Popped! Music Festival moved to Temple University’s Liacouras Center due to expected rain


Some big news from the people at Popped! Music Festival:

Due to the heavy rainfall and thunderstorms forecasted by the National Weather Service over the next several days for the Philadelphia area, the POPPED! Music Festival, scheduled for Sept 23 & 24 at FDR Park, has been moved to the Liacouras Center at 1776 N. Broad Street on Temple’s campus, in Philadelphia.

The producers of the event along with the Friends of FDR Park are taking the necessary precautions to insure a quality event and everyone’s safety. With the record rainfall the city has seen over the last month and the expected rain scheduled for the rest of the week, the ground will simply be oversaturated with water. In an effort to save the park from thousands of people congregating over 2 days in the excessively wet area and still be able to bring a safe, exciting event to Philadelphia, the decision was made to move the POPPED! Music Festival to the Liacouras Center.

All previously purchased tickets will be honored and tickets are on sale now for the Liacouras shows through Ticketmaster. Single Day Tickets and Two Day Passes for the POPPED! Music Festival are on sale now. Advanced price tickets ($59.50 each day for single day tix & $110 for 2 day passes) are available through Ticketmaster.com, ComcastTIX.com, PoppedPhiladelphia.com, The Liacouras Center Box Office and the Electric Factory Box Office located at 421 N. 7th Street (no service fees for cash purchases!). Day-of-event tickets will be $65 each and available at the Liacouras Center box office.

    What’s not being promoted by Popped is that their “Food Bazaar” element has been cancelled — since outside vendors are prohibited on Temple campus. Not that people are going BECAUSE of the local vendors, but you’d think they would at least reference it.

    Not even an update on Popped’s site yet.  Hoping the ticket I bought through LivingSocial will be honored at Liacouras.
