University of Maryland students are excited to see some of their favorite artists on the released setlist for All Things Go, a music festival that is to take place later this year on Oct. 1.
On April 11, the local festival’s Instagram announced headliners Lorde, Mitski and Bleachers, as well as smaller acts such as Lucy Dacus, King Princess, Hippo Campus and Peach Pit.
Junior chemistry and government and politics IR double major Samira Mudd first heard about the lineup from her friends.
“Like three people sent me the lineup as soon as it got released,” she said. “I was like ‘oh my god this is so sick.’”
Mudd had originally planned to see indie rock band Hippo Campus in concert earlier this year, but had to cancel after contracting Covid-19. She hopes to see Hippo Campus at All Things Go.
“I got covid right before the show, so when I saw them on the lineup I was so excited,” Mudd said. “I’ve been blown that I missed that concert, for probably a month and half now, and I was like ‘oh my god I can finally like, actually go and see them.’”
While Mudd hasn’t bought her tickets yet, she plans to do so before they sell out.
Junior immersive media design and English double major Cassiel Arcilla doesn’t have a ticket, but will be most excited to see the smaller act Michelle if she gets a ticket.
“If I were to go, I would be very excited to see Michelle ‘cause I love their songs,” they say.
Junior criminology and criminal justice major Alexander Alamar, who found out about the lineup from a friend, is most excited to see Bleachers perform.
“I’ve always just really liked their music, and I think that it'd be a really cool concert,” he said.
Alamar will be attending the one-day festival, and thinks the cost of tickets is well worth the splurge.
“I thought it was a thousand percent worth it,” he said. “Obviously they weren’t cheap… but I still thought it was worth it.”
Not all UMD students share similar feelings with Alamar on ticket prices. Sophomore public health science and Spanish double major Roman Kassaraba said he would only buy a ticket if they are sold at a discounted price.
“Honestly, I really would only buy it from someone… if they’re like trying to get rid of a ticket,” he said.
There are four categories of tickets on the All Things Go website with varying prices. The cheapest option is a GA Lawn ticket for $95.00 plus fees. At the moment, nearly all of the tickets are sold out, leaving only GA Lawn tickets up for grabs.
