Washington, DC, gets a treat during Mother’s Day weekend when Yasiin Bey (the artist formerly known as Mos Def) and songstress turned R&B Divas: LA reality star Chrisette Michele headline the 2nd Annual DC Love Festival. The festival will also serve as the DC leg of Okayplayer’s official 15th birthday party. Taking place at DAR Constitution Hall, attendees can also expect singer/lyricist Maimouna Youssef and more to grace the stage.
Last year’s DC Love Festival featured R&B crooners Raheem DeVaughn and Marsha Ambrosius as headliners. So what else can you expect? A number of boutique trunk shows, plenty of food, bars and VIP areas for the bougie ones among us. The 2014 DC Love Festival is sponsored by Carolina Kitchen, BEAM, Buick and Okayplayer and it looks like the tickets are already sold out. If you have your ticket already or happen to stumble upon one, will you show the festival love?
