Philly Music Fest goes virtual! Thursday 9/24 and Friday 9/25, stream performances from Philadelphia-based acts LIVE from the Ardmore Music Hall. Watch the streams below starting at 7pm!
Proceeds will be donated to Philadelphia-based music education programs and seed another round of Philly Music Fest grants for local musicians struggling due to COVID-19. Donate via Venmo: @PhillyMusicFest
The lineup features Japanese Breakfast, The Districts, Mt. Joy, Arnetta Johnson and SUNNY, Langhorne Slim, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and emerging artists Arthur Thomas and the Funkitorium and Zeek Burse. These artists represent the diversity of the Philadelphia music scene, drawing from rock, folk, hip hop, indie, jazz and funk.
Unlike other virtual music festivals that feature performances pre-recorded in living rooms and bedrooms, all of Philly Music Fest’s headlining and direct support sets will be performed live and the performances will be on a stage. Bands will perform at the Ardmore Music Hall, which is outfitted with a cutting-edge, four-camera HD audio and streaming video capability, powered by Nugs.net. In order to allow venue staff to sanitize the stage and replace microphones, stands, and cords, the festival will feature pre-recorded sets from emerging artists and messages from the charities that Philly Music Fest has supported in the past, which will be shown in-between the live sets.
