Thievery Corporation, Gogol Bordello to Play the Fairgrounds
International recording artists and local boys Thievery Corporation will headline an all-day music event at The Fairgrounds in DC on Saturday Sept. 15. Joining the full Thievery Corporation live band for their own sets will be special guests Gogol Bordello and Michael Franti & Spearhead.
“Gogol and Franti are artists we’re really excited to play with,” Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation said. “We’ve seen both bands at different festivals over the years, but it will be great to share a stage in DC and bring all this great music to our home town.”
The Fairgrounds, located at 1299 Half Street, SE, immediately adjacent to Nationals Stadium, has hosted “The Bullpen” for Nationals games, and a number of other unique outdoor events like Truckeroo. This will be the first full-day concert featuring the main stage, a side stage of DJs and local artists as well as food trucks, vendors and artist installations throughout the venue.
