BET launched the festival last year, but the BET EXPERIENCE has been more than 2 years in the making. It is a way for the network to expand it's award show and make L. A. a destination for urban music fans in search of a big ticket event. BET teamed with promoter GOLDENVOICE, a division of AEG to select talent for the festival.
