The All Things Go Fall Classic, produced by All Things Go, co-founded in 2011 by Adrian Maseda, Will Suter, Zack Friendly, and Stephen Vallimarescu, is a Washington D.C.-based annual outdoor music festival which started in 2014 at the back lots of Union Market. It expanded to the 15,000 capacity Yards Park at the Capitol Waterfront in 2016, and 20,000 capacity Merriweather Post Pavilion in 2021. The festival is cited for its support and inclusion of LGBT artists, and women-focused lineups. Queer singer, Betty Who, who started performing at the festival in 2017, said it's likely her favorite in the world. A 2015 Billboard article noted that it was one of the few events of its type within the city limits. Additionally, Variety said it's "one of the largest independent festivals on the East Coast," and Metro Weekly claimed it was "one of the cities leading music presenters."
CNN’s #GetPolitical campaign covered the festival in 2017 for how featured artists, Foster the People, Betty Who, and SABA, commented on the United States political news cycle under former president, Donald Trump. Young Thug was a headlining act. Its 2018 edition featured an all-women lineup, curated by Maggie Rogers and British singer, LPX (Lizzy Plapinger),, and headlined by Maggie Rogers, Billie Eilish, and Carly Rae Jepsen. This format was in direct response to a 2018 Pitchfork report stating that only 30% of artists booked at the top 20 music festivals were female. Lizzy Plapinger commented on how the festival was an opportunity to improve the gender imbalance. The Women’s March partnered on the event and facilitated a discussion around female inequality. The All Things Go Fall Classic continued to support women in music by dedicating a day to female performers in 2019. Female-focused nonprofit, She is the Music, was a supporting partner.
