Many things are happening this year. We are still determining, but it seems like the festival will have two parts. Outside will be the central music part of the festival, and the live experience part seems more suited for lounges.

Remember, the Broccoli City Festival was the original “Earth Day,” focused on sustainability. The festival organizers also host BroccoliCon, a series of panel discussions focused on ways to help promote the culture.

Broccoli City Festival Reviews

Here are a few fascinating Broccoli City Festival Reviews. We are still determining how a change of location will affect the festival, but we expect an urban crowd and beautiful people.

“But even if it required more choices than before, this year’s Broccoli City only offered good options. And if the weather ever cooperates, it’s on the way to becoming bigger than Southeast, bigger than Washington itself — it’s a festival that knows what people want to hear, even if they don’t.”

The Diamondback

“But Broccoli City Festival in Washington D.C. is a relief from those cliches. Mixing the regional flavor of DMV rap, R&B, and Go-Go. For those in the know, Broccoli City Festival has some of the best lowkey lineups, and regularly books artists on the precipice of blowing up. The vendors are mostly local and community-based: Legacy DC, Roaming Rooster, DTLR, Po Boy Jim, and others set up shop and supply festival-goers with food, giveaways, and experiences. You can even buy weed.”

Writes Josh Svetz for Okay Player

Not everyone is sharing the enthusiasm:

“Very disorganized, people who had lost their passes were waiting for up to 3 hours, the lines were disorganized so people kept cutting in line. There was nobody monitoring the lines or security. Lack of professionalism. People passing out and lines closing because of lack of staff.. worse experience ever

Decided to leave at 7pm we were waiting in line since 3. The people giving the passes stopped doing it because they didn’t want to deal with people”
