From October 10 – 15, 2022Philly Music Fest will be returning for six nights, at six venues, with twenty-one artists, all of whom consider Philadelphia home. The Fest is a non-profit organization founded by a local husband and wife team, Greg and Jenn Seltzer, and has donated more than $275,000.00 to local musical education programs and artists in need, after paying all venues and artists to perform at the festival. 

PMF features genres such as Jazz, Rock, Hip Hop, Punk, Bluegrass, Folk, Spoken Word and Americana artists, supporting their slogan, “Our genre is Philly.” Tickets for all seven shows of Philly Music Fest’s are currently on sale and the Fest has sold out for the last three years. Tickets can be purchased via the festival’s official website or via the venue websites including World Café LiveJohnny Brenda’sArdmore Music Hall, MilkBoyREC Philly and Underground Arts.

This year’s event will host national headliners and also emerging, up and coming bands from Philadelphia.

Low Cut Connie’s Adam Weiner says:

It’s really cool to see how Philly Music Fest has grown. They are doing great work and I hope it continues. Music education gives kids a lifeline that they can cling to throughout their lives, and I am very happy to be participating in this festival and echo its mission.

Founder, curator and producer, Greg Seltzer adds:

Each year, Philly Music Fest presents a diverse lineup of artists from across the Philadelphia-region, mining and purposefully mixing genres such as Rock, Punk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Folk and Pop. Philly Music Fest is garnering attention from national publications, as well as agents and music industry professionals around the country – which I think is a testament to the quality of bands we have in Philadelphia and our diverse local music ecosystem.
