“Broccoli City has positioned itself as one of the most anticipated events of the year. We knew when we joined forces that topping previous lineups would undoubtedly become a bigger challenge each year. The overwhelming response we received to the duet by Daniel Caesar and H.E.R., Cardi B.’s high-energy performance, and Migos’ culture-infused finale, inspired us to raise the bar even higher this year.” said Heather Lowery, VP of Talent and Touring for Live Nation Urban “We’re excited to deliver another unforgettable festival and conference lineup this year, while staying true to the core of what Broccoli City does best which is, produce unforgettably unique, authentic and accessible live experiences that move millennials to take action in their community.”
Last year’s celebration brought together a sold out crowd of more than 35,000 fans to experience a celebration of music, art, culture, food and volunteerism in all forms including performances from Migos, Cardi B, Miguel, Nipsey Hussle, Daniel Cesar, H.E.R, Rich the Kid, Lightshow, HoodCelebrityy and Grits & Biscuits. The growth in attendance and popularity of Broccoli City Weekend prompted organizers to move the conference, BC All Night and the festival to bigger venues.
