DC’s HFStival Back After 13 Years

unnamed (92)

Washington, DC’s HFStival was a staple of the summer for rock fans in our nation’s capital in the 1990s and early 2000s. Now the Washington Nationals and I.M.P. are bringing it back.

The fest is returning after 13 years, scheduled for September 21 at Nationals Park. The lineup features The Postal Service performing Give Up, Death Cab For Cutie performing Transatlanticism, Incubus, Bush, Garbage, Jimmy Eat World, Girl Talk, Violent Femmes, Tonic, Filter and Lit.

“Quintessential HFStival acts have been doing an unprecedented business, selling more tickets than they ever came close to back in the day, so it all made sense to bring back the HFStival,” said Seth Hurwitz, owner of I.M.P., the 9:30 Club, The Anthem, and The Atlantis and operator of Merriweather Post Pavilion and Lincoln Theatre.

HFStival will use a lottery system, which is open now through 11:59 p.m. June 16. Those entering the lottery will be made aware if their ticket order will be fulfilled by June 21. To register for the lottery, click here.
