Ardmore Music Hall
Philly Music Fest returns for its fifth annual music festival between October 6– 10, 2021.

Starting in May, the newly renovated Ardmore Music Hall will host a limited capacity concert series of 30 socially distanced seated shows to start out, featuring notable local and internationally recognizable artists like G. Love, Project Logic ft DJ Logic, John Medeski, MonoNeon, Vernon Reid & Daru Jones, Nick Perri & The Underground Thieves, Willie Nile, Donavon Frankenreiter, and many more.
