Get ready for Landmark!


The first ever Landmark Music Festival will take place this weekend at West Potomac Park, on the National Mall just south of the Lincoln Memorial. The festival, occurring all day Saturday and Sunday, features Drake and The Strokes as headliners, with forty additional artists across five stages including Wale, Alt-J, and more.

In addition to the fantastic musical lineup, Landmark will have plenty of amenities aimed at improving the one’s music festival experience. These include the standard water bottle filling and phone charging stations, as well as numerous bars and a playground for kids! There is also a station, called Landmark Cashless, where you can sync a credit card to your festival wristband. When you get hungry you can head over to the DC Eats food court, with options ranging from Rocklands Barbeque to Ben’s Chili Bowl.

More than just the music and amenities, Landmark Music Festival is supporting a good cause by partnering with the Trust for the National Mall. This organization seeks to improve the National Mall through major renovations to the park that have not happened for the past 39 years. What better way to support one of D.C.’s most important areas than by rocking your face off?
