Swizz Beatz Is Putting On An Amazing Art & Music Festival For Art Basel | Read The Details Here!

By  | 

There are a lot of reasons why I am such a huge fan of Swizz Beatz. His involvement and growth into the art world is one reason for sure. The LEGEND of a producer and art lover Swizz Beatz has launched a three-day art and music series at Art Basel Miami Beach in Florida, featuring his wife Alicia Keys, Pusha T, Wiz Khalifa, DMX & more!

With proper partners on the series, Beatz has teamed up with Bacardi for the festival which will feature the headliners listed above as well as DJs and an array of artists. “Casa Bacardi” in Wynwood will be curated by Beatz and will also feature a No Commission Art Fair, where artists will showcase their work for free and take home 100 per cent of proceeds. This is AMAZING!

“It’s by the artist, for the artist, with the people,” Swizz tells Billboard. “I think a lot of people forgot the message of why they’re even going down to Basel. You’re going down to Basel because there are amazing, creative artists who took a lot of time out of their lives to put together some masterpieces and hope for entry in a great collection or for somebody to be inspired. Not taking anything away from Basel or from the galleries, I just chose to do something different. And I think the world needs more powerful collaborations that are willing to push the envelope and not really follow the necessary rules that are laid out.”

And there you have it! Are you attending Art Basel 2015? Will you be checking out Swizzy’s festival?
