Washington DC’s signature fall music festival returns once again to Union Market for two days of indie music (Saturday, October 6th and Sunday, October 7th).
Saturday consists of an all-female lineup. This is part of the festival’s aim to highlight
innovative women in music and business. Maggie Rogers, the folk/R&B phenom belting emotion-twinged songs, co-headlines Saturday. She’s coming off her recently released single Give A Little (July 27th). Rogers is sharing the limelight with global pop phenom, Billie Eilish, who’s finishing up a full run of the festival circuit this summer. Her melancholy pop hits, including “idontwannabeyouanymore” and collaborations with hot artists such as Khalid have contributed to her meteoric ascendence into the zenith of pop consciousness, garnering an astounding 16.67 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Eilish’s young age (16) belies a strong stage presence and quirky, distinctive personality. Jessie Reyez, Rayvn Lenae, LPX, Alma, Oshun and Kaye fill the remainder of the lineup.
BØRNS and Carly Rae Jepsen co-headline Sunday’s festivities. BØRNS, the Michigan-born indie pop artist is coming off the release of his 2018 album Blue Madonna. The sophomore album includes hits featured in Fifa, such as Faded Heart, and collaborations with Lana Del Ray for God Save Our Young Blood. Following a brief stint on television and on stage, Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen returns back to concert performances with a US and Canadian tour, culminating in the All Things Go performance. Australian born indie pop artist Betty Who returns to the Union Market stage as a sub-headliner, along with Two Feet, The Aces, Cautious Clay, SNNY and Footsxcoles.
New this year, the All Things Go team hosts Classic Conversations at the Eaton Hotel from 5-8pm on Friday, October 5th. Self described as a “a multi-session event featuring conversations with innovative women in music & business,” the event is divided into a Women x Music and Women x Entrepreneurship session. In the first session, come hear from headliner Maggie Rogers, Lizzy Plapinger, curator of Saturday’s lineup, music executives and VICE News reporter Gaby Wilson. In the second session, hear from the Women’s March President, The Lemon Collective Founder, and many more female entrepreneurs making waves in the industry. It is a free event and RSVP’s are required.
