The 7th annual BET Experience will pack the Staples Center from Thursday, June 20 to Sunday, June 23. Always a major highlight, the first wave of performers for the concerts that take place during the event were announced today.
Headlining June 21 are Nicki Minaj, who is plugging her latest album Queen, and Lil Wayne, who released Tha Carter V back in September. Tory Lanez, Trippie Redd, and Bri Steves will also perform that night. The next day (June 22) will have headlining performances from Cardi B, who has been on a roll since the release of Invasion of Privacy, and Migos, who will release Culture III soon. They'll be joined by Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, and City Girls.
More acts and additional Staples Center dates will be revealed closer to the event.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday (Feb. 1) at 10 a.m. PST here, but VIP packages are available for purchase right now. With four different tiers, there's something for everyone, including access to an exclusive BETX VIP party and orchestra seats for the BET Awards, which takes place at Microsoft Theater on Sunday, June 23.
