendees allowing them to show off and brag on their music knowledge with the hopes that they can snag a prize or two.
“Our biggest priority is the atmosphere we create for intimacy and deep engagement between artists and fans, which also mirrors what Genius does on the internet every day,” said Elizabeth Milch, director of content at Genius.
