Best Music Festival

Since 2012, Trillectro has highlighted the beautiful friendship between hip-hop and electronic music with a lineup that features both local and national talent. Unfortunately, it has also been hampered by long lines, noise complaints, unexpected rainstorms, and dude-heavy bills. Trillectro got everything right in 2015, though, paring down its lineup and taking advantage of the spacious confines of its new home, Merriweather Post Pavilion. Women and queer artists were finally a significant part of the lineup, with Kehlani, Barf Troop, TT the Artist, and Ayes Cold providing some of the day’s most memorable performances. Main-stagers D.R.A.M. and Chance the Rapper proved that the genre-mingling with which Trillectro literally made its name is not going anywhere anytime soon.
