T-Minus Six Months for D.C. Music Festival


D.C. continues to try to get more entertaining. Ballpark, cupcakes, food trucks... yeah, the past few years have been kind to this town. Next up: the D.C. Music Festival, slated for May 7, 2011 in the new Yards Park.

Yeah, May 7. These people really know how to plan ahead.

Headliners include alt-pop group Honor By August and experimental hip-hop band Restoring Poetry in Music. Fest planners want to profile great local artists and bands, and are looking for more acts here. They're aiming for 12 bands, three singer/songwriters "and one of D.C.'s hottest DJs." (Who?!) Local restos and breweries are also expected to be on-site.

Tix are $25 in advance or $30 the day of the event. Just something for you people to keep in mind. You know, for when you get around to buying a 2011 calendar.
