Hip-Hop is going green. In celebration of Earth Day earlier in the week, Big K.R.I.T. performed at the inaugural Broccoli City Fest held at the  Washington D.C. Fairgrounds Monday (April 21).

Nearly 5,000 people were in attendance, giving the venue one of its largest crowds to date.

While K.R.I.T. headlined the event, more than 10 local performers also took the stage.

The daylong festival was aimed at educating members of the community, unaware of the benefits of a healthy and sustainable lifestyle choices. In addition to live music performances, the Fest offered various activities including  art, dance lessons, and group yoga, the latter of which was led by event partners Sweat Everyday and C4 Performing Arts.

In keeping with the “green” theme, food trucks offered organic and locally grown menu items.

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus, were also on hand to show their support.
