Philly’s favorite local alternative rock radio station Radio 104.5 hosts an annual Winter Jawn concert featuring some of the biggest names in the alternative genre. Every year the concert seems to get bigger and bigger with more hype, coverage and anticipation. This year promises to meet the hype with huge acts, plenty of talent and some interesting surprises.
Jawn until dawn at the Radio 104.5 Winter Jawn
Radio 104.5’s Winter Jawn brings together the City of Brotherly Love to embrace one universal feeling- the love of music. The event is free and available for all ages. You do have to acquire tickets beforehand through designated free ticket downloads, winning them or by getting them in person at ticket raid events. Although the last batch of free admission offerings have been downloaded, the website does say to check back for the chance to score the coveted tickets.
There is also a VIP option for those who want to listen to the sweet tunes in style. Marketed as a $55 Hospitality Pass, the VIP ticket option includes a reserved private viewing area as well as a private VIP area in 1100 Social, four drink tickets (that includes beer, wine, mixed drinks and soft drinks), a food buffet (noon-2 pm) and private bathrooms. Any Philadelphian who wishes to purchase the Hospitality Pass must be 21 or older.
But who do you get to see with the general admission ticket/ VIP Pass? Main Stage acts include Young the Giant, Matt & Kim, lovelytheband and The Interrupters with more acts performing on the New Music Discovery Stage such as Bob Moses, Keuning, Royal Teeth, Fitness and The Brevet. Back in December, Radio 104.5 asked the community who should be the local opener and the City of Brotherly Love answered with the 2019 local opener being The Great Enough.
All of these amazing acts will perform throughout the event and fans have already been not-so-patiently awaiting the musical extravaganza- especially if they have attended the event in recent years. The anticipation is rightfully so building, and with the concert being right around the corner Philadelphians can expect this weekend to be electrifying and colorful.
The exciting event takes place at XFinity Live! and will go on through any weather circumstance rain or shine (or snow). Winter Jawn is brought to you by: Miller Lite, Family & Co. Jewelers, Skull Shaver, EBE Entertainment, Buckman’s Ski Shop and Courtyard Philadelphia South at the Navy Yard.
