The first New York edition of the All Things Go festival will take place this fall, and its inaugural lineup is an embarrassment of riches. Chappell Roan, Janelle Monáe, and Reneé Rapp are among the headliners performing at this inclusive music festival.

All Things Go Festival prides itself on its “commitment to fostering diverse and inclusive spaces within the music community”, and its NYC lineup certainly reflects its core values. It mostly consists of female and non-binary performers, with an emphasis on LGBT+ artists.

This will mark the first edition of All Things Go taking place in New York, but it’s not the first one overall. It was initially held in Washington, D.C. before moving to Columbia, Maryland, and its past lineup included the likes of Billie Eilish, Boygenius, Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Mitski, Haim, Charli XCX, Lizzy McAlpine, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Tove Lo.

The New York edition of All Things Go will kick off with a bang on September 28, with Reneé Rapp, Chappell Roan, and Muna serving as headliners at the Forest Hills Stadium. The lineup on September 29 will be equally impressive, and it will include the likes of Janelle Monáe, Ethel Cain, and Julien Baker.
