CAPITAL HOUSE MUSIC FESTIVAL IS AN ALL-AGES, FREE EVENT. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO BRING YOUR YOUTH TO TEACH THEM WELL, TO FEEL THE VIBE, FEEL THE BASS AND BE HOUSED. HOWEVER VIP AREAS ARE 21+ ONLY.

YES! This event is free, however, we are raising funds for our charity and it is pretty costly to put on an event of this scale. The tickets are free on Eventbrite. We kindly ask you to click the “donate whatever you like” and make a donation at check out to support our mission. We are donating 50% of all donations directly to Living Classrooms in an effort to fund a music production studio with instruments for the disadvantaged youth in the D.C. Metro Area.

Can I help your mission without donating?

Absolutely! We're looking for reliable volunteers; we need medics (nurses) and staff to help set up and manage both of our 2020 events. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help, fill out the form on our contact page! (Link to Contact Page). Of course, all volunteers will receive cool swag!

Is the event canceled due to bad weather?

We have scheduled rain dates for each event. The Memorial Day weekend rain date will be May 30th and the Labor Day weekend rain date will be September 12th. It rained a little last year and we partied harder! Ask anyone that was there? It was epic!

We have a 50/50 lineup of female/male performers! For specifics on our performers, check out our lineup page.
