MUSIC HEADLINER: The Head and The Heart
Formed in Seattle by a group of Northwestern transplants, The Head & The Heart is an indie folk band whose influences include Americana, country-rock, and classic Beatlesque pop. They'll provide the perfect energy after Polo with their chart-topping, singalong hits and will also ramp down the evening to conclude the day. Some guests will stand and dance, some will roll out their blankets and enjoy their last bottle of rosé. Either way, there's something for everyone!
