For the past three years, grassroots sustainability-focused organization Broccoli City has spread its message of clean living in the area through its all-encompassing Earth Day celebration, Broccoli City Festival. Using music as the conduit, past installments have featured headlining acts including sentient Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T., brash Harlem-bred humorist Cam’ron, and mesmerizing singer, songwriter, and occasional DJ Erykah Badu. Yesterday, the date for the fourth installment was revealed, as was this year’s crop of talent.
Atlanta rapper Future’s hot streak continues, as he and ethereal Los Angeles singer Jhené Aiko will headline the event on April 30. Gateway D.C. Pavilion will serve as the setting for the third consecutive year, and The Internet, Anderson .Paak, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Sango complete the list of announced performers.
“Music is one of the most powerful ways to bring people together, so we’re confident this lineup does just that and look forward to delivering another impactful event,” co-founder Brandon McEachern says in a press release.
Broccoli City Festival will also offer numerous vendors that align with its mission, a live art installation, and some of the area’s finest delicatessen.
General admission tickets and VIP passes will be available at 10 a.m. Friday with prices starting at $59. Whether it’s sunny that day as it’s been in the past, or a torrential downpour like last year, Broccoli City Festival will last from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. More information is available here.
