If A Music Festival Weren't Enough, All Things Go Announce Panels Featuring Top Female Journalists
Betty Who, Nasty Cherry, CHVRCHES, and Melanie Martinez aren’t the only ones who are coming to Washington DC this October. All Things Go just announced that in addition to their annual music festival, they will also host two extraordinary panels featuring some of the top female journalists in the industry today.
In addition to the groundbreaking artists who are making a dominant impact on today’s culture, the most distinguished women in editorial and entertainment will swiftly gather at DC’s Eaton Hotel on Friday, October 11 at 7 PM to discuss today’s most pressing topics. This will be the second year in a row that All Things Go will put an imperative spotlight on the top names in media.
Puja Patel, Pitchfork’s editor-in-chief, is set to moderate an intimate and thought-provoking discussion about being a woman in the music industry. Titled as “Women x Music,” the panel will feature a variety of guests including Atlantic Records marketing director Caiti Green, NPR music editor Sidney Madden, and mxmtoon—who will also be performing at this year’s All Things Go Fall Classic.
The second panel is named “Women x Storytelling,” and will feature National Geographic Explorer’s writer and photojournalist Laurel Chor leading a significant discussion about the panelists’ experiences in their careers so far. Kate Bennett, CNN White House and FLOTUS correspondent, will be a highlighted panelist, alongside the Washington Post’s Stephanie Williams.
Last year, Billboard’s senior editor Lyndsey Havens and artist Maggie Rogers made appearances at the inaugural All Things Go panel, highlighting their prodigious expeditions through the ever-changing and unconventional music business. Vice News Tonight’s Gaby Wilson was the moderator which also featured the festival’s co-curators.
In a heartfelt partnership, ATG’s Fall Classic festival also announced that they are collaborating with Lyft for this year’s panels. For every ride taken to or from the panels and the festival, the prominent rideshare company will donate $1 to She Is The Music, a daring campaign that focuses on inclusion in the music industry.
The panels are open-to-the-public, and are free to enter with an RSVP. You can find out more information about the All Things Go "Classic Conversations" by visiting their website.
