Broccoli City turned 5 this year and we helped them celebrate in style! The Staple flock flew in on Thursday where we sat down with Chaz French at his childhood home in Riggs Park, D.C. A lyricist, high energy performer, lowkey comedian and proud father, Chaz was not at a loss for words. In his 1-2-1 w/ @jeffstaple, he talked creative process, love of sunflower seeds, and. . . AND you'll have to wait for the full video to find out more.

Broccoli City Festival is more than just a music festival seeking to entertain while educating the community about healthy habits, and conscious decisions. It seeks to empower the youth and future community activists through education. Our founder spoke on one of these panels at the Google Cultural Center. He was joined by Bri Monee, a full time employee in the tech industry that recently started Spiked Spin, a boutique cycling experience, Brandon Machearn, the founder of Broccoli City fest, and Julian Mitchell a columnist with Forbes.
Saturday was a day stacked with talented performers, visual artists, brands, food trucks, etc. But there were a few acts that stood out. Nick Grant for his lyricism, 21 Savage for his turnt energy, Solange for moving the crowd with her voice and her choreography, and of course Rae Sremmurd closed out the night with a bang.
