“This year’s lineup continues our tradition of celebrating culture in the DMV, both nationally and locally. We want to continue highlighting those who continue to play a role in driving progress in Black communities,” said Brandon McEachern, co-founder of Broccoli City Festival, via press release. “Our goal is to always create a dope cultural experience and highlight a diverse group of artists who are taking Black music to new heights, and I’m proud of how it’s come together.”
Broccoli City is a Black-owned social enterprise that focuses on people and progress. As per their official site, their mission is to “foster creativity and community growth by building innovative experiences that intersect technology, music, art, and social impact.” The July festival will push this initiative by featuring local food trucks, live art installations, interactive activations, a marketplace village featuring Black-owned businesses, and community programs.
