Temporarily renamed 'North Seventh,' Philadelphia's iconic music venue is renamed by local residents following a naming contest hosted by new owners, The Bowery Presents.

PHILADELPHIA (Oct. 18, 2018) - The Bowery Presents announced today the venue most recently known as North Seventh, formerly the Electric Factory, will host audiences under a new name - Franklin Music Hall - after the owner of the Electric Factory mark refused to license the use of the name and logo. The name Franklin Music Hall was selected from more than 5,000 submissions during a naming contest, which kicked off in September following acquisition of the venue by The Bowery Presents.

"We were thrilled to see such an outpouring of suggestions from the city's most passionate music lovers," said Bryan Dilworth, The Bowery Presents Philadelphia buyer and veteran of 24 years at the venue. "The new title was truly selected by fans, for fans, and honors the spirit of such an iconic Philadelphia music venue. We look forward to the Franklin Music Hall becoming a household name as the legacy of the venue continues to be written."

From the pool of contest entries, many suggestions took inspiration from one of Philadelphia's most iconic public figures, Benjamin Franklin. Among them, four fans suggested the winning title of "Franklin Music Hall." The winners will receive two complimentary tickets to every show at the venue through 2020.

All tickets sold under Electric Factory and North Seventh names will be honored at Franklin Music Hall. Official ticket sales for all shows are available through Ticketmaster, the Franklin Music Hall box office and BoweryPhilly.com.
