For the third year a blend of styles takes center stage at the WHYY Connection Festival. The 2013 edition will feature They Might Be Giants, Ben Kweller, Khari Mateen, Heekiah Jones and Jesse Ruben. The event is free but online registration is required. The festival will take place at the River Stage at the Great Plaza of Penn’s Landing, the concert starts at 3pm on September 7, 2013.
Never been to the Connections Festival before? Get a glimpse of the acts, scenes and crowds through the photos that are part of the ‘all access’ reportages that I made on assignment for WHYY’s NewsWorks.org at the first two editions of the festival.
The 2011 edition featured Dr. Dog, Manu Chao, The Baseball Project, Kuf Knotz, Birdie Busch, Toy Soldiers, and Justin Townes Earle. In 2012 Yo La Tengo, Frank Turner, Maps & Atlases, The Lawsuits, and Fabian Akilles took the stage. Check back later for my 2013 photo reportage!
