BAPE. Yeezy. OFF-WHITE. Adidas. COMME des GARÇONS.
Brands remained huge at Broccoli City Festival 2016.
Take a look at a few inspirational attendees who showcased outfits that felt Just Souled Out. Take a look at the trendiest festival-goers alongside some hype-worthy apparel.
The past weekend, I gathered with tons of people in the surrounding area to see an amazing lineup of performers at the Gateway D.C. pavilion. The festival strives to promote health and sustainability with music and positive vibes filled the sold-out event despite dreary weather.
This year marks the fourth annual festival and it showcased through its outstanding lineup of artists including my personal favorite artist, Jhené Aiko. Although she remains top in my head, Future also performed an outstanding set. Yet don’t be fooled by the headliners, the opening acts held just as great as later performers. Highlights from the day-long event include:
- Anderson Paak jamming on the drums during his set causing the crowd to become lit.
- BJ the Chicago Kid stepped out in Bape attire and performed a tribute to Prince singing Do Me, Baby.
- The Internet celebrated Syd tha Kid‘s birthday as Goldlink jumped on stage for a brief minute for a hug.
- Oh yes, Goldlink made a cameo during Sango‘s set and the two joined forces for a song.
- Jhené Aiko performed three songs from Twenty 88’s latest album. Her set also included Higher, from her mixtape, and verses from Post To Be and From Time. She also came offstage and into the crowd while singing blissfully into the sunset.
I even managed to find Goldlink himself humbly greeting fans that realized he lurked in the general admission areas for moments.
One of the most unique aspects from the festivities include its unique collection of vendors, artists and sponsors. A Creative DC played a major role in highlighting local talent and bringing them to showcase clothing, art, merchandise and more.
Cheers, Broccoli City Festival and thanks for having me.
