We decided to give you ‘The People’s Perspective’ with our Trillectro 2016 recap.
Trillectro has been a family reunion for creatives and music lovers every year since it came to the greater Washington, D.C. area in 2012. The fifth annual festival took place on Saturday, August 27th at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. The drive from DC was definitely longer than I would have liked, but it had to be done.
Kid Cudi was the headliner of the festival, which also included performances from Rae Sremmurd, Goldlink, Lil Uzi Vert, ESTA, Cousin Stizz, 070 Shake, Larry June, Jay IDK, Ari Lennox, Mista Selecta, Mane Squeeze, Dirty Chocolate, Lean Quatifah, The Yellow R Kel, Spicoli, and Tastefaker.
Let’s get this out the way before I say anything else. One of the most important #ForTheCulture things to occur during this year’s Trillectro was when Kid Cudi debuted an unreleased track produced by Pharrell. You can head to trillectro.com to get access to that song. I’d advise you to not slack on that.
Am I more qualified than other attendees to talk about the day’s events? Certainly not. That’s what sparked the angle for this year’s Trillectro recap. We decided that it’s better to give you the people’s perspective from all angles than to just give a recap of the performances. A festival experience is always going to be about way more than what happens on stage. Emphasis on “experience.”
That being said, the quotes below come from a variety of different people – artists, tastemakers, photographers, vendors, and fans. We also included additional shots from the day afterwards, because why not?
Thank you to the whole Trillectro team for helping us close out summer 2016 in grand fashion.
