merryland festAll Good Presents launches new festival, bringing celebrated live performers to one of the nation’s most beautiful and legendary amphitheaters.   

From the organizers who produced the All Good Festival for two decades, All Good Presents is proud to announce the first-ever Merryland Music Fest. Held July 9 and 10 at the historic Merriweather Post Pavilion — centrally located between Baltimore and Washington DC — the weekend includes 21 acts, over 20 hours of music, an expanded Merriweather footprint, unique artisans, crowd performers, Kick-Off and Late-Night concerts and more.  

Bringing together a lineup that highlights some of the most talented live musicians performing today, the inaugural Merryland Music Fest features:

  • The String Cheese Incident (Two Sets)
  • Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals
  • Grace Potter
  • Lotus
  • Stephen “Ragga” Marley
  • Greensky Bluegrass
  • Shakey Graves

Performing on two stages, acts alternate between the main stage and the Believe in Music Stage. Merryland is partnering with Believe in Music, a Baltimore-based non-profit started by Kenny Liner from The Bridge, focused on helping promote self-expression and community awareness through music education in underprivileged communities.

Additionally, the Merryland experience features an expanded footprint including a second stage, an interactive space within Symphony Woods (a 40 acre wooded preserve), unique local artisans, philanthropic groups, and crowd performers.

Taking full advantage of Merryland Music Fest’s urban surroundings, attendees can add on their choice of Kick-Off Concerts on Friday, July 8: Papadosio with ELM at Ram’s Head Live in Baltimore, or Soul Rebels with People’s Blues of Richmond at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C.

Furthermore, fans can add on the Late-Night Concert hosted by Kung Fu with guest appearances by Karl Denson and more taking place Saturday, July 9 at Rams Head Live. Tickets to the Kick Off & Late Night concerts are available to the general public without having to purchase a Merryland Music Festival ticket.

For more than 40 years, Merriweather Post Pavilion has hosted a diverse range of artists including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead, and continues to offer the absolute best in contemporary entertainment.
