The 2022 lineup includes 21 Savage, Ari Lennox , Lil Durk, Summer Walker, Jeezy, Gunna, Wizkid, and more. This year, the festival coincides with the launch of BLK Change Weekend, which aims to create a more racially equitable world for Black Millennials and Gen Z.
Wale, who is featured as a Broccoli City performer, announced on Twitter that he is “pulling out” of the festival. Fans speculated that the reason behind Wale’s bold statement is because he wasn't listed as a main headliner. However, the DC-born rapper insisted that was not the case. “I don’t care bout headlining. This isn’t about that”, he tweeted.
Since the viral tweet, festival organizers announced that Wale has now agreed to perform. “Happy to share that the issue has been resolved,” Broccoli City Fest co-founder Jermon Williams told the Washingtonian is a statement.
Broccoli City Festival takes place May 7-8th at the RFK Festival grounds. Pre-sale tickets are available Feb. 1 until 10 p.m. ET. For more information visit BCfestival.com
