Other artists that hit the stage included Vic Mensa, Gunplay, Bodega Bamz, Remy Banks and Worlds Fair.

Of course it wouldn’t be a Peter Palooza without some special guests added to the line-up. Smoke DZA, Jaden Smith, Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants and Amber Rose were also in attendance, along with the entire Hot 97 family.
