It's another action-packed musical weekend in the DMV region, ranging from possibly the biggest and best outdoor festival of the season to an intimate show with a contemplative female artist.
Whether you're a fan of ska, pop, soul, folk or rock in its many shades, there's something for you to enjoy in the next three days, so make plans now.
Have a great musical weekend!
