The 2021 All Things Go Music Festival returns on Saturday October 16th and makes a major move to the 20,000 capacity Merriweather Post Pavilion venue. The festival continues their female-forward billing with this year’s headliner and Grammy Album Of The Year nominee, HAIM – in addition to St. Vincent , Charli XCX and LAUV at the top of the bill.
Those artists will be joined by a slew of up-and-coming artists — Girl In Red, Cautious Clay, Beach Bunny, Soccer Mommy, Gus Dapperton, Tkay Maidza, Jelani Aryeh, Role Model, Tai Verdes, Blue DeTiger, Isaac Dunbar and Del Water Gap — all taking over two stages at the iconic Merriweather Post Pavilion, making it one of the largest independent festival on the east coast. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at https://www.allthingsgofestival.com/
For the third consecutive year, the festival will also host a conference and panel discussion as part of its programming, featuring some of the most notable voices in music, entertainment and journalism. The conference will be free to enter with RSVP – more details will be announced later this summer. Previous panel programming has included festival artists Maggie Rogers and mxmtoon in addition to Puja Patel, editor-in-chief of Pitchfork Music and many others.
The earlier festival installments were held at Union Market, with headliners such as Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers, CHVRCHES, Carly Rae Jepsen, Foster the People, Kygo, Sylvan Esso, Vince Staples, Bleachers, Future Islands, Tove Lo, Young Thug, Empire of The Sun and Passion Pit alongside culinary partners such as James Beard Award-nominated chef Erik Bruner Yang, Shake Shack and Jose Andres’ Beefsteak.
The festival is known for their female-focused billing and equal representation in the music industry in general, for instance the Saturday of All Things Go 2018 spotlighted an all-female lineup specially curated in collaboration with Maggie Rogers and LPX (Lizzy Plapinger), both All Things Go friends, and Plapinger, a previous partner on the All Things Gold club nights in Washington DC.
