With this year's theme "GET WET", prepare to get drenched by the hottest performances, fashion shows, and competitions ever to hit one dynamic stage. For three days of non-stop fun, experience episodes of Revamp (segments showcasing the hottest dance acts across the country accompanied by live performances); Beach Towel Throwdown (BET's liveliest hip-hop concerts);
Freestyle (rap competition with celebrity judges); and Rides, Rims, and Runway (featuring the most tricked out celebrity rides, sexy fashion models and sizzling performances). All shows will tape April 15-17 and are guaranteed to blow the sand off the beach!
