Rocker Machine Gun Kelly first made a name for himself as a rapper from Cleveland, Ohio. The 32-year-old performer possesses a remarkable duality in transitioning from hip-hop to rock. Emerging in 2006 as a rapper, Machine Gun Kelly jumpstarted his career by releasing four highly-acclaimed mix tapes. In 2011, he signed with Bad Boy Records, and the following year, he dropped his debut album Lace Up. The album entered the Top 5 of the U.S. Billboard 200, and his single “Wild Boy” dominated the airwaves. In 2019, Machine Gun Kelly demonstrated that he can excellently do rock and hip-hop through his fourth album Hotel Diablo, which contained rap-rock tracks. By 2020, his fifth studio effort, Tickets to My Downfall, marked his full transition from hip-hop to rock. This was demonstrated by his pop-punk hits “My Ex’s Best Friends” and “My Blood Valentine.” In 2022, Machine Gun Kelly released his latest rock album, Mainstream Sell Out. The album dominated the Billboard 200, Top Alternative Albums, and Top Rock Albums charts.
Machine Gun Kelly will share the stage with some of the hottest rising stars in rock and alternative music. Fans can look forward to high-energy sets from pop-punk icon All Time Low, sensational singer-songwriter Gayle, and Southern rock outfit, Giovannie, and the Hired Guns.
