The Philly Music Fest is fast approaching. On the weekend of September 22nd, a heaping of Philly’s most talented will descend upon World Cafe Live. In preparation for this event, we now have a trusted set time schedule.

And prepare we must, because there’s a whole lot of awesome local bands at this thing. I mean, the lineup’s more stacked than a can of Pringles.

It’s the worst when you fall in love with a band after you just saw them at a festival, so if you aren’t hip to all of the names on the bill, be drawn in with the colorful artist descriptions below (first prize goes to Slaughter Beach, Dog) stay for the sweet jams, and grab your tickets to the show here.
