Forget Lollapalooza, forget Coachella, forget Bonnaroo. The music festival you want to attend this year is Only About the Music’s “Artists for Autism.” It’s something special, unique. And yes, this year it is featuring ATO Recording Artist Bobby Long, where you will hear new songs from his sophomore album, "Wishbone." Also performing will be Tom Bertram, Miles Garber, Edward Hartline, Naseem Khuri, Shannon Labrie, Alex Starling, Surviving Allison, and Toy Soldiers. You will have the chance to not only see these artists from England and the U.S. perform live, but you will also have an opportunity to “give back.” This weekend is guaranteed to be filled with fun and friendship, while mingling with the artists. So, get ready for a life-changing weekend.
Held at the Auld Shebeen at 3971 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA 20030, the festival begins on November 2nd, at 2:00 p.m. and will continue through November 3rd. Only About the Music has stated that the purpose of the “Artists for Autism” music festival is to raise funds through the sale of tickets, merchandise and private support for Grafton Integrated Health Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching and enhancing the lives of children with Autism and their families. Tickets start at $150 for general admission and $250 for VIP. It is open to all ages.
