Broccoli City Festival Photos
The 2015 Broccoli City festival took over Washington D.C.’s Gateway Pavilion for an afternoon of art, health initiatives and soulful sounds.
The outdoor fest was packed to capacity with a mélange of melanin as locals, hipsters, out of towners and trendsetters converged to take in artists like Tiara Thomas…
and Timbaland’s protege Tink.
In between the sounds, attendees of the the Southeast D.C. fest also learned about healthy living via Whole Foods, D.C. Vegan and outdoor spin classes while others skipped out completely and enjoyed greasy goodness from local food trucks.
All the while smiles were abound and artists got to work showcasing their skills via graffiti and canvas.
Later there was a torrential downpour and concert goers squeezed to take cover, but some braved the elements as Willow and Jaden Smith hit the stage.
The two teens were also joined by their mother Jada Pinkett who beamed with pride as her kids hit the stage and later wrote about it on Facebook.
Later Erykah Badu a.k.a. DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown kept a low profile with an enormous afro and visor….
and hit the stage to let her turntables do the talking.
Other artists on hand included Kaytranada…
and Joey BadA$$.
