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,
"we, just do our thing / i rap when i want, and when i want / i will siiiiing…"
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.
