2019 East Coast music festivals roundup: Where to go, who to see

WASHINGTON — Sure, winter coats have not yet been banished to the back of the closet, but just think: The sultry days of enjoying music in an open field will soon return.

There’s no need to shell out a paycheck (or two) to fly across the country for Coachella. Hop on a bus or train, or plan a road trip to catch these East Coast music festivals. There’s even one festival right within the Capital Beltway, and another just a three-hour drive away.

As more festivals release their lineups, this list will be updated. (Who’s on that Woodstock 2019 lineup?)

In the meantime, check out these festivals for a quick weekend getaway.
