Calling all music lovers – this weekend is packed with events for you. Whether your scene is at a concert venue or an informal street festival, you can sing and dance your heart out Friday through Sunday at these venues.
Bruno Mars: 24k Magic Tour
Join thousands of fans in welcoming Bruno Mars, the artist behind the 2010 hit “Grenade” and 2012 hit “Locked Out Of Heaven.” With seven No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, this acclaimed pop star will steal the show with his upbeat vibe and renowned dance moves. An up-and-coming artist, Dua Lipa, will accompany him on stage. You may recognize the name from her single “New Rules,” which was released on her first album this summer. Fusing pop and R&B together, Lipa encompasses an Alessia Cara or Zara Larsson style, with a sassy “girl power” attitude.
Capital One Arena, 601 F St. NW. Doors open at 8 p.m. Remaining tickets start at $159.
Rhode Island Avenue Main Street Fall Fest
Kick off the beginning of autumn and enjoy a festival filled with food, shopping and performances. Over forty vendors will have booths at this year’s Rhode Island Avenue Main Street Fall Fest, featuring a variety of books, clothing, handmade jewelry, crafts and food for sale. At least two dance groups, District Dance Arts and Elements Dance Collective, will be showcasing their talent and Eli Lev, an indie folk singer, and JDVBBS, a DJ, singer and songwriter, will also be performing.
Rhode Island Avenue NE Main Street. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free.
After One Direction decided to split up to go in their own directions in 2015, many fans were heartbroken. But for all of the Directioners still out there, Harry Styles will be performing in the District Sunday. At this performance, you’ll likely hear his breakaway hit songs from his first solo album like “Sign of the Times,” “Carolina” and “Sweet Creature.” Accompanying him will be Muna, an all female electronic pop group. After meeting in 2013 at a party at the University of Southern California, the trio released several singles and their first full album this year. The concert will bring in middle schoolers and college students alike, so prepare for some major 1D fangirling.
DAR Constitution Hall. 1776 D St. NW. Doors open at 8 p.m. Remaining tickets start at $250.
