LIVE REVIEW: Landmark Music Festival 2015
The inaugural Landmark Music Festival took place just next to the gorgeous Potomac River in the middle of Washington DC.
Tucked in between the FDR Memorial and the Potomac River, the inaugural Landmark Music Festival took place for two days during the last weekend of September. With headliners Drake, The Strokes, and Alt-J, the park was populated with concert goers from all over the East Coast.
From the company that brings Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza to life, the weekend was well-organized with staff and security welcoming guests with open arms. With a nonprofit setup and organized to power behind this music festival, ten percent of the proceeds went to Trust for the National Mall, benefiting to the repair of the National Mall right next to the gorgeous venue.
Perhaps it was the weather, time of the year, or the relaxing city, but many of the guests seem to be much more relaxed than what you would expect at a typical summer music festival. Listening to Daughter while reading a book, and taking a nap beside the Potomac River were just the few activities concert goers did during the weekend. However, the highlight of the weekend was none other than The Strokes.
The festival ended on a high note—performing a couple rare songs such as “Killing Lies” and “You’re So Right,” and even announcing their future plans to go back to the studio. There was no doubt guests could not have had a better closer to the inaugural Landmark Music Festival.
Here’s some photographic highlights:
