The Philadelphia region has a notorious craft brewing culture, both established and emerging. As with Music and Food, the Philly Music Fest will feature ONLY local craft breweries. Our premiere local craft breweries will take over all 20 taps at the venue’s three stationary bars, and satellite bars will be set up around the venue, featuring additional tap lines pouring only local beer, as well as serving cans and bottles.
It is critical for all of us to support the breweries that have graciously decided to support our music scene, and the Philly Music Fest’s non-profit mission. Leading up to the Festival and thereafter, please support our craft brewing scene by purchasing beer and frequenting the taprooms of the following breweries that prioritize music, arts and community in Philadelphia:
Of music, art, beer and food created in Philadelphia, food is quite possibly the most developed and renowned aspect of our community. Accordingly, the Festival will feature food created by local chefs. On each of Friday and Saturday, food trucks will be located outside World Café Live (on 31st Street). So, please come hungry on Friday and hit up the food trucks for a late lunch and dinner on Saturday.
Additionally, James Beard Award Winning Chef, Michael Solomonov, and his amazing teams from Federal Donuts, Dizengoff and Goldie have graciously agreed to support the Festival. Michael and his team will curate a special menu for the VIP ticketholders each of Friday and Saturday. The cost of the food is included in the VIP ticket price.
Federal Donuts will also provide treats to everyone through the construction of a “Donut Wall” inside the venue. If you haven’t seen their “Donut Wall” yet, you are in for an experience. Because the folks at Federal Donuts are so incredibly sweet, the donuts will be complimentary to all ticketholders (at least, while they last).
The people at Federal Donuts, Dizengoff and Goldie are really, really terrific citizens of Philadelphia. They genuinely care about us. Please support their restaurants as they are supporting us.
The Philadelphia Music & Arts Festival is a non-profit endeavor – founded, produced and curated by Greg Seltzer. Our mission is to encourage the citizens of Philadelphia to SUPPORT YOUR SCENE. The Festival is both a testament and celebration of the exploding music scene in Philadelphia and a showcase of up and coming artists. Two Nights. Two Stages. Only Philly Bands.
In addition to music, the Festival will highlight the food, beer and arts of Philadelphia. Food trucks and local chefs will provide edibles, while all beer taps will be pouring only local craft beer. Local distilleries will handle cocktails. Local artists will display visual arts. The experience is an immersion in Philadelphia culture.
The Philadelphia music scene is eclectic and blossoming, yet under-appreciated. The Philadelphia craft beer scene is burgeoning, yet deserving of more credit. The Philadelphia food scene is notorious, but behind in terms of national attention. It is time for Philadelphians to SUPPORT YOUR SCENE. The music will bring our community together, but the objective is – whatever your passion may be – SUPPORT YOUR SCENE.
Business and commerce is most certainly an important part of our Scene. The coexistence of business and the arts is critical. In the spirit of community and a passion for the City of Philadelphia, the following Philadelphia organizations and people have graciously supported The Philadelphia Music & Arts Festival with a monetary donation. We all should thank them and, where possible, support their products and services.
