Lil Jon wants compensation for Live Nation’s use of “Lovers and Friends” as festival name
Lil Jon is threatening to take legal action against Live Nation for the second edition of its Lovers and Friends festival.
As TMZ reports, the producer and his legal team wrote a letter to Live Nation about his exclusion in planning the festival. He’s requesting compensation for use of the festival’s title, which is named after his 2004 hit, claiming that his song is better known than Michael Sterling‘s 1991 song of the same name.
Jon’s request is reportedly not the first time he’s attempted to speak to Live Nation about his involvement in the festival. He started talks with the company in May 2022 but didn’t push too hard to ensure that last year’s show still went on.
He’s been attempting to settle the matter outside of the courtroom, TMZ reports.
