That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture.” The show is also being produced by ad agency, Translation, in which Jay Z is a partner. There will be a documentary directed by Ron Howard and produced by Brian Grazer and Jay Z that will be releases prior to the festival. Tickets go on sale, publicly, Wednesday April 17.
