The brainchild of four friends, Sweet Juice Fest highlights everything to love about the Philly music scene while providing a platform for queer and femme musicians. It was born out of a desire to create an inclusive festival space that diverted from capitalist and cishet culture. The result? A DIY community event that includes an all-local lineup, interactive stations, and plenty of food, drinks, and fun.

After two successful years, Sweet Juice returns to Philly on July 6. This year, the fest will be held at The Farm at Awbury, a sprawling farm that promises to be an idyllic spot for all the festivities.

Noun, the alt-punk solo project of Marissa Paternoster from Screaming Females, will be headlining the festival. Supporting acts include Kelsey Cork and the Swigs, XPN favorites and self-proclaimed “Rock and roll Kool-Aid,” Honeychile, the moniker for jazzy Philly-based musician Becca Graham, and Sam Rise, an alum of WXPN’s Black Opry Residency who blends jazz, folk, and country to create music that reflects their expansive background, among others. The day will also feature a special performance from the reigning Mr. Philly Drag King Hannibal Lickher and students from Rock to the Future.
