There are so many great places to catch free concerts in the Philadelphia area in 2018. I started the season with the West Philly Porchfest, a great DIY neighborhood music festival. Other events on the 2018 summer concert calendar contains a diverse list of locations and bands that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and musical tastes. Here are some of the best spots to catch free concerts in the Philadelphia area this year:
On April 24 Philadelphia-area hip-hop artist N.ave released Black Magic. The four-song EP flaunts blunt lyrics backed by catchy production. Black Magic is N.ave's first record of 2018 and second release from within the past year.
Midway through his band’s Wednesday evening set at Union Transfer, Mondo Cozmo frontman Josh Ostrander looked out into the crowd and defiantly stated “This is what not giving up looks like.” The night was more than just a concert. It was a homecoming and a celebration of an artist who was riding an incredible wave of success. Playing to a hometown crowd that he later admitted was inside the largest Philadelphia-area venue that he had ever played in, the Bucks County native led a band that left nothing on the table over an hour-long set that was packed with emotion and energy.
