D.C. Festival News: Trillectro Is Coming, In It Together Fest Announces More Bands

By Ally Schweitzer


This post has been updated with more information from Trillectro co-organizer Modi Oyewole.

This summer will bring the second edition of In It Together Fest and the fourth annual Trillectro, two music festivals that take aim at the D.C. region’s seemingly inexhaustible supply of 20-somethings.

In It Together Fest — the punk-skewing festival that plans to take over mostly DIY venues from July 30 to Aug. 2 — announced the latest updates to its already beefy schedule last week, including performances from locals Paint Branch, Teen Mom, Shark Week and Mattress Financial. In It Together Fest hosts its main showcase at Columbia Heights church St. Stephen’s on Aug. 1, featuring Philadelphia’s Cayetana and Baton Rouge heavies Thou.

Organizers of trendy hip-hop and electronic event Trillectro, meanwhile, dropped their own news today: a date for the 2015 concert. Trillectro will take place Aug. 29 this year, according to the fest’s social-media accounts. No word on what venue or acts can be expected. (Co-organizer Modi Oyewole says venue information is coming this week.)

By this time last year, Trillectro had already announced its schedule for the 2014 event, which took place on RFK Stadium’s festival grounds.

More updates are forthcoming from In It Together Fest, which is also planning a 30th anniversary celebration for punk-rock activist group Positive Force, scheduled for Aug. 2 at St. Stephen’s.
