Los Angeles, CA (July 12, 2019) – REVOLT announced today that general admission tickets, provided by AT&T at no cost, are now available for the New York kickoff event for the REVOLT Summit. The kickoff event takes place on Wednesday, July 24th at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre. The official Summit events take place in Atlanta on Sept 12-14 and in LA Oct 24-26.
The New York event, reimagined with AT&T as presenting sponsor, will serve as a taste of the conversation and music that will take over Atlanta and Los Angeles later this year at the highly anticipated REVOLT Summit series, a multi-city Hip Hop event inspired by the former REVOLT Music Conference (RMC). As the first of three epic cultural happenings, REVOLT’s New York event will celebrate and honor the Hip Hop community by offering general admission tickets to the kickoff at no charge, creating an inclusive, accessible and one of a kind experience.
“The REVOLT Summit brings artists, creators and executives together to celebrate the culture and empower the community,” says REVOLT Chairman Sean Combs. “We’re starting in New York, then going to Atlanta and Los Angeles — Three cities that live and breathe Hip Hop.”
The celebratory event in New York will feature a live presentation of REVOLT’s “State of the Culture” with Joe Budden and co-hosts Remy Ma and Jinx along with special guest A$AP Ferg. This will be an opportunity for attendees to be part of a deep dive discussion with leading industry experts led by the hosts of REVOLT’s acclaimed show. Following SOTC, co-host of REVOLT’s The Breakfast Club and radio personality, Charlamagne tha God, will join a moderated panel designed to share inside knowledge on the business of Hip Hop and start the discussion on issues important to the culture. Hosted by creator, actor, comedian and recording artist DC Young Fly, the event will culminate with special live concert performance from magnetic breakout singer, Queen Naija.
VIP tickets will only be available at select New York based AT&T retail stores. VIP perks include front-of-the-line access, premium seating and exclusive pre-event networking opportunities with industry experts to be announced.

“We are excited to officially launch the REVOLT Summit at Brooklyn’s famed Kings Theatre,” said REVOLT CEO, Roma Khanna. “Here guests will have the opportunity to engage and be part of a live State of the Culture event and be part of the discussion of Hip Hop culture today. We want to share a real understanding and glimpse of what’s to come at the Summits in Atlanta and Los Angeles.”
The REVOLT Summit will offer young people an immersive experiential opportunity to learn, network and celebrate the world of Hip Hop and culture, and will ultimately help them develop and hone the crucial skills needed to grow their companies. AT&T, the exclusive presenting sponsor of the REVOLT Summit, will help expand reach by providing tickets and greater access for those seeking to become future leaders. And, in true REVOLT style, the event will include performances from major artists, spotlight new emerging artists, showcase local talents and offer plenty of opportunity to celebrate culture. Previous RMC events hosted influential cultural leaders like Issa Rae, DJ Khaled, Bozoma Saint John, Andre Harrell, and Scooter Braun, and also featured performances from top tier artists such as Cardi B, SZA, 2 Chainz, and Post Malone.
