21 April 2022

Over the years, AJ Tracey has been no stranger to the big stage and yet another blockbuster event awaits him as he prepares to headline Festival Republic’s MLB Home Run Derby X on July 9th.

The event is set to take place at London’s Crystal Palace Park and will be a crossover of music and one of America’s biggest sports in Major League Baseball. Legends, current stars, rookies and wild cards will compete in exhibition matches which will showcase home runs and epic catches!

The four teams competing are made up of historical MLB outfits Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees. Alongside the iconic match ups will be interactive baseball activities, food stalls, fashion, gaming and performances on the main stage by Mr. Ladbroke Grove, AJ Tracey!

This will not be the first time AJ has performed at an American sporting event with the NFL welcoming Tracey with open arms for their Half-Time show at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2019.

Speaking on the upcoming event, AJ Tracey said: “London never sleeps, I love it. I’m from here, I grew up here, it’s like performing in my back garden. It’s exciting, multi-cultural, has energy, it’s busy and never quiet.

“My sets always bring the noise and I’m gassed to bring baseball culture to a new crowd. It’ll be clash of music, sports, big hits, mad catches. Big show this summer, Crystal Palace Park, it’s due to be lit. Home Run Derby X – we’re gonna turn up.”
