Two of hip-hops' biggest rappers Eminem and Kendrick Lamar will be joined by Las Vegas rock band The Killers at the 2018 Firefly Music Festival.
Eminem Racks Up Festivals
Slim Shady will be one busy performer as the year progresses. The 2018 Firefly Festival will be the "Sing for the Moment" rapper's fifth concert festival that he will perform at this year.
Eminem has also been confirmed to join Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and The Weeknd as headliners for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
He will also join Jack White, Travis Scott, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, N.E.R.D., Margo Price, and Halsey as part of the 2018 Governor's Ball lineup.
If fans cannot catch the rapper at either festival, there is still Bonnaroo where the rapper will join Muse, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Bon Iver, Mavis Staples, and Sheryl Crow as part of that all-star lineup.
Detroit's rap king might perform several tracks from his latest studio album, Revival, which features top collaborations from Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Ed Sheeran, P!nk, Alicia Keys, and X Ambassadors at all festival shows.

2018 is also shaping up to be a big year for both of Eminem's co-headliners. Kendrick Lamar has been nominated for seven Grammy awards including Record of the Year and Album of the Year. Also, Lamar is scheduled to produce the upcoming Black Panther soundtrack.
