All Things Go Fall Classic happened and all things went pretty well
Friday, Oct. 6-8, Union Market in Washington D.C. became the area that hosted All Things Go Fall Classic. The Fall Classic brought many performances and plenty food to try from the District of Columbia.
Young Thug, Foster the People, Vince Staples, Galantis and more held it down for the 3-day festival. More than 10,000 people were drawn into the “iconic” culinary and food district. Merging taste buds with music taste was a great idea.
The music and food festival was started in 2014 by Will Suter, Adrian Maseda, Stephen Vallimarescu and Zack Friendly. Taking their blog from the internet to the streets provided festival goers with an experience to remember.
“We’re proud that we were able to go bigger and better with this year’s Fall Classic, and we think fans feel the same way,” says ATG co-founder Suter. “This was our first year transforming the festival into a three-day event to highlight different music genres. We gave folks the opportunity to catch their favorite artists in an intimate venue, while also experiencing the absolute best of D.C.’s food scene. It felt good to create something so special in our hometown.”
On Friday, festival goers were entertained by DJ duo Win and Woo, Bearson, JackLNDN and The Knocks before Galantis closed out the night as the headliner.
Saturday brought us more acts, beginning with Innanet James, IDK, Kweku Collins and Saba. Vince Staples, Cashmere Cat and Young Thug brought in the night time energy with electrifying performances. Although Thug did show up over an hour late, the energy and patience proved to be all-too sustainable past midnight.
Both Innanet James and IDK are natives of the DMV area and D.C. was represented well by the two.
On Sunday, Now Now, Foreign Air, Betty Who and Bleachers closed out the festival before Grammy nominated Foster of the People hit the stage. Earlier in the day, Pop artist Fletcher paid tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas massacre.
Aside from the performances, as previously mentioned, the food was worth the go too. Maketto, Milk Cult, DGS, BBQ Bus, Buredo, &Pizza, Takorean and Sweetgreen ensured that everyone enjoyed a taste of D.C.
