Playlist: Most Of The Bands Playing Fort Reno In 2015

By Ally Schweitzer


Update, July 1: The 2015 Fort Reno schedule has been posted.

Original post:

This summer’s edition of the Fort Reno concert series is not getting called off. After another round of uncertainty, organizer Amanda MacKaye announced Friday that the popular D.C. series — now in its 47th year — successfully fundraised the money it needs to pay for U.S. Park Police security at the shows. The first concert will take place Monday, July 6, with Sara Curtin, EastWestHwy and The Fuss.

MacKaye hasn’t made the 2015 schedule public yet, but she has posted a list of 20 bands confirmed for the slate. So in what is now a Bandwidth tradition, I made this playlist to help rock ‘n’ roll picnickers decide which Fort Reno shows to hit this year.

One problem, though: Not every band on the list has music on Soundcloud, my preferred playlist tool. Is your band booked for Fort Reno but absent from this playlist? Post a song on Soundcloud and email me a link at
