This past weekend, the entire city was lit with events, so we decided to stay with that theme and thrown our own. The third installment of Burgers and Beats was definitely much anticipated, but thanks to our collab with Closed Sessions, Big Chief, GRVTY, Cali Burger, and all of our amazing hosts of the night, it turned into one of the best parties DC has ever seen! Dim the lights, lowkey turn a bar into a jungle, and add some of the coolest people in the city for the weekend and you have the formula for a perfect event.

Powered by New Balance, the entire night was sick. Beats curated by Venus X, Speakerfoxxx, Rex Riot, Basscamp, Mathias, Little Bacon Bear, Mistress Mambo, and a surprise performance by Infuzed and Venus's special guest; Asmara set the entire tone, and the room was filled with great vibes all night.  Big Chief turned into another world, for one night only.  

Each Burgers and Beats features hosts and influencers from across the city and beyond.  This time, we invited the House of Mynt, Smoking Zippers, Matt Green of District Running Collective, Michell Clark, Devin Lee, Trakgirl and many more to bring their style to the room and turn it up even harder.  Every event needs an MC on the mic, so Dre Soul High was on the mic keeping the crowd hype, and getting us right for each DJ's entrance. It was crazy!

The Cali Burgers were clutch. The GRVTY pop-up was perfection (by the way, you can order the GRVTY x MITD special edition collab T on our site). Even past hosts and influencers pulled up and popped out for a night of fun that no one wanted to end.

Hennypalooza's Low Key, Rory Farrell, one of our previous Burgers and Beats DJs Austin Millz, Photographer based out of New York Ravie B, Kate Ross, Dominick Adams, Ian iCan, Diego Downtown, and artist Russell Elliot, were just a few of our friends that stopped by to catch the wave and let's just say, the room was lit-- with smiles, laughing, and dancing the entire night. All good things must come to an end, and in true D.C. fashion, Mathias played go-go until the lights came up. But, if you thought the party was ending there? Nah. The entire room partied "like it was 1999" until we shut it down.  From MITD to you all, we thank you for an incredible night!

We think you liked it, We think we might do it again. Stay tuned
