Earlier today we got the announcement that Beyonce will headline the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans this summer. Now we have word that the Queen will co-headline The BET Experience weekend on June 28-30 in Los Angeles. Bey will handle day one of the weekend – which culminates in the BET Awards – and Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, R.Kelly and The Jacksons have also been announced as headliners for the event. Exciting stuff. According to BET, the weekend will also include:
Along with the concerts, the BET Experience will also feature: the Music Matters stage, featuring up-and-coming artists; the BET Grammy Museum exhibit; the Film Fest, showcasing a diverse array of new film releases; and the 106 & Park stage, which brings its energetic audience to the Nokia Theater for celebrity appearances and free live performances.
