This Weekend in DC: Broccoli City Festival, Trap Karaoke, Hennypalooza & Cinco De Mayo


The great city of Washington, DC will show this weekend why it’s a top tier city for black millennials! Period! Yes, I am very biased, but read below for all of your weekend moves!

Rae Sremmurd, Solange, Lil Yachty and 21 Savage will headline the 5th annual Broccoli City Festival at the historic Gateway DC in Southeast.


Kevin Abstract, AlunaGeorge, Rapsody, Smino, Chaz French, Nick Grant, Rejjie Snow and Sir the Baptist will also be featured on the festival’s two stages.


To celebrate the festival’s 5th year anniversary, Broccoli City Group is launching Broccoli City Week, a week long incubator for all who strive to create a better world. Broccoli City week will host a variety of events leading up to the festival, everything from city runs, to community action events, to an all night art escape, culminating with the all-day Broccoli City Festival.


TRAP Karaoke is a one of a kind experience where instead of singing hits from the 90s in front of bar goers you rap your fav Gucci Mane or UGK classic to a crowd of hundreds by your lonesome or with the crew.


Trap Karaoke, Thursday, 5/4, Ivy City Smokehouse, 8 – 2 a.m.

The “user-generated concert” experience began in the fall of 2015 and has taken over every major U.S. city.  Founder Jason Mowatt, a music festival organizer, wants to place fans at the center of the concert experience.


HennyPalooza started out as a small, organic gathering of friends. The idea was simple – bring a bottle of the popular cognac Hennessy, and/or food item. After an initial series of texts, emails, tweets and instagram posts, HennyPalooza has become the most shared party series on social media to date. Enjoy the party at the Blind Whino on Friday or for a day party at Stadium on Sunday!
