For the third year in a row, Trillectro took center-stage in the D.C. hip-hop and electronic communities. Food trucks, clothing vendors and eager music fans filled the RFK Stadium parking lot for a rainy day of music. Although it rained early on, the weather finally held up for a great night of acts like Migos, Big Sean and Baauer among others. However, this wasn’t like Trillectros in the past, as the change in venue provided a bigger space than the H St. Fairgrounds. And with this bigger space came more clothing vendors, more food trucks and even bigger acts than last year. So what did we at WRGW think about Trillectro 2014? Check out what we thought below:

We set out to cover this year’s Mad Decent Block Party, a festival by Diplo’s record label that recently expanded its touring cities and countries to include D.C. and Canadian stops, among others. Your photojournalists, Lotanna and Helen, recap #MDBP2013 for you, in all its audio-visual and literary glory, here and in pictures on our Facebook. Expectations and excitement ran high during our drive up to Merriweather Post Pavilion. For Helen, this show would be her third MDBP having previously attended ‘12 and ‘11 in NYC, and she was curious to see how the Mad Decent crew could top their previous tours. For Lotanna, she was just excited to be involved with anything that had Diplo’s name on it while getting to see some of her favorite performers “turn up,” as the cool kids say these days. Read on after the jump to find out more about our day of 808s, hypemen & twerk teams.
