For the 2019 series, GRAMMY® Award-winning modern icon  Jill Scott  headlines all four dates. Meanwhile, GRAMMY® Award-nominated soul songstress and hometown hero  Jazmine Sullivan  joins the bill as direct support on the Philadelphia concert at Mann Center for Performing Arts on June 29. Soul icon  Faith Evans  and  Tweet  round out the lineup for the Dallas engagement July 5 at Toyota Music Factory. A day later,  Boyz II Men  and rising star  Lucky Daye  grace the stage in Houston at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. For the fifth year, the festival resumes at its original Chicago site on Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on July 13 with  Anthony Hamilton ,  MA$E , and  Carl Thomas .

Summer Block Party sets the pace for R&B and soul-centric festival. Since its launch in 2015, it has sold out every year and steadily grown with lineups consisting of genre luminaries and the next generation’s hottest young R&B stars.
