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.

#Trillectro2015 was an eclectic mix of artist. Main stage acts were solid. However, the 9:32 Stage was turned up & engaging all day all day.

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.
