Music has changed immensely since the Internet shook things up. But the energy people feel when they experience an artist live is still a powerful way to grab the attention of fans. It is an intimate exchange of thoughts, feelings and emotions. BET hit the nail on the head this year as they rocked out for a weekend of tangible entertainment that should provide memories for many for years to come.
The BET Experience was filled with some of the hottest acts out now. The actors, actresses, singers, rappers, comedians all came out to have a great time. Fans also had the opportunity to enjoy the events with the new BET Experience, which included everything from a film fest to live music performances (Beyonce performed on Friday June 28) to the BET Awards.
Don't get us wrong, this was the inaugural year of this event and there definitely needs to be some improvements, but we will focus on the good. Check out five reasons why this was a great idea!
Diversity â This allows BET to show the diversity of their music and their culture. Regardless, if you are there to receive an award, check out legends perform, listen to new talent or just enjoy the festivities, the most important thing is for you to enjoy the energy and magic of music.
BET IS LIVE
BET IS LIVE â This festival helps to add another dimension to the “BET experience”. People from all over can come and enjoy what BET is all about. They can smell, touch, see and feel it. It is real!
Star Power â Not only will they have amazing acts on the main stage as well as other stages, this festival will attract stars that may not be involved in music. LA is the home of HOLLYWOOD so we are destined to see some stars come out and shine.
West Coast Love
West Coast Love â “California knows how to party. California knows how to party. Keep it rocking!” LA is usually jumping during the Grammy Awards, but this new BET Experience gives LA something to brag about. Events like the BET Experience help to further give a city an identity. When you think about Essence Music Festival, you think about New Orleans. This is a great way to solidify LA as one of the music capitals of the United States. Keep it rocking West Coast!!!
Worthy Entertainment – Whether you enjoy films, music or educational workshops, this was an experience for you to enjoy one or a little bit of everything. And let’s not forget about the nightlife, we know how LA gets down when it comes to parties…ask Jamie Foxx.
