They say Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love, and there’s plenty to love about the amazing array of festivals coming to the Philly metro area this summer.

Among the highlights are local favorites the Disco Biscuits bringing City Bisco back to the Mann for two jamtronica-filled nights. The Peach Music Festival returns to Scraton for a weekend filled with jam scene favorites. There’s also the ever tasty Michael Arnone’s Crawfish Fest that brings the flavor of New Orleans to New Jersey.

Venture out to Kempton, Pennsylvania in July for the Inclusion Festival or if you’re looking for something a little more low-key, and perhaps with a little more variety, head south to Townsend, Delaware for Weekend At Bertha’s and enjoy a healthy mix of rock, funk, and jams.

Read on to learn more about all the top Philadelphia music festivals, find tickets, and plan your fest-filled summer in Philly.
