From August 13-16, 2020, the Philadelphia Folksong Society will do the unthinkable: bring the vibrant experience of North America’s oldest continuously run outdoor music festival to the digital world. With COVID-19 threatening to derail a decades-long tradition, this folk community responded as it always has, with ingenuity, compassion, and the indomitable spirit of people-power.

The Philadelphia Folksong Society has partnered with Mountain View Staging, with over 20 years of streaming excellence, to present the 59th Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival as a fully digital interactive musical experience, complete with multiple stages/streams of curated music, fully integrated chat features, campfire open mics, zoom campsites, craft show, food and merchandise tents, and above all else: the invaluable sense of community and connectivity that comes from the shared experience of enjoying music together.
