The All Things Go Fall Classic is Washington D.C.-based annual outdoor music festival which started in 2014 at the back lots of Union Market with headliners Future Islands and Tove Lo.[1] The festival features diverse lineups, including its 2018 all female festival. It is produced by All Things Go, co-founded in 2011 by Adrian Maseda, Will Suter, Zack Friendly, and Stephen Vallimarescu.[2]

In 2015, it was headlined by Norwegian DJ, Kygo alongside The Knocks, Penguin Prison, Niykee Heaton, Powers, Chelsea Lankes, Tigertown and The Walking Sticks.[1]

Following up in 2016, the festival featured Empire of the Sun, Passion Pit, Sylvan Esso, and Christine and the Queens at the 15,000 capacity venue, Yards Park at the Capitol Riverfront.[3]

The 4th All Things Go Fall Classic in 2017 was headlined by Galantis, Young Thug, and Foster the People. It was covered by CNN's #GetPolitical campaign for how featured artists commented on the United States political news cycle under former president, Donald Trump.[4] In addition to the headliners, there were performances from SABA, Betty Who [5], Vince Staples, Bleachers, and Cashmere Cat.[6]

For its 5th edition in 2018, the All Things Go Fall Classic festival featured an all-female lineup, curated by Maggie Rogers[7] and British singer, LPX (Lizzy Plapinger),[8] and headlined by Maggie Rogers, Billie Eilish, and Carly Rae Jepsen. Lizzy Plapinger commented on how the festival was an opportunity to improve gender inequality.[8] Other artists featured at the festival included Jessie Reyez, Betty Who, and The Aces.[9] The festival’s lineup decision was in response to a 2018 Pitchfork report stating that only 30% of artists booked at the top 20 music festivals were female.[10] The Women’s March was a partner of the 2018 All Things Go Fall Classic [9], where the festival’s organisers hosted a panel with Lizzy Plapinger, Maggie Rogers, Tamika D. Mallory (The Women’s March co-founder), Caroline Phillips (National Cannabis Festival founder), and Gaby Wilson (Vice News Tonight correspondent).[8]

In 2019, the All Things Go Fall Classic continued by devoting one day of music to female performers, which was headlined by Chvrches and Melanie Martinez, and supported by LANY, Betty Who, COIN, MUNA, Allie X, nxtmoon, Nasty Cherry, and Carlie Hanson. Female-focused nonprofit, She is the Music, was a supporting partner.[11]
