POPPED! Music Festival and Philadelphia

Be sure to check out this week’s POPPED! Music Festival in Philadelphia. Taking place on Friday September 23rd and Saturday the 24th in FDR Park, this festival will surely cure your depression over the end of the summer festival season. POPPED! will feature an extensive lineup of big time performers such as The Shins, Pretty Lights and Girl Talk. The festival has made a comeback this year to the excitement of Philadelphians and out-of-towners alike, and FDR Park is the perfect place for it. Located in South Philadelphia, this green oasis nestled within the city is comprised of grassy fields and lakes. There’s no better way to enjoy Philadelphia in the fall than listening to some awesome music in FDR Park.

While POPPED! will no doubt provide plenty of entertainment, the City of Brotherly Love has much more to offer. Whether you’re a history buff, a sports fan, an artist, or just looking for some fun, you’ll be able to find something good. Here are some suggestions after the jump.
