RNB Fridays: The Old School playlist

Australia’s leading promoters (Illusive Presents & Frontier Touring) and biggest radio network (Hit Network) have joined forces to create the country’s most talked-about concert series in a generation.

Since its inception in 2016, RNB Fridays Live has endured an absolutely meteoric rise to already become the largest music event series in Australia. By its third year in 2018, the RNB Fridays Live brand was selling out stadiums nationally and moving over 180,000 tickets across five shows. There has simply never been anything like it in the market.

The brainchild of Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring, RNB Fridays Live capitalised on the hype of the Hit Network’s weekly RNB Fridays radio show which launched in 2014.  Just like its namesake, the concert series puts together the most notable and iconic RNB and hip-hop artists from across eras and generations. The result is an all-day spectacle of back-to-back party jams and the biggest block party the country has ever seen.
