Another DC arts festival is being inaugurated at the Yards Park
-- this time it's the DC Music Fest
, scheduled for May 7, 2011. With plans to "showcase some of the best artists and bands of the Washington, DC and surrounding areas," the event already has a lineup of 12 bands, three singer/songwriters, and 1 DJ on two stages. Other local artists who want to play at the event can submit themselves
at the web site until February 1, and a panel of judges will choose which acts will be added to the lineup.
According to On Tap
, tickets will be $25.
Back in October, the first RiverFrontFest
debuted on the streets just north of the Yards Park, offering a day of local art and music.
