Sway Fest 2019 is coming to Oakland on Oct. 18, 2019.
Created by hip-hop radio personality Sway Calloway, the event is “a celebration of community in the Bay Area.”
For the first time, Sway is partnering his SiriusXM Shade 45 team with Pandora to launch the inaugural Sway Fest 2019.
“Sway Fest 2019 is a celebration of our unique culture in the Bay Area and my hometown of Oakland,” said Calloway. “It’s going to be amazing coming home and highlighting what makes the town a special place.”
The live broadcast event will be hosted by Sway right outside of Pandora’s headquarters on Franklin Street between 21st and 22nd Streets.
A live, four-hour special broadcast will air on Eminem’s channel beginning at 9:00 a.m. PST on October 18th.
Celebrities, surprise guests and local leaders, along with Oakland-based SiriusXM and Pandora employees will be on hand to celebrate hip-hop, community and culture.
Prior to Sway Fest 2019, Sway will also launch his own Pandora Story, a commentary to accompany a playlist of songs that shaped his younger years growing up in the Bay Area.
