Celebrate the Arts At Home

Attend a virtual music festival, take a virtual dance lesson, learn to paint or watch musicians rehearse. Check out the Philadelphia art scene from home


The arts in Philadelphia have always been something special, and while concerts, classes, museums and shows are temporarily suspended to help stop the spread of COVID-19, you can celebrate the arts from your own home.

What: Love From Philly Virtual Music Festival

Music lovers get a special treat with Love from Philly, a three-day online virtual music festival. At least 75 performers from the Philadelphia region will stream from their own personal studios in their homes. Each day of the festival has a different theme, starting with “Busking on Broad”, followed by “Jazz Fest”, and the “Sounds of Philadelphia”.

The free event is aimed at taking donations with the proceeds going towards helping the creative community that is affected by the pandemic shutdown. This will benefit the city’s 30amp Circuit Grant for Philly’s local musicians, charities, and other entertainment professionals. 
When: May 1-May 3
