Philadelphia no doubt is known for it's rich history and influence in music, particularly in its heyday 30-40 years ago. American Bandstand, Sound of Philadelphia, Gamble and Huff, The Hooters, Hall and Oates, Joan Jett, The Roots and many more have defined our impressive history. The Philly music scene is seeing a resurgence lately led by bands like The Districts, War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Marian Hill, Hop Along, and more.

That's just a review on the music being made here and shared with the world. What is it like to see live music in the city of brotherly love? Recently, (a ticket reseller) analyzed various data points including median ticket price and overall number of upcoming concerts to determine the best city for live music in North America. Philadelphia came in a #1! See the graphic below for the top 20. Cities traditionally thought of as great music cities (Nashville, Atlanta, New York, Austin, Los Angeles) fell down the list.

Philadelphia has a great combination of modestly priced concerts and a wide variety of shows happening every night. If you want to see live music in the city there is always something happening every night of the week. Despite the recent closure of historic rooms (North Star Bar and Dobbs) new places are opening including the brand new Fillmore. The city boasts great small spaces to first class large venues. The vibrant local original scene guarantees you'll be able to find a hidden gem playing somewhere each day, plus the big city and variety of major venues attracts the tours of all the major artists. According to, the top genres are Adult Contemporary, Alternative, Blues & Jazz, Classical, and County & Folk. Get out there and see someone play.
