Can you believe it? The Capitol Hill Block Party is celebrating its 21st anniversary this year! They're rolling out the first wave of this year's debaucherous celebration, and it's one to raise a toast to. The neighborhood streets will be closed down July 21st-23rd for Run The Jewels, Diplo, Lord Huron, and so many more.

“It’s an honor to have Run The Jewels and Diplo return to the festival, and we welcome Lord Huron for the first time,” said Capitol Hill Block Party Owner and Producer Jason Lajeunesse. “We are showcasing so many fantastic artists this year to ring in our 21st anniversary. Run The Jewels dropped an incredible record last month, and as a fan of Killer Mike’s political voice, he couldn’t be performing at a better time for our community.”

Here's a day-by-day look at the partial line-up, so far:

  • FRIDAY, JULY 21
  • Run The Jewels // Wolf Parade // Thundercat // Mura Masa // Austra // Nonane // Lucy Dacus // Cherry Glazerr // Kyle Craft // Flor
  • SATURDAY, JULY 22
  • Lord Huron // Jai Wolf // Whitney // Trip Turtle // Lizzo // Manatee Commune // Phantoms // MAGIC GIANT // Naked Giants // Zoolab // Saint Claire
  • SUNDAY, JULY 23
  • Diplo // Angel Olsen // Snakehips // Danny Brown // Perfume Genius // Mykki Blanco // Cloud Nothings // Torres // Julie Byrne // SLOUCHER

Single-day tickets and three-day passes for CHBP 2017 are available now beginning at $60 and $135, respectively, until inventory runs out. Once the initial early bird allotment of $135 three-day passes sell out, CHBP will offer a $150 tier of three-day passes. Tickets will be released in tiers as supplies last.
