Introducing the First Ever Landmark Music Festival

Are you ready to help make music history by being a part of the first ever Landmark Music Festival in Washington DC?

In partnership with the Trust for the National Mall, we’re hosting a world-class music festival to educate a new generation of fans about the National Mall’s history, ideals, and pressing restoration needs.

The two-day festival will take place on multiple stages in West Potomac Park, September 26-27, 2015, and feature more than 40 artists, including your favorites like Drake, The Strokes, alt-J, CHVRCHES, Ben Howard and more!

This inaugural festival will be a fun-filled platform to educate a new generation of Americans about the values, ideals and history of America’s Front Yard while also providing vital funds to meet the hundreds of millions of dollars in maintenance backlog currently facing our National Mall.

While most people think of the National Mall as they see it in movies – acres upon acres of pristine grounds dotted with perfectly polished granite memorials – the reality is much different. Did you know that The National Mall is the most visited national park in America? With over 29 million visits each year, you can imagine how the wear and tear is taking its toll on this treasured space.

By supporting our cause and enjoying this epic live music experience, you’re helping us to ensure this iconic park will remain standing for future generations!

The American story is told on the National Mall. We are glad that Landmark Festival will help launch a new collective effort among young people to appreciate and protect it.

—Karen Cucurullo, acting superintendent of the National Mall and Memorial Parks
