Our mission is to provide Philadelphia with a sustainable, independently produced, all ages outdoor music festival featuring genre-spanning local and national performances while bringing global media exposure to Philadelphia.

POPPED! Festival 2008
The POPPED! Festival is a 3-day event that will occur annually in Philadelphia. In its second year, POPPED! will use Drexel University as its venue over three days, June 20, 21, 22nd 2008. POPPED! will host globally recognized artists as well as breakthrough local artists, creating lineups each night with unique performances that can only be seen once in a lifetime.

In addition to extraordinary entertainment, POPPED! has a focus on sustainability. The Festival will be run entirely "green" from working with the Sustainable Business Network to cutting the use of plastic bottles, while educating concert-goers on the importance of being green and encouraging them to do so.
