Its founders were told they couldn’t do it. But Trillectro returns for its second year this month, and thanks to a little perseverance on the part of Modele “Modi” Oyewole, Marcel Marshall and Quinn Coleman, the one-day music festival owes its scope and impact to a youthful energy that has in a short period become the event’s signature.
Graduates of Boston College, the trio grew up in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and were inspired to create their own musical experience after attending Coachella in 2012. “We camped out, did the whole experience,” says Modi. “It was so surreal. Music festivals are just a really interesting environment because everyone is just excited to spend the next few days with people. Music is a bonding experience, it brings people together. After seeing what that did, we said we need to bring this to DC. It started as a conversation.”
