The Sundrop Music and Arts Festival describes itself as “three nights and two days of the best Philadelphia music has to offer,” and, given the quality of the lineup, it’s hard to disagree. Notable headlining acts will include Leana Song, I Yahn I Arkestra, Shilpa Ray and more, in styles ranging from reggae to funk to punk and beyond. In addition, be sure to check out the vendors at the festival, including clothing from Philly Kid Grafix and Seampoets, and jewelry from Foxglove Factory. The festival offers a great way to enjoy the whole weekend in the run-up to Memorial Day. Coupled with one or two of our other event recommendations, the Sundrop Music and Arts Festival will make for a long weekend full of fun and great music.
The festival is hosted by The Fire, located at 412 W. Girard Ave, and runs from May 23rd through May 25th, kicking off on Friday night at 9:15. Although many of the sets will run late into the night, there will also be many afternoon performances on Saturday and Sunday, so get there early and stay late! If you’re 21+ and looking to see some great bands with some excellent food, beer and crafts on the side, then the Sundrop Music and Arts Festival is for you.
