Popped! Festival Is On

The Philadelphia Popped! Music Festival, which seemed doomed after plans fell through to expand to three days and relocate to FDR Park in South Philadelphia in partnership with Live Nation, is back on, albeit in scaled down form. Last year, the Fest took place on 33rd Street on the Drexel campus and featured Vampire Weekend, The Ting Tings and Gogol Bordello. This year, it will be part of the 2nd Street Festival in Northern Liberties on June 20. And it'll be free, with a local band focus. On the bill so far: Washingtonian Benjy Freree, plus Rock Plaza Central, the Blood Feathers, Birds of Maya, Magnet City Kids and the Chimeras. More names to come, and for more info go here.
