Forward Festival: Flow

DJ night

Editorial Review

The annual Forward Festival showcases both top-flight and emerging electronic music artists, from the roughest face-melting dubstep and drum ‘n’ bass to ambient, soulful and jazzy soundscapes. (Check ForwardDC.com for more details.) Most major dance music venues are hosting at least one event, and other events are popping up in makeshift spaces, including city parks.
