Early last month Capitol Hill Block Party announced its headliners, which includes little-known and totally under-the-radar talent like Run the Jewels, Diplo, Angel Olsen, and Lord Huron. But a handful of performances does not a festival make. Today, we got the full scoop on who is playing, and when, during the three-day donnybrook.
With the marquee names up top (a step up from where some of the local festivals left wanting), and a fairly respectable local showing—including previously unannounced acts like Haunted Horses, Kung Foo Grip, Mommy Long Legs, and Bad Future—this year's Block Party really anchors summer in the city.
