Janelle Monáe, Chappell Roan, MUNA and more to celebrate inclusion at first All Things Go New York festival

Janelle Monáe, Chappell Roan, MUNA and more have been announced as part of the inaugural New York edition of All Things Go Festival.

The festival, which has traditionally curated women-focused and LGBT+ inclusive lineups, will arrive to New York on September 28-29 at Forest Hills Stadium.

Though it’s normally hosted in Columbia, Maryland, All Things Go has since expanded outwards to other cities such as Washington, D.C..

Set to join Monáe, Roan and MUNA are Reneé Rapp, Ethel Cain, Towa Bird, Julien Baker, Holly Humberstone, Samia, Del Water Gap, Soccer Mommy, Mannequin Pussy, and more.

Previous headliners of All Things Go include LordeBleachersMitski, Billie EilishHAIMCharli XCXSt VincentMaggie Rogers, and CHVRCHES.

It was recently announced that MUNA’s Naomi McPherson was to make their acting debut as Janis Ian on ‘SNL 1975’.

The film centres around the first episode of Saturday Night Live, which aired in October 1975, focusing in particular on the behind-the-scenes moments before it first came to the small screen. Ian appeared on the show as one of its first musical guests, alongside Billy Preston, who will be portrayed in the film by Jon Batiste. Batiste is also set to work on the film’s score.

Meanwhile, NME caught Chappell Roan at her Governor’s Ball NYC 2024 performance on June 7-9, giving the festival overall five stars: “At the main stage, Miss Chappell Roan arrived in full Lady Liberty gear – or as she said “in drag of the biggest queen of all”. It appeared that every single one of this year’s festival goers was ready for this set and in the pit, so much so that drone footage showed the massive crowd in an Instagram post later that day.

“The pop star – who quickly changed from Lady Liberty into a yellow cab car – treated the swarm of fans to an unreleased song titled ‘Subway’. Roan also revealed that she had turned down an invitation to perform at the White House for Pride and said: “We want liberty, justice and freedom for all. When you do that, that’s when I’ll come.””

Janelle Monáe has also opened up about feeling “othered” early on in her career in a revealing new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Monáe is soon due to headline the first-ever I Made Rock ‘N’ Roll Festival, which will take place this Saturday (May 18) at the American Legion Mall in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she recalled releasing her 2007 ‘Metropolis: The Chase Suite’ EP – the first instalment in her “science fiction odyssey” – saying she had a “smaller” audience that “got her,” but kept wondering how her music would “translate to everybody”.

“I did go through a moment during that time where I felt super othered and like I had to cut off certain parts of me because people won’t understand it,” she said. “I think that that’s been proven wrong. I think that there [are] a lot of people that get the frequency.”

Monáe continued: “Music is just about a feeling and people gravitate towards the feeling. You can say, ‘I’m going to do a jazz album’ or ‘I’m going to do this or that,’ but if the feeling’s not there, I don’t think people will talk about it. If you can capture a feeling and an honesty and a frequency that people want to make their soundtrack, then you’ve got a hit, you’ve got something special.”

In other news, Chappell Roan has debuted new song ‘Subway’ at Governors Ball and revealed she turned down a Pride performance at the White House.
