US rapper Cardi B will headline the Bay Dreams 2019 events.

The 'Bodak Yellow' and 'Bickenhead' hitmaker will be performing at ASB Bay Park, Mount Maunganui on January 2 and Trafalgar Park in Nelson on January 4.

"We are so excited to be bringing the hottest act in the world right now. It's super exciting that it's her first time in New Zealand and that she's playing exclusively at Bay Dreams," says promoter Pato Alvarez.

The Grammy-nominated superstar will join US hip-hop trio Migos, Shapeshifter, Tash Sultana, Sticky Fingers, Peking Duk, $uicideboy$, Macky Gee, Pnau, Katchafire and many other artists.

Cardi B is the first woman to have had five simultaneous Top 10 hits on the 'Hot R'n'B/Hip-hop Songs Chart'. She also became the first female rapper to score two number one singles on Billboard Hot 100.

Bay Dreams organisers warn less than 30 percent of the tickets are still available and punters will need to get in fast to avoid disappointment.
