More than half of 2015 had passed with little mention of the next Trillectro Music Festival. That changed on Monday, when it was announced that the fourth installation is scheduled for Aug. 29. Last night, the other crucial piece of information that supporters were waiting on arrived: the lineup.
Chicago rapper Chance the Rapper will headline the festival along with producer RL Grime. Joining them on the bill are singers JMSN and Kehlani, Los Angeles rapper Dom Kennedy, Philly’s Tunji Ige, and producer and DJ Cashmere Cat. Completing the lineup is Virginia rapper/singer and “Cha Cha” mastermind D.R.A.M., as well as DJ Mista Selecta, Hi$to, Masego, Babeo Baggins, Ayes Cold, DJ NativeSun, and Chris McClenney.
With the lineup came another big reveal—Trillectro has once again relocated, this time moving to Columbia’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. Last year, the event graduated from the Half Street Fairgrounds to the festival grounds at RFK Stadium, and the logic behind that decision (growth accommodation) likely inspired this most recent move.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning and can be purchased here. Prepare to make that trek.
