All Things Go Fall Classic at Union Market: The Virgin Mobile FreeFest is no more. Sweetlife has shrunk dramatically. Trillectro is M.I.A. Landmark Festival was D.O.A. This festival-less landscape makes the annual All Things Go Fall Classic even more vital, so it’s promising that organizers have scaled up to a three-day event and traded last year’s sea of mud at Yards Park for the festival’s previous home at Union Market. Galantis, Young Thug and Foster the People top the 20-artist bill, but don’t miss the undercard acts, including Fletcher and Washington’s own Innanet James. Gates open at 4 p.m. Friday and at noon on Saturday and Sunday. $69-$250.

Pioneering DJ Rich Medina brings his collection of hip-hop, funk and house to a dance party in the Kennedy Center's atrium, where he'll be joined by the Marksmen for a set honoring the beginnings of hip-hop. 9 p.m. Free.
