The self-proclaimed biggest hip-hop concert of the year, if you’re into keeping up with the very latest rappers and R&B artists, the Hot Summer 97 Jam is a can’t-miss event -- and well worth the trip even though it’s one day only. With a world-class lineup of some of the best and biggest names in the hip hop business, this concert is sure to leave a lasting impression.
Plus, it’s an excellent excuse to explore New York City, which should be on every camper’s bucket list. Although it’s held outside of town in neighboring New Jersey, the proximity to the Big Apple adds an even more exciting backbeat to what already promises to be an unforgettable adventure.
1 MetLife Stadium Drive
East Rutherford, New Jersey 07073
Those performing at Hot 97 Summer Jam include Cardi B, Meek Mill, Migos, Tory Lanez, A Boogie, Rich The Kid, Funk Flex, Davido, Casanova, Melii, City Girls, Megan Thee Stallion & Kash Doll, Trippie Redd, City Girls, Blueface, Melii, and Nicole Bus & G4 Boyz.
Although RV parking spaces are available for the duration of the concert, there’s no on-site RV camping as such. But that doesn’t mean the Hot 97 Summer Jam is any less of a perfect excuse to take a trip in a travel trailer or motorhome!
Whether you’re attending a concert, festival, or just looking to get away from it all, journeying by RV brings a whole new kind of comfort, convenience, and flexibility to the classic road trip experience. You’ll have your own bedroom, bathroom, and even a fully-functional kitchen along for the ride, which can help you cut costs and enjoy your trip at your own pace.
