The announcement of this summer's lineup comes much later than in previous years. Avid fans worried after Fort Reno's account disappeared from Twitter and Facebook, but organizer Amanda MacKaye told The Washington Post, "We just don’t feel the need to use Facebook and Twitter anymore, period."
As of Friday morning, Fort Reno's official website was down.
All shows are free and appropriate for music lovers of all ages. Pets are welcome but no alcohol is allowed.
Fort Reno Park is located at Chesapeake and Nebraska Streets NW; you can walk from Tenleytown-AU and Van Ness-UDC Metro stations on the Red Line.
