Of all the music festivals I’ve read and written about heading into the summer thus far, post-pandemic, the 2021 All Things Go Music Festival is the one I am most pumped about.
While I realize I won’t be able to head out to Columbia, Maryland, the weekend of October 16th, I wholeheartedly encourage all of you to try and make the trip (if you’re vaccinated). This year’s festival will be held at the 20,000 capacity Merriweather Post Pavilion venue. 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.
Who will be playing at the All Things Go Music Festival?
Yes, I love that this festival has some strong female-lead artists, but I really think there is a great balance. Folks who can make it out for the event will hear from 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.
My Favorites on the Lineup
Haim and Lauv are probably two of my most played artists on my Spotify playlist. Haim, a word that means “life” in Hebrew, is an American pop rock band from Los Angeles. The band consists of three sisters: Este (bass guitar and vocals), Danielle (lead vocals, guitar, and drums), and Alana (guitars, keyboards, and vocals). The sisters have been playing music together actively since 2007. Lauv is newer to the industry and is not an artist who identifies as a female, but I love him because his music resonates with me on so many levels. I think this is likely due to him being so open about his battle with
mental brain health. He started his career in music back in 2015.
