Hosted by Akon and created by global DJ, promoter & entrepreneur DJ Fully FocusĀ  the Passport Experience is festival aimed at bridging cultures through music. “It’s the only place where you get to travel the world without a visa” states Focus.

Akon, Chaka Zulu (Ludacris’ manager) & Fully Focus formed a joined venture to grow the PXP brand & branch out to different markets. During my interview with Akon, he disclosed excitedly, “We are taking this event to Nairobi, Kenya in December.”

PXP has partnered up with Jack Daniel’s for a multi city campaign which includes successful events in New York & Los Angeles. This year’s lineup included acts like Shaggy, Rich Hommie Quan, Olatunji, and a slew of African and Caribbean acts to give the festival a truly international flavor.

Fans were swept off their feet when Ashur gave a surprise performance. The PXP experience is an event worthy locking in your calendar. Many people brought their country’s flags to represent their home nations.
