Friday 8/12:

Blink-182, A Day To Remember, and All Time Low are at BB&T Pavilion. Blink-182’s performance in Bethlehem in June was a great time and with two other great bands, it’s an awesome bang for your buck. Get there early and don’t miss the local band who will be opening the show! Get tickets here.

90’s alternative band O.A.R. will be at Festival Pier. Expect a gorgeous night with a good crowd for this throwback show. Tickets are available here.

Saturday 8/13:

If you love EDM, you will already have Mad Decent Block Party on your radar. Big names like Diplo and Dirty South Joe are bringing the beats to Festival Pier for one long party. Get your tickets here.

British electronic duo HONNE is at Union Transfer on Saturday night. If you want to go dancing, this is the show for you. HONNE is relatively new on the scene but that doesn’t mean they’re inexperienced. Their sound is futuristic with a punch of soul. Get tickets here.

Sunday 8/14:

The Hollystock Festival is back in Mount Holly, NJ. The all day event starts at 9:30am and features local musicians all day, with many artists coming from Philly. Checkout the full lineup here, including Kid Felix, a Philly favorite. Vendors are lined up and down the street and you can get anything from homemade pickles to outfits for your dog, and don’t forget about the beer garden right next to one of the stages.

Shawn Mendes at the Mann Center. The self-made artist came into the scene through Vine videos and his popularity with younger audiences is no joke. Head on over to Fairmount and check out his radiance in person. You can buy tickets here.
