"As a black-owned, millennial-led festival, we take great pride in our ability to create safe and authentic spaces for the black community to gather and celebrate the beauty of our culture," said Brandon McEachern and Marcus Allen, Founders of Broccoli City Festival. "At a time like this, it's imperative for us to protect these spaces and encourage one another to make their voices heard, which is why our return to Washington, D.C. is so important. Not only does this move symbolize a return to WHERE we started, it's also symbolic of our return to the root of WHY we started -- to educate, equip and mobilize millennials to build thriving urban communities that sustain future generations."
Beyond the music, Broccoli City Festival attendees will experience an expanded festival footprint, improved entry lanes, enhanced brand activations, and more. New this year, Broccoli City has partnered with Crown Royal to provide fans with the Royal Experience Pass. In addition to special viewing areas and access to the all-new Royal Experience Lounge, pass holders will now have access to exclusive grooming services, sneaker cleaning, charging stations, private bars and more.
"We are excited to welcome Broccoli City Festival back to the District of Columbia to celebrate our culture and our values at the newly redeveloped RFK Campus," said Mayor Muriel Bowser. "DC is the capital of creativity, and as it is every summer, we expect that creativity will be on full display at Broccoli City."
General Admission tickets start at $79. Broccoli City will donate $.50 from each ticket sold to the Broccoli City Foundation and its partner organizations in the D.C. Metropolitan areas. For more information on Broccoli City and to purchase tickets, please visit www.BCFestival.com.
