The newly renovated Yard Park along the waterfront in Southeast will be the site of the inaugural DC Music Fest, a showcase for Capital Area musicians that will occur on May 7, 2011. The Fest will feature 12 bands, 3 singer/songwriters, and a DJ across two stages, with Billboard World Song contest winners Honor By August and experimental hip-hop collective Restoring Poetry in Motion confirmed as headliners.
The brainchild of Mark Chevalley and Ashely Estill, the event was conceived as a means by which to bring together diverse local artists and the fans of all ages who have supported them. All local artists interested in rounding out the bill are encouraged to contact the festival organizers.
