RVA Music Fest

Two weeks from now, the first annual RVA Music Fest will be taking over Richmond with a two day music festival celebrating our city's amazing culture. On Saturday, September 10, a multitude of local and national acts will be playing all across the city at various bars and venues, including The Camel, Balliceaux, NY Deli and Strange Matter. Headlining the show on Sunday, September 11, will be Girl Talk and Best Coast (!!!). 18th Street will be closed off between Grace Street and Main Street to host the two large stages as RVA Music Fest takes over Shockoe Bottom from 2 pm to 10 pm. Tickets for Saturday's shows will be available at the various venues, but you can purchase advance tickets for Sunday's show here. In addition to Girl Talk and Best Coast, the two main stages will feature The Diamond Center, No BS Brass Band, Black Girls and more. There will also be a DJ tent all day on Sunday to keep your dancin' shoes happy.

I'm driving all the way back from a wedding in Maryland on Sunday just to make sure I see this show! Hope to see you there too!

Also, if you haven't already, be sure to check out RVA Mag, the driving force behind this incredible music festival and Richmond celebration. They have great articles, not to mention a pretty comprehensive list of what's going on in Richmond every weekend on their website.

Best Coast has been one of my favorites since early this year, so I am beyond excited and I'll definitely bring the camera! I'm really excited to see this event becoming a staple every year :)
