Day 2 proved that the show must go on despite a couple of drops of rain with electrifying performances from Future, DJ Snake, French Montana, Bella Thorne, Rich the Kid, and many more.
Sunday night didn’t bring us good weather, but it brought us musical heat. The second day of the 4th annual Billboard Hot 100 Festival hosted stellar performances from a diverse selection of music’s most notable acts, including Future, DJ Snake, French Montana, Bella Thorne, Bhad Bhabie, Machine Gun Kelly, NGHTMRE, Rich the Kid, Logan Henderson, Two Friends, Rozes, J.I.D., The Knocks, Sabrina Carpenter, Bexey, and more.
Situated at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, the event saw performances from talent that spans across a singular music genre. Separated into three stages – the Beach Stage, the Sun Stage, and the Hot 100 Stage – Billboard ensured that everyone’s musical taste was represented in some way or another. Despite the rain, every artist brought their A-game and proved to those in attendance why they’re the best of the best. The day was full of surprises and unforgettable moments that blew last year’s Hot 100 Fest out of the water. Particular highlights included Bella Thorne joining Bhad Bhabie during her performance, influencer / YouTuber Tana Mongeau’s appearance during Bella Thorne’s set, and the eruption of a harmonious choir during DJ Snake’s performance of his 2016 smash-hit, “Let Me Love You”.
Performance-wise, standouts of the event were Rich the Kid, who had the crowd going crazy during the entirety of his set & treated fans to not one – but two – renditions of his chart-topping ‘Plug Walk’, a surprise appearance from MadeInTYO, NGHTMRE, The Knocks, DJ Snake, and the man of the evening, Future. Check out Billboard’s exclusive interview with this months cover artist, French Montana here.
We’re looking forward to seeing what next year’s edition of Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival has in store for us. Make sure to keep up with Billboard’s socials to remain exposed to incredible music & ones to watch.
