The festival will feature a mix of genres, not just one music scene. The lineup includes some of Philly's hottest performers, like Low Cut Connie, Vita and the Woolf, The Districts, Driftwood Soldier, Waxahatchee and Hardwork Movement.

In addition, the festival will highlight food and drink from Philadelphia. All taps will be pouring only local craft beer, and cocktails will be crafted with spirits from local distilleries. On Friday and Saturday, there will be free Federal Donuts.
