Philly F/M Festival kicks off next week

leave a comment »

The Philly Film/Music Festival is coming up next week(Sept 22-Sept 25)  and it’s playing host to some wonderful shows throughout the city. Some of the artists that will be playing are Sharon Van Etten, Marissa Nadler, Toy Soldiers, Nicos Gun, Creeping Weeds, Deadmau5, and many, many more.

You can either buy tickets to individual shows or buy a one-time badge that will get you into any show you’d like. That can be found HERE. BUT if you buy a badge through JUMP Magazine, you’ll get it for $30 cheaper. So I would highly recommend doing that.

Complete schedule and list of artists can be found below…

POPPED! Music Festival announces 2011 lineup

with one comment

Finally. Philadelphia has a legitimate, big time music festival to be proud of. Yes, The Roots Picnic brings in a notable lineup, but it lacks the festival atmosphere. Luckily for all of us, POPPED! Music Festival has stepped up to take over that role. The festival, which will take place at FDR Park on September 23rd-24th, will bring the likes of The Shins, Panda Bear, Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Cults, The Pains Of Being Pure at Heart, and many more, to the city. Tickets for the festival are available now and can be found HERE. (They’re a reasonable price, too!). Check out the lineup below.

Northside Festival 2011 lineup

leave a comment »

Here’s another music festival that was announced a while ago, but deserves some recognition. The Northside Festival takes place all over Brooklyn, NY from June 16-19. It features hundreds of bands spread out in various festivals. Kind of like Austin’s SXSW but not in TX. A few artists/bands that will be there are Beirut, Wavves, Sharon Van Etten, Sun Airway and more. Tickets/badges for the festival can be found HERE.

Camp Bisco 2011 lineup

with one comment

The lineup for Camp Bisco 2011 was announced a little while ago, but I felt the need to show some love to fellow my Philadelphians– The Disco Biscuit— who host the annual festival in Mariaville, NY. They’ll be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the festival with a pretty killer lineup. The band is known for their jam-band musical style, but it recent years have strayed away from that with a wide-range of artists. This year’s lineup includes Cut Copy, Wiz Khalifa, James Murphy, Yeasayer, and many more. Tickets for the festival that’s happening from July 7th-9th can be found HERE.

Alright, so, I’m a little late to this party, but I just had to put up a post about this festival. It’s THAT good and it’s right across the river so there’s no need to drive to Tennessee or fly out to Washington. WXPN will host their annual XPoNential Music Festival the weekend of July 22nd-24th at Wiggins Park on the Camden Waterfront. The line up includes Sun Airway, Ra Ra Riot, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Nicos Gun, Ben Folds and more. The complete line-up can be found below as well as videos from a few of the artists. If you live in Philly, there’s really no excuse not to go to this festival. Information about how to get tickets can be found HERE.
