T.I. to headline Wild Splash 2015 lineup

The hip hop festival on the water also brings in some other mainstream-friendly talent.


Tampa Bay's self-styled Party Station and R&B/hip-hop pushers WiLD 94.1 has announced the lineup for the 15th annual edition of WiLD SPLASH, its day-long festival by the water. Leading the talent is three-time Grammy-winning Atlanta-brewed rapper T.I., who's spent some quality time high up on the charts over the past several years, both as the lead artist ("Whatever You Like," "Live Your Life," "Dead and Gone," "No Mediocre," "About the Money") and as a featured guest ("Soldier," "My Love," "Blurred Lines"). 

The rest of the talent filling up the bill is just as mainstream-friendly and includes Miami's own Flo Rida ("Low," “Right Round,” “Club Can’t Handle Me” and current club-banger “G.D.F.R.”), Philly rhyme-slinger Meek Mill ("Tupac Back,” “Amen”), Banton Rouge, La. native  Kevin Gates, and a few R&B-pop up-and-comers, 24-year-old Wash, tapped for Trey Songz track "Lonely," and Dutch-born Natalie La Rose, whose debut single, “Somebody,” is really just a revised version of Whitney Houston’s "I Wanna Dance with Somebody."

WiLD SPLASH 2015 takes place Sat., March 7, at Coachman Park, Clearwater. Limited Early Bird GA tickets are $20 and can be purchased here. Once they sell out, the GA price will climb to $35. Visit the station website for complete event information.
