DC to BC announced Wednesday that Big Sean and Baauer will headline this year’s Trillectro Music Festival, with performances from Migos, SZA, Lunice, Fat Trel, Sango, and more. The daylong event will take place on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at RFK Stadium Festival Grounds in Washington D.C..
“We could not have made this happen without our supporters who believed in this vision,” Jason Mowatt, co-founder of Trillectro Music Festival, said in a statement. “We also want to thank this year’s sponsors: Heineken, Reebok Classic, Shoe City, Events DC, and Karmaloop. Together we are going to make history for the DMV.”
In just two years since its inception, Trillectro has emerged as one of the east coast’s most talked about music festivals and a cultural destination, attracting “trill seekers” from all across the United States.
Staying true to the festival’s origins, this year’s lineup features an energetic mix of emerging hip-hop and electronic talent that fans are sure to enjoy. In particular, festival attendees can look forward to what is sure to be an Instagram-worthy performance from ATL hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, whose “No Flex Zone” single has already taken over the airwaves. But fans are not the only ones who have a reason to be excited. For this year’s co-headliners, Big Sean, signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music, and Baauer, the mastermind behind the “Harlem Shake” viral sensation, this will be both artists’ first time headlining a music festival.
“The goal for us this year was to compile a diverse lineup spanning the hip-hop and electronic genres,” said Quinn Coleman, Trillectro Music Festival co-founder. “This year’s lineup is full of acts poised to make a huge splash in their respective worlds, as well as a few who have already done so. I couldn’t be more excited to see this year’s bill come to life-- plus we’ve got some surprises in store.”
