Broccoli City 2019 boasts a loaded lineup.
The headliners for the 3rd-ever Broccoli City music festival have been announced. Among the list of invitees: Lil Wayne and Childish Gambino will be counted upon to drive ticket sales. Next in line are artists like 6lack, Ella Mai and Teyana Taylor, Wizkid, Gunna, City Girls, YBN Cordae, and Lil Baby in the middle card. As with previous events, Broccoli City will be staged on FedEx Field in Maryland, just five miles out of Washington, DC, on April 26-27.
"We really focus on delivering on a specific narrative with all of our live platforms," Shawn Gee, president of Live Nation Urban, told Billboard in a press memo regarding this year's itinerary. "As I see the various lineups for festivals being announced, it seems like the trend is to try to be all things to all people, which is the antithesis of what we are about. We’re excited about this year and what we were all able to put together."
Last year, festival organizers were able to pull 35,000 people with a lineup spearheaded by Cardi B, Migos and Miguel. This year, Live Nation Urban and the other investment consortium expect to do one better. Festival passes go on sale this Friday at 10 am, over at bcfestival.com.
