DAD loves his dance music, you should know that by now, but we also have a deep appreciation for hip-hop. So when we heard about last year's Trillectro festival, which prides itself on being a "hip-hop and electronic music festival," we smiled wide. With acts like Flosstradamus and DJ Wonder, artists who are already blurring the lines between EDM and hip-hop, on last year's bill with ScHoolboy Q, Casey Veggies, Tittsworth, and Flatbush Zombies? They were on the right path.

Needless to say, 2013 is a new year, and the 2013 Trillectro festival is returning this August. The line-up hasn't been announced as of yet, but just know that if you're going to be in the Washington, DC area around that time, you should make it a point to hit Trillectro. Need an excuse to get out there? How about two round-trip airline tickets, a two-night hotel stay, and a pair of tickets to Trillectro? MiO Nights has a special contest going on with SuperGlued that you will grant you those gifts. Enter now; you won't be disappointed!
