After a year off due to COVID-19 lockdowns, the Firefly Festival returns to Dover, Delaware, this weekend. This festival is an easy drive from DC, Maryland, and Virginia, so take a road trip to see headliners Billie Eilish (Thursday), The Killers (Friday), Tame Impala (Saturday), and Lizzo (Sunday)!
Catch the action at The Woodlands from Thursday, Sept. 23, through Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021.

Editor’s Note: This year, we asked our bloggers to name their Top 10 shows of 2019 or choose their Top 10 photos of the year. We will run them over the course of mid-December as our Best of the Year posts.
Choosing my favorite photos is always a difficult task. I narrowed it down to shows I shot specifically for Parklife for this blog post.

An estimated 800,000 activists marched to call for gun control laws in DC Saturday, and quite a few turned out the previous night to flood The Anthem with a night of music and messages with Stay Amped: A Concert to End Gun Violence, in a concert presented by IMP on Friday. The artists performing at The Anthem proved as diverse as those young activists.
