The 29th annual Memorial Day weekend music festival is a destination for music lovers, featuring performances on four stages across six city blocks. Newcomers this year include the garage folk of Skribe, jazz by the U.S. Navy Band Commodores and the Howard Gospel Choir of Howard University. Sweet Leda returns with their blend of rock and soul music and Driven to Clarity brings their mix of funk, folk, rock and pop back to Rockville.

The main Beach Stage will once again have a Maryland flavor, with roots reggae from Baltimore’s Jah Works on Saturday and the “phat blues music” of Baltimore’s Kelly Bell Band joined by the original “Bad Boys of Bethesda,” The Nighthawks, on Sunday.
