BET is taking over Los Angeles to open up the summer in celebration of the 2024 BET Awards. The media company revealed Monday (April 15) that Cardi B, Davido, Gunna and Sexyy Red will serve as headliners at BET Experience 2024.

Cardi and co. will invade the Crypto.com Arena in Downtown Los Angeles on June 28 to kick off the weekend of festivities. Pre-sale tickets are now available on the BET Experience website.

That isn’t the only concert going down: The famed Hollywood Bowl will also play host to Queen Latifah, The Roots, Common, Jungle Brothers and more on June 29.

Trending on Billboard

For those in L.A., BET is encouraging fans to pull up to the BETX 2024 FanFest at the Los Angeles Convention Center throughout the weekend, which will host “Genius Talks, immersive workshops” and more.

All roads lead to Sunday’s (June 30) BET Awards 2024 to cap off a busy few days in the City of Angels paying homage to hip-hop’s legacy and the dignitaries of Black culture.

Veteran journalist Elliott Wilson speculated that Cardi’s return to the stage could signal the arrival of her anticipated sophomore album around the same time.

“Does this mean ⁦@iamcardib⁩ album 6/28,” he asked on X.

Earlier in April, Cardi B celebrated the sixth anniversary of her Invasion of Privacy Grammy-winning debut and teased fans about her next LP.

“6 years ago I released my first album and it broke so many records GAH LEE!!” she wrote. “6 years later I’m preparing to drop the next one this year.. it’s so different from what everyone is expecting and I’m sooo excited.”

Invasion of Privacy debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The set’s tracklist includes Hot 100 No. 1 singles “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It.”

Cardi B set the tone for 2024 with a pair of singles last month. The first arrived on March 1 with “Like What (Freestyle)” which was followed by the Hot 100 top 10 hit “Enough (Miami).”

It’s been four years, and it’s time we circle the block and bring back the BET Experience! When we talk about lineups, look no further and these are just a few:
