Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival ticketing plan announced. Make your donation now

Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival Tickets 

April 15, 2008
Brooklyn, NY- Brooklyn Bodega, the producers of the 2008 Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, announced today that tickets for this year’s festivities will be available Monday May 5th. This year’s Festival includes a mixture of free, paid, indoor as well as outdoor events. As always Brooklyn Bodega has fought to keep the costs of all BHF events as close to free as possible. However, organizers are asking for a minimum donation of $10 to help support Brooklyn Bodega and the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival.

Attendees interested in attending multiple events will have the opportunity to purchase various packages that include entrance to ticketed events as well as premiums at free events. All information is available on the newly revamped www.brooklynbodega.com

Festival Finance and Production Director Ebonie Jackson, "We currently have 10 dates on our calendar and the most expensive donation package is $100. The smallest is $10. Our goal is simple. If you can afford to support us we welcome that love with open arms. If you cannot we still want you to attend as much of the Festival as you can. Financial barriers in cultural programming should be as low as possible. However we have to be pragmatic. This is an extremely expensive venture and without the financial support of the people this will simply not work." Even the highest ticket package the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is still one of the best deals in summer programming. Similar events such as The Roots Picnic, Paid Dues or Rock The Bells have prices ranging from $50 to $125.

"We are giving you four free film screenings, two all ages outdoor shows in the most beautiful parks in Brooklyn, after parties, free food, free drink, free music, free gear. No matter how you look at it, it is a great deal," added Festival Executive Director Wes Jackson. "I love to see all these great artists playing New York but let’s be honest not everyone can afford the prices. Especially brothers and sisters struggling to make ends meet or young families. We think you should be able to see "A" level Hip-Hop talent without breaking your bank."
