We are always talking about getting up off your ass and doing what you want. What better way to express this than an awes0me music festival full of amazing talent and trill surprises, completely put together by young Gen-Y-ers who do what they want to do?? Enter TRILLECTRO- the genre-mashup music festival taking place THIS SATURDAY August 11th in the nation’s capital.
trillectro is the first event of its kind within the city limits of the district of columbia.
on august 11th, 2012, thousands from DC, maryland, virginia and beyond will come together in the name of hip-hop and electronic music at the HALF STREET FAIRGROUNDS, an untapped venue right outside the Nationals Park and across the street from the Navy Yard metro stop. 20+ performances from the most promising emerging artists in the nation, all of whom, if you asked them, couldn’t categorize their sound very simply or put themselves into a box. besides, lanes are for lames, and nobody likes being pigeonholed. as featured band phony ppl said,
that’s the mindstate of every act on this bill – DJs, producers, rappers, singers, and everything in between. believe you’ll see a whole bunch of all of that at trillectro.
what makes trillectro different than any other awesome music festival that you’ve heard of or been to? trillectro reflects the new generation. it’s the age of DO IT YOURSELF – DIY. whether it’s launching and successfully funding a kickstarter, or creating and branding your accessories line on etsy. we don’t have to wait for anybody to do anything for us because we can do it ourselves. that’s how DC to BC was created, and that’s how the talent recruited for this festival has been so successful. it’s not some big corporate machine coming into DC trying to harness “cool” for a quick buck, either. it’s put together by a group of kids who love music and want to share the good sounding stuff with the masses. this is an event for the doers, by the doers.
Your 2 dope bitches will , of course, provide as many photos of this event as possible, as I, Aja am going home to Maryland for my dad’s birthday and will be joining in the fun over at the Fairgrounds. I personally can’t wait- the bill is amazing- I mean, ScHoolboy Q, Body Language, Casey Veggies, Flosstradamus (who I saw at the Roots Picnic) along with Tabi Bonney, Beyond Modern and Flatbush Zombies? Are you kidding?? Gianni Lee Dj’ing along with DJ Wonder and some people I’ve never heard of (but I trust the musical taste of the DCtoBC cats so I’m sure I’ll be happy) is sure to be a good look. This show is going to be amazing. I am so proud of Modi and the DCtoBC team for throwing this together!
People, all you need is a passion and a decision not to give up when shit gets difficult and you can do basically whatever you want. Just sayin’.
what should you expect?
music. a group of cool kids, nerds, jocks, weirdos, freaks, geeks, artisans, hipsters, hippies, yuppies, youngins, YG’s, OG’s and maybe even a couple triple OG’s that are so colorful, they make a united colors of benetton ad look bland. toss in some girls and guys who are dressed in heels and brand new kicks and didn’t get the memo that this is a music festival, not a fashion show. old friends and new friends. locals and transplants. more music.lights. speaker stacks. moon bounces. tasty ass food. tank tops and tankinis. short shorts. worn-in sneakers and flats. snapbacks. pins. stickers. glowsticks. gold teeth. whistles. lighters in the air (or smartphones – it’s 2012). cornhole. life-sized board games. enough space for hip-hop and EDM heads alike to spin around, dance, and rock out as you please. enough tweets, instagrams, videos, facebook posts hashtagged #trillectro to make this historic event live on for a while – a social media explosion if you will. even more music. vendors trappin’ out of their booths. heavy customization (shout out to young veggies). attendees engaging with the freshest brands and newest innovations. DJs and producers bumpin’ a mixture of their favorite jams and their own musical creations. live bands feeding off the crowd’s vibes to give the performance of a lifetime. hands waving in the air. peace. love. happiness. the past. the present. the future. all in all, the energy of an awesome music festival in obama’s backyard.
that’s trillectro. an endeavor aimed at reshaping and redefining DC’s stuffy, conservative culture. see you there.
Ahhhh I’m so excited for this damn event, I even read through the FAQ’s and everythang. People, especially people in the DMV, you should go to this festival. I mean, is there something better for you to do this Saturday? Be serious- catch me there and ask for a 2dopebitches pin while you’re at it!!
