DelFest

DelFest's late night lineup which has moved to an outdoor silent disco setting.

It’s outdoor late nights, folks! Each night, the featured act will perform under the stars at the Potomac Stage without a PA. All the music will be channeled through headphones. You purchase a ticket, and exchange it that night for a set of headphones that will allow you to enjoy the show! Return your headphones at the end each night for sanitization and charging!!
