“What makes PXP Fest unique is that everyone belongs here, and we’re all equal. We celebrate diversity & cultural pride. Nowhere else can you get all your favorite genres on one stage. It’s been tailored for the open-minded music fan. It’s a place where you can bring your diverse circle of friends & family and there’s something for everyone. It’s the only place where you get to travel the world without a visa & the only limitation is your imagination.”

PXPFest is also offering attendees the opportunity to make a lasting difference through their participation in the event as a portion of each ticket sold will contribute to Akon Lighting Africa, the Konvict Music boss’ solar power initiative working to bring electricity to 25 countries by 2016. Tickets for the 2015 Passport Experience Festival can be purchased at PXPFest.com.
