Go Metro to BET Experience and save on concert tickets

Just when you thought the Southland couldn’t handle another music festival, BET Networks prepares for the BET Experience, a jam-packed weekend of events featuring some of the world’s biggest names in music and entertainment. The four-day festival has only been around five years, yet it’s already become quintessential to summer in L.A.

From Thursday, June 22 to Sunday, June 25, catch DJ Khaled, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi and other chart topping entertainers live at the Staples Center. You may have heard the phrase “rappers want to be ballers and ballers want to be rappers.” Well, some of your favorite artists will get to show their skills on the court during the celebrity basketball game including Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg and more!

Kicksperience, a new installment to Fan Fest, is a buy-sell-trade sneaker event highlighting the sneaker culture phenomenon, street wear, art and music. Fans can also attend seminars on entertainment, beauty and fashion at Genius Talks and enjoy the celebration of Gospel concert. Fan Fest wristbands have sold out online; however, there will be a limited number available at the door. If you’ve already received your wristband, be sure to activate it through the BETX ’17 app.

Of course a weekend full of celebrities in the same location means lots of people and most of all, traffic. To get there easily and avoid the hassle of traffic and parking, take the Blue or Expo Line to Pico Station. It’s just a short walk from there to all the action. Plus, taking transit means you save 15% on concert tickets by entering the exclusive promo code.

Check out the full lineup here and keep in mind, BET Experience is a sure bet for plenty of surprise appearances!
