“We actually never really call it a ‘festival.’ It’s in the name, but I think the word ‘fest’ is more about the vibe of many things happening at once over a longer period of time.”
That statement from co-founder Keba Robinson pinpoints the underlying motivation of annual music, art and film event Walla Fest.
“We prefer calling it something along the lines of a ‘gathering.’ It’s a gathering of people but also a gathering of art and experiences.”
Now in its third year, Walla Fest is breaking away from its suburban roots in Norristown to take up residence at PhilaMOCA on August 8th and 9th. And with that venue’s alternative approach to showcasing art, this seems like a match made in heaven.
