2011 BROOKLYN HIP HOP FESTIVAL Ticket Packages Now On Sale

Brooklyn Bodega is announcing discounted ticket packages making the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (BHF) New York City's largest but most affordable event.

"Hip-Hop events that cost $50, $60, $100 and more are antithetical to the roots of this culture. Hip-Hop started out in the park with people like Cindy Campbell [Kool Herc's sister] throwing parties for $1 to buy back-to-school clothes. Corporate interests have hijacked our culture charging exorbitant fees that make Hip-Hop events available to only one homogenous group. With these ticket packages, we are cutting closer-to-the-bone to pass on savings directly to our Bodega Family. I also want to take this time to shout out other organizations that venture to make their events affordable to the masses as well: Celebrate Brooklyn, Summer Stage and Tools of War (among others)." - Wes Jackson, Executive Director of The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival
