1000 people, between the age of 13 to 24, are infected with HIV every month. Sway and Lifebeat have joined forces to spread the word on how important it is to use protection and get tested.
On June 27, 2014 from 8pm-11pm, Lifebeat, will host KYSS (KNOW YOUR STATUS STAGE) at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. Confirmed talent includes A$AP Ferg, Flatbush Zombies, Po Johnson and Bodega Bamz. International DJ/Producer Zeke Thomas will keep the crowd dancing in between sets.
Attendees can only obtain tickets through the “Get Tested, Get In!” campaign, which will run from June 2nd through June 22nd. People who get tested for HIV between those dates at select partner testing sites, such as the Out of the Closet Thrift Store at 475 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, NY, will be rewarded with a free concert experience. Once tested, partner sites will hand out a ticket to gain entry to the concert. Tickets are limited due to venue capacity. Testing is easy, using the new finger prick INSTI™ test – it takes less than 60 seconds to obtain results. The list of partner testing sites can be found at www.Lifebeat.org, or below.
