The Twilight Music Festival is a summer long music series hosted by Parks on Tap Jr. Every Sunday from July 9th — August 27th, the mini beer garden will be set up from 4-9PM, at MLK Jr. Drive near the Dragon Boat Dock. Guests can sit back with a beer in hand to enjoy music from local artists along the scenic Schuylkill River. The festival is a fun way for Philadelphians to support the local music scene and our City's green spaces. A portion of all proceeds benefits Philly's parks!
Parks on Tap Jr. is a partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, Fairmount Park Conservancy and FCM Hospitality. Parks on Tap Jr. is a mini version of the Parks on Tap traveling beer garden that will be popping up at even more locations this summer!
Entrance to the festival is 21+. If you are under 21 you must be accompanied by your parent or legal guardian.
Known for their cinematic orchestrations blending folk, pop and electronic music, Grandchildren have been steadily making a name for themselves since songwriter Aleks Martray founded the group in Philadelphia in 2008. Since then the band has evolved into a dynamic ensemble of musicians, lauded by critics and fans alike for their intricately layered arrangements and high-energy performances.
Martray attributes their eclectic sound to his nomadic upbringing across Europe, the US and Latin America and a reverence for music of the past. He explains, “I grew up on everything from Michael Jackson, to Fela Kuti, to Rachmaninoff, so music was both a form of time travel and the one constant that held everything together.” This sense of a sonic journey and musical omnivorousness is what defined Grandchildren’s first two albums – Everlasting (2010) and Golden Age (2013).
