2nd Street Festival Free Multi-Block Party this Sun. Aug. 4; 
Broadcast Live on iradiophilly
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia, PA (Northern Liberties) The founders of the 2nd Street Festival today announced the final programming and vendor lineup, sealing the deal on their promise to light up Northern Liberties with a musical bash and multi-block party on Sunday, August 4th. The event is a FREE, all-day celebration of the community and culture on 2nd Street and will present a total of 27 artists on four stages, at Georgetown, Laurel, and Fairmount Streets, as well as in the Piazza. The 2013 installment marks the third year of unique partnership with the Philadelphia Folksong Society (PFS), as well as Point Entertainment and Electric factory in programming the 7-block party.

Programming focuses on artists with a local base and national presence, with additions including:

West Philadelphia Orchestra – Vacationer – Weird Hot – New Sweden – The Shackletons – DJ Slowpoke – Pete Donnelly – Mohican – Kuf Knotz – Richard Drueding & Jim Hamilton Duet – Dance City
to join the lineup of artists already announced:
The Low Anthem—Denison Witmer – Bailey Hounds – Brad Hinton Band – Angela Shiek – On the Water – Laser Background – Sierra Hurtt – Ensemble Novo – Banned Books –  Blayer Pointdujour & the Rockers Galore – DJ DNA – Uptown Tone – Outside Eyes – Jams with John Fuhr & Friends –– Philly School of Rock

Headliner The Low Anthem returns to Philly for the first time since hiatus, promising another unforgettable headliner performance, which in previous years included the likes of indie goddess tUNeYaRdS and Philly fringe folk heroes Man Man.

The Low Anthem and others on the Piazza stage will be broadcast by partners at iRadioPhilly on their website and mobile apps. To check out the details of the broadcast visit the 2nd Street Fest broadcast page.

The programming doesn’t stop at the stage’s edge. Bryan Dilworth, from Electric Factory and tavern sponsor Gunner’s Run, hints at what you can expect, “All parties involved try to pack more creativity into the day, year after year. I am really excited to have the West Philly Orchestra, and we are planning on harnessing their blend of Balkan dance party for some kind of parade opening on 2nd Street to the 6 pm Piazza concert.” 

This green-light approach to bringing culture to every cranny of 2nd St. is the brainchild of founders William Reed (Standard Tap and Johnny Brenda’s), Owen Kamihira (Bar Ferdinand and El Camino Real) and Oron Daskal (North Bowl). Their restaurants turn into street taverns, with beer gardens and food specials, along with dunk tanks, moon bounces, and craft demos all within arm’s reach. Daskal’s North Bowl transforms into a day-long party (and after-party) mecca with guests like Rich Medina, Willyum, and Rob Paine.

In addition to music and hospitality, the 2nd Street Festival will offer over 100 crafters and vendors, kids programs, workshops, and eco-friendly initiatives. The 2nd Street Festival is still accepting volunteers as well as craft, food, merchandise, and nonprofit vendors as part of its celebration.
