Kanye West to headline Powerhouse 2015

Kanye West, Ludacris, Ty Dolla Sign, Tinashe among Powerhouse 2015 acts

Kanye West will headline Power 106’s annual summer hip-hop concert, Powerhouse, the L.A. radio station announced Monday. 

West leads a bill that also includes Ludacris, B.O.B. and Tech N9ne as mainstage draws.

The polarizing superstar has slowly been teasing the follow-up to 2013’s “Yeezus,” titled "So Help Me God," and his appearance at Powerhouse will mark his first full gig in the Southland since he closed out the inaugural L.A. edition of Made In America last summer.

Set for May 16 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Powerhouse’s lineup boasts the mainstream hip-hop that dominates Power 106’s airwaves, but it also features a breadth of local and buzzing talents.

Homegrown favorites such as hip-hop/R&B singer Ty Dolla Sign, Nipsey Hussle, Kid Ink and Casey Veggies will appear. Rising alternative R&B singer Tinashe, Logic and G-Eazy round out the bill. 

Last year’s lineup featured Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, Schoolboy Q, Jennifer Lopez, YG and Trey Songz.

Tickets for Powerhouse go on sale Thursday, with the station’s presale set for Wednesday.
