Yesterday, JAY Z announced that TIDAL had reached the 1 million mark in users, and that there would be an epic event on 10/20 in Brooklyn to celebrate.
Today, a massive charity concert going down at Barclays Center was announced. The “TIDAL X: 1020” concert will feature performances from Jay Z, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, T.I., Fabolous, Damien Marley, Usher, Prince and more. It also isn’t limited to TIDAL users, though TiDAL members get first dibs at purchasing tickets.
Tickets will range from $74 to $244, and they’ll go on sale for TIDAL subscribers September 30th at 12 PM EST. Everyone else can purchase tickets on October 2nd at 12 PM EST.
All proceeds from the event will go towards New World Foundation, with the goal to “benefit nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing positive community relations and effecting systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies, this inaugural event’s philanthropic focus.” TIDAL will match 100% net gross proceeds during the pre-sale period.
If you can’t make it to the show, you’ll be able to live stream it via TIDAL — and once again they’ve opened it up so non-members are also able to stream, free of charge.
