Coming November 3 & 4 in Washington D.C. w/ live podcasts, authors, conversations and more.
BYT Media announces dates, location and initial talent for a thrilling new project: Death Becomes Us – A True Crime Festival. The two day event, the first of its kind in Washington D.C., is expected to attract upwards of 6,000 attendees at the Lisner Auditorium on November 3rd & 4th, with warm-up events around city in the weeks leading up to it.
Why a true crime pop culture festival and why now?
Over the last couple of years, True Crime has gone from (mostly) sensationalist fare, to prestige entertainment. Shows and podcasts like Serial, My Favorite Murder, Making a Murderer, Evil Genius, Last Podcast on The Left and Criminal are helping transcend niche audiences and applying world class storytelling (and often humor) to these compelling tales of murder, conspiracy and mayhem. In a polarized world where there is no clear cut mass audiences anymore, these stories provide us with heros and anti-heroes we can all agree (to have conversations about). It is time we take the conversation about them from the proverbial water-cooler and into a real life environment
The initial talent announcement includes Last Podcast On The Left, Buzzfeed Unsolved and How Did This Get Made – (A Very Special) True Crime Edition, with more exciting talent and content announced shortly.
Individual show tickets and information will be released in the coming weeks, but currently for those wanting to reserve their spots the Death Becomes Us All-Access Pass is available right now. This *very* limited quantity pass guarantees entry to all shows for only $101 + fees.
What can the audiences expect from the festival?
Podcasts, storytellers, likely some screenings and authors too.There will be at least three shows per day (into night) and all shows are general admission.
