Capitol Hill Block Party is just a few weeks away, and it's bringing with it sticky wristbands, expansive public joy, and three straight days of live music at five different stages in the center of Capitol Hill. You can find everything you could need to know about the festival on our Capitol Hill Block Party calendar, including links to listen to music from each of the nearly 100 bands, critics' picks, and the complete schedules for Friday, July 22, Saturday, July 23, and Sunday, July 24.

Prepare for music ranging from hometown lovers like Lisa Prank, Sángo, DoNormaal, and Nail Polish, to internationally renowned party-starters Chvrches, Crystal Castles, NAO, and Odesza. Make sure to stay hydrated and use the buddy system, because this is a party that legitimately does not stop for a straight 72 hours (we would know, we can see it from our office). But, despite the metric tons of human sweat that will undoubtedly be part of your experience, if you bookmark our calendar (and check back frequently for updates and new reviews from critics), we can guarantee that it will be much more enjoyable.
