Intimacy makes a difference, at least in terms of music festivals. Sure, you could get lost in a sea of flesh-and-bone at mega-fests like Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza. But why travel across the country when there’s a festival in your DC-area backyard that’s just as compelling and considerably less expensive—not to mention exceptional food, and a venue that only holds 5,000 fans.
Enter: the fourth annual All Things Go Fall Classic, going down in DC October 6 through 8.
Brought to you and cultivated over the past three years by four local music bloggers turned concert curators—Adrian Maseda, Stephen Vallimarescu, Will Suter, and Zack Friendly—the music and food festival will combine more than 20 electronic, hip-hop, and alternative acts and a variety of food and drink vendors. Announced this morning, artist headliners for the 2017 lineup include Foster the People, Young Thug, and Galantis. Among many other artists further down the roster are Bleachers, The Knocks, and Cashmere Cat. Given the talent, the festival has expanded to a three-day experience instead of a one-day sprint. It’s set to make a return to Union Market, where it all began in 2014.
What to know:
Tickets are on sale as of this morning, with three-day passes starting at $154. Daily passes ($64) are available for those who don’t want to commit an entire weekend.
For Fall Classic veterans, expect updated amenities and additional VIP perks.
