Best Music Festival
Broccoli City Festival
While other music festivals are getting comfortable at their suburban digs or closing shop all together, Broccoli City has quietly become D.C.’s best music festival. Now in its fifth year, the environmentally friendly, healthy-living, community-minded festival is stronger than ever before. Not only does it happen at the criminally underutilized Gateway DC pavilion in Congress Heights, but it has also branched out into a week full of on-brand events, from fun runs to an art night. And the day-of programming is top notch: After nabbing Future, Anderson .Paak, and Jhené Aiko last year, Broccoli City outdid itself by booking Solange, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage and, as always, a slate of local up-and-comers.
