Philly rapper, producer, and promoter James Weldon first envisioned his Smorefest event as a perfect summertime hang, bringing together friends, food, and a fantastic musical lineup under the stars. It debuted at West Philly’s Pentridge Station beer garden, and after COVID sidelined his plans for a 2020 edition, the event returns next month at One Art Community Center.

The day-long lineup on August 28th is headlined by Masego, Elhae, and Jon Vinyl, and features a robust roster of Philly artists on the undercard: Weldon himself plays a set, along with singer-songwriter and soundscaper Jacqueline Constance, suave crooner Beano French, party rockers Arthur Thomas and the Funkitorium, song selector DJ Na$h, and more.
