By now, you shouldn’t be a stranger to the word Trillectro.” Thanks to the DCtoBC team, the worlds of hip-hop and electronic music will collide at D.C.’s first annual festival of the sort, and with just two days remaining before the event, it's nearly sold out.

The bill features artists you’ve heard of like ScHoolboy Q, Casey Veggies and Flosstradamus, so here’s the chance to learn about some lesser known artists, prior to the show. Walking blindly into a new experience can be tons of fun, but we think it will be that much cooler if you know a little something about a few of these acts.

So to get hip to the 10 Artists at Trillectro You Should Know, click through for info on their background and suggestions for music to check out before you hit the fest.
