(AllHipHop News) President Barack Obama will attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Austin, Texas during the first day of the South By Southwest festival. Roc Nation rapper J. Cole will be on hand to perform at the event.
The fundraiser will be hosted by Will “Whurley” Hurley, founder of the Austin-based startup Honest Dollar, and The Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am. Tickets range from $250 (general ticket guest) to $500 (preferred section guest) to $10,000 (photo line) to $33,400 (co-host).
A description for the reception reads:
Our Party, led by President Obama, is focused on building an economy that lasts—an economy that lifts up all Americans.
That’s why Democrats in all 50 states are working in neighborhoods and communities to advance issues like job creation, education, health care, and clean energy.
The DNC event featuring J. Cole is scheduled for Friday, March 11 at the Austin Music Hall. The South By Southwest festival 2016 runs in Austin from March 11 through March 20. The DNC fundraiser is not directly connected to SXSW.
