All Things Go Fall Classic Returns October 8th

From our friends at the All Things Go Fall Classic...

Empire of the Sun and Passion Pit to Headline Third Annual All Things Go Fall Classic Music Festival in Washington, DC, October 8

Following a sold-out 2015 festival, this year's event moves to Yards Park at the Capitol Riverfront

Empire of the Sun, Passion Pit, Sylvan Esso, and Christine and the Queens will top the 2016 All Things Go Fall Classic bill at Yards Park at the Capitol Riverfront on Saturday, October 8. The tastemaker festival will also see performances from a number of rising stars, including Bishop Briggs, POP ETC, Sofi Tukker, and DC’s own Ace Cosgrove.

In addition to the music lineup, fans will be offered a curated selection of food options, including Shake Shack, Beefsteak, Buredo, Takorean, Timber Pizza Co. and more.
