The DMV this past weekend was full of festivities! From Broccoli City Festival to pop ups mixed with beautiful weather, everyone was somewhere to be! XI is here to keep you in the loop so let's get to it!
Locals were live at the Broccoli City Festival this year which featured DC’s very own artist Ade’ surrounded by a plethora of new artist like Teyanna Taylor and Ella Mai, sprinkled with a couple of legendary names like Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino this past weekend at the FedEx field in Largo, Maryland.
Yes, Broccoli City always has undeniable stage lineups but according to last year 2018 audience, the service “sucked ass”, there were very limited bathrooms and 0% percent cell phone service. This year the people were pleased that it was more organized this year but were expressing their dislike of the venue, “I know Broccoli City is a festival but it keeps giving me big cookout vibes, I’m from California and I guess I am use to festivals having grass,” says a local BCF attendee.
