This Is Hardcore Fest – 2016 Philly Preview

this is hardcore fest 2016

Philly’s gargantuan hardcore music festival, This Is Hardcore Fest, will envelope the City Of Brotherly Love August 4th through August 7th with a massive line-up dropping jaws of OGs and newcomers to the hardcore scene alike. Now in its 11th installment, founder Joe ‘Hardcore’ McKay and his tireless Philly Hardcore Shows organizing teams have crafted a well-oiled machine, once again seeing scores of highly-sought after bands with a mix of great food vendors (both vegan and non-vegan), various animal welfare and humanitarian organizations, and thousands of hardcore enthusiasts from around the world ascending on the Electric Factory venue and show grounds following the opening (sold out) night at Union Transfer.
