Break the Internet Fest background
BTI Fest started in 2016. The inaugural event took place at Gateway DC and attracted more than 5,000 people. Incorporating live hip-hop, technology and higher education, the one-day celebration of youth culture was a huge success and generated nationwide attention. Festival organizers partnered with Radio One to promote the event. Like many other festivals, the event relied on volunteers to ensure the day ran smoothly.
Visitors attending BTI Fest will find traveling to the event a breeze. Gateway DC is just 6.2 miles from downtown Washington, DC, and close to hotels, restaurants, cultural attractions and public transportation routes.
Break the Internet Fest history
Yo Gotti headlined BTI Fest in 2016. The rapper played some of the most popular tracks from his studio albums Life, Back 2 da Basics, Live from the Kitchen and I Am. Yo Gotti wowed the crowd with his dynamic set, which included tracks like "Down in the DM." Meek Mill also appeared at the top of the bill. The hip-hop artist performed some of his biggest songs, including "All Eyes on You" and "R.I.C.O." Meek Mill also brought rapper and hometown hero Shy Glizzy - who hails from Washington, DC, not far from Gateway - onto the stage for a special performance.
Dreezy also made an appearance at BTI Fest in 2016. The Chicago-born rapper entertained the crowd with some of her most famous tracks, including the platinum-selling "Body." Kent Jones showcased his snack for wordplay and emotive lyrics when he took the stage. The rapper performed his track "Don't Mind," which peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier that year. Other artists who played the 2016 festival include Jacquees and OT.
As well as all the live music, BTI Fest handed out $5,000 worth of scholarships to students who used social media for innovation and creativity. These millennials "broke the Internet" with their accomplishments. Organizers also awarded scholarships to students who had won an essay-writing competition. Applicants had to write about their love for Washington, DC, and why they wanted to attend college in the city. BTI Fest 2016 featured food and drink stalls, merch stands and games, too.
