AfroFuture Cancels Race-Based Ticket Prices After Eventbrite Demands Reversal

The AfroFuture music festival in Detroit has been forced to reverse their policy of charging white people double the price for tickets, after the ticketing website Eventbrite warned that they do not allow discriminatory pricing structures.

The festival, set to take place August 3rd, was initially offering different ticket prices based on the race of the attendee.

For white people, or “non-persons of color,” early bird tickets cost $20, compared with $10 for people of color. For those planning on buying tickets closer to the event date, white people were asked to pay $40 compared with $20 for people of color.

The pricing structure led to a significant backlash, with critics questioning the legality and ethics of the organizers’ race-based pricing.

One of the performers, a mixed race rapper named Tiny Jag, pulled out the festival in protest, describing it as a “non-progressive” and motivated by “spite.”
