After several years at the RFK stadium grounds, the annual Broccoli City Festival is returning this year but in a new location: Audi Field at Capitol Riverfront (100 Potomac Ave., SW). The hip-hop festival will transform the stadium into a multi-faceted celebration of Black music and culture on July 27 and 28. 

This year’s headliners are Megan Thee Stallion, Gunna, and Lil Yachty. Other performers include PARTYNEXTDOOR, Sexyy Red, and Victoria Monet—who just snagged the Best New Artist trophy at this year’s Grammys. 

In addition to its music lineup, the festival is hosting a full schedule of other experiences over the two days, including a special appearance from actress Issa Rae, a standup comedy performance by Desi Banks, and a TrapSoul Karaoke session hosted by Bryson Tiller. You’ll also find interactive art installations, a marketplace of Black-owned businesses, and food from local vendors located throughout the stadium grounds.
