HOT 97 Summer Jam at MetLife Stadium

Sunday, June 2, 2019, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, HOT 97 Summer Jam is the event of the year where historic moments are made and Hip Hop music & culture are celebrated!

Every year they bring the hottest names to New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium and this year is no exception. #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino meets up with two familiar voices, HOT97’s DJ Wallah and Miabelle to discuss this years’ line up.

This year’s Summer Jam performers include Grammy Award-winning artist and Bronx native, Cardi B, rapper, songwriter, and activist, Meek Mill, two-time platinum selling Hip Hop group, Migos, singer-producer, Tory Lanez, XXL Magazine Freshmen alum, A Boogie, and more.

This years line up has more to offer, as well. As Wallah puts it, “this year’s line up is full of artists that are buzzing throughout the internet and online…Summer Jam got the artists that we really want to connect with this year.”

Additional performers include Rich the Kid, Funk Flex & the Heavy Hitters, Davido, Casanova, Melii, City Girls, Megan Thee Stallion, and , as well as numerous surprise guests, a staple element of Summer Jam.

HOT 97 also has a huge opportunity for new artists, with their Who’s Next Destination Summer Jam contest. Artists can submit tracks, climb the leaderboard and hopefully win the Grand Prize of opening up at Summer Jam Festival Village Stage!

Tickets are on sale now at hot97.com/summerjam and all Ticketmaster platforms. They are not available at MetLife on the day of the event, so make sure to snag yours as soon as possible!

Cucina Camp: A Taste of Summer

Summer is so close, we can practically taste it!

While the coming change in season screams for warm weather, beach weekends and layers of sunblock, it’s also a time for summer camp! #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino welcomes back our friend Cara Di Falco, who has cooked up a special summer experience, Cucina Camp!

Cucina Camp welcomes campers ages 8-15 years old, with lessons broken out by age group. Students are introduced to age-appropriate kitchen skills and grow a deeper understanding of where our food comes from in a hands-on way. Class sizes are kept smaller so that campers experience more than a demonstration, they are fully immersed in the culinary experience.

While the camp boasts a full kitchen and dining space (thanks to partners at Culinary Concepts!) the activities are not limited to cooking. Campers learn the importance of where our food comes from, including the quality of the dirt, and how certain foods can affect your health.

To demonstrate the type of activities a camper might enjoying during their time at Cucina Camp, Cara invites Lisa Marie to whip up some pasta dough.What kid wouldn’t love getting their hands a little messy and playing with dough!?

Cara’s philosophy is that food is creative, so she even incorporates some fun crafts projects that help provide a linear look at food preparation. For example, campers can paint and decorate their own terracotta pot, learn how to properly plant seeds, and then later, cook using fresh herbs.
