Wiz Khalifa’s anwiznual “Under The Influence” tour will feature Young Jeezy, Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, Mack Wilds, Rich Homie Quan, IamSU!, Sage the Gemini, and DJ Drama - will round out the lineup for this summer’s outing, which will kick off July 24th in Scranton Pensylvania with a stop at Jones Beach on July 31.

Wiz Khalifa has successfully turned “Under The Influence” into an annual tour. While the last two installments were co-headlining ventures, with Wiz sharing the large print with Mac Miller and ASAP Rocky respectively, this year will see Wiz as the sole headliner— though there are still plenty of big names involved.

It’s safe to assume that concertgoers and performers alike will be under the influence of a lot more than just music at this summer’s Under the Influence of Music Tour. Even so, with the cast of characters set to perform, the music on its own should get fans pretty high… This year’s installment seems ripe for sprinkles of shared set time. The artists on the bill have a handful of collaborations between them: Wiz was featured on Ty Dolla’s “Or Nah”; Iamsu! was all over Sage the Gemini’s album Remember Me; DJ Drama tapped Tyga for his single “So Many Girls”; and on Tuesday (April 22), Iamsu! released “What You ‘Bout,” featuring Wiz, to name a few.
