Earlier this summer All Things Go announced the music festival would be held on Saturday, October 16th at the 20,000 capacity Merriweather Post Pavilion venue - quadrupling in size from Union Market. The festival continues its 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 festivals on the east coast.

For the third consecutive year, the festival will also host a conference and panel discussion as part of its programming, featuring notable voices in music, entertainment and journalism. The conference is free to enter with RSVP. Previous panel programming has included festival artists Maggie Rogers and mxmtoon 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 its 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.
