There are many great voices coming to Philly this weekend. These are the events that you can’t miss if you want to stay in the Philly music scene!

Thursday 7/16:

Broadway superstar Idina Menzel is bringing her powerful voice for world tour! The Mann Center will be hosting the first night of her tour. Get tickets here!


Friday 7/17:

Early in the day, Jesse Malin and Langhorne Slim and the Law are performing at WXPN‘s Free At Noon. This double-header will be twice the excitement with a big act paired with a local one. As the name implies, the event is free, but you’ll have to get in line way before noon to grab a spot!

British R&B duo Floetry will be at the TLA. It’s been a while since they’ve toured as a duo so it’s a big deal! The show is sold out but you can try finding tickets on the secondary market.


Saturday 7/18:

For rock fans, Umphrey’s McGee and Lettuce are teaming up for a wild show at Festival Pier. Bring your dads, moms, and friends, and remind them why you’re the coolest person ever.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will be showcasing his pipes at the Mann Center along with the talented Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. This will be a unique experience mixing his comedy with his jazzy vocals. Get tickets here.

Young up and coming R&B pop star Jasmine V will be at the TLA in support of rapper Jake Miller. There will be more acts on the bill for a night of good jams. Get tickets here.


Sunday 7/19:

Ghost Train Orchestra from Brooklyn will be making lots of sound at Johnny Brenda’s. What better way to wrap up a busy weekend than with some good old-fashioned big band music.
