The Herndon Festival might be canceled this year, but we can come together over social media to help spread the fun and joy people experience when they attend the Herndon Festival. The Festival was scheduled to be held May 28-31, so join us next week as we post ways for you to share and help celebrate. To get started, show us your Herndon Festival souvenir t-shirts, the older the better! It takes a whole community to put on a Herndon Festival and we challenge the following people who have worked on the event to show us their shirts, because we know you have them.

Can't wait to hear your new album! My wife and I bought your album during your amazing set Herndon Festival and love it! YOU ALL ROCK!!!
My grandkids at 2017 Herndon Festival. Hard to find a ride they both like; they both had fun with robotic cars, with Herndon HS Robotics team.
CGC Artist Profiles: Emma G
Q:Why did you decide to become a musician?
A: I was born with a super rare condition called hydrocephalus, which has resulted in me having 10 brain surgeries - and 24 surgeries in total. Music and songwriting helped me figure out a way to express myself, and actually help me process and understand my thoughts and feelings as I struggled through my s**t. That's how it all began... it just carried on being an incredibly helpful tool as I progressed through adolescence and into my teen and adult years as I tried to understand all the other heavy s**t I endured. But, you know, that's another story.

Q: What's been your favorite accomplishment / experience related to music?
A: Successfully touring the United States with my Band of Misfits: Joey J Drums and DJ Reality Check was pretty epic! 35 days - 16 cities ALL over the country. Also, I dunno... writing my first commissioned song that went on to be the theme song for an academy award-nominated documentary. Life is pretty weird.

Q: Tell me about your band and/or performance style?
A: I've always dabbled between playing solo and having a band. I used to be pop... then I became hard rock. Now I'm Goddess-rock; a combination of Amy Winehouse, Pink, Natalie Merchant and Sia. We basically brainwash you into believing in yourself.

Q: What's your mission as an artist?
A: Empowering people to be their own kind of superhero. We can save the world one song/hug/high five at a time!

Q: Tell me about your next project:
A: We're in the middle of our Together We Rise New Zealand tour at the moment! When we get home we're heading straight to the recording studio to start on my second album!

Q: What's the best and worst thing about being in the creative industries?
A: The best thing is that I'm 100% passionate about everything I do. If it's not a f**k yes, it's a f**k no, and most of the time it's a f**k yes. BUT it's also totally consuming and I forget to switch off sometimes, which isn't always a good thing!

Q: What is your wildly improbable goal?
A: To play Madison Square Garden, sell out stadiums, and collaborate with Eminem

Q: What's something you've achieved that you didn't think was possible?
A: Playing the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts was a little surreal! As well as Rockwood Music Hall, the Herndon Festival and Brew at the Zoo. I think the most surreal thought? Singing an original song (Together We Rise) at the Washington DC 4th of July parade.

Q: What's something that nobody knows about you?
A: Very few people know that I don't drink coffee... oh! And I can't roll my tongue.

Q: What's the weirdest / craziest / best experience you've had with a fan?
A: I've been gifted not one - but TWO beautiful guitars from two different fans. They're my practice guitars, and they make my heart happy
Our amazing team and mascot Joey at the Herndon Festival last weekend. Great turnout, and we got to meet some amazing fans!!! Thank you for stopping by.
We lost a pair of prescription glasses with case on Sunday at the festival. If found, please message me. We have already contacted the community center so they know to contact us if located. Thank you!!
That’s a wrap! We had so much fun hosting the Herndon Festival—we hope you were able to stop by and see us at our booth! Thank you to the fantastic Town of Herndon Parks and Recreation Department and Herndon Police for partnering with us for this fun event. Herndon Festival Herndon Police Department Herndon Parks and Recreation Department
We had a great weekend at the 39th Annual Herndon Festival!
Who do we talk to about getting Transit Vocal Band back next year, at a primo time slot? They were amazing and deserve a HUGE audience!
The Herndon Festival has shut down due to severe weather. ⛈
See you next year!
