Trillectro turned the DMV up with it’s fourth installment of the hit music festival. Making its annual appearance at a new venue this year seems to have brought about some positive new changes too. Smoother entry, varied seating options and more female acts spiked concert goers’ trill barometer as they recapped the event in realtime on social media.
For a fresh dose of estrogen, this year’s show was hosted by Miami’s self-proclaimed “Director of Vibe” Yes Julz. With her own version of a “Hit the Quan” dance contest, she laid a clear path to turn up for opening acts like RL Grime. The crowd went crazy for the Trap / Bass/ Hip-Hop DJ who said himself that the show was a movie!

Virginia’s own D.R.A.M. kept the stay hot and the wires live with viral his hit “Cha Cha,” while Bay Area beauty Khelani got lit with her awesome R&B vocals and trill dances moves. Keeping it West Coast, Dom Kennedy also performed a set alongside Norwegian turntablist Cashmere Cat.

The 9:32 Stage served as a home base so to speak, providing the shining stars of the DMV a platform to showcase our own trill scene. Openers included Mista Selecta, Babeo Baggins, Hi$to, Nativesun, and Ayes Cold.





This year’s headliner Chance the Rapper shut everything down with an epic performance co-staring live band Noname Gypsy touching on hits from both his breakout mixtape Acid Rap (2013) through to his latest release Surf.

By the looks of it, attended enjoyed themselves and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters. Catch our photos from the day here in the gallery below. Until next year, stay trill.
