Playlist: Listen to Music From All the Acts Performing at DCMD’s Sounds of the City Festival


Next month, we’re stoked to present our first festival, Sounds of the City. It’ll be a four-day, jam-packed event filled with panel discussions, workshops, interactive exhibits, expos and, of course, live music.

The bands we’ve chosen to play Sounds of the City festival represent the best of D.C. They’re innovators and vanguards within the city’s music scene, unafraid to experiment and forge their own path to push musical boundaries. Sounds of the City is where these artists, who come from all different backgrounds and walks of life, will come together for a one-of-a-kind celebration of solidarity and unity.
