2Stock Announces Date of Second Festival

The 2Stock Music Festival has officially announced the date for 2Stock II - September 27, 2014.

You may remember that the original 2Stock was held last July to benefit the Edward O'Malley Complex (EOM) on Front and Moore Streets. With help from the IBEW Local 98, the inaugural event featured upwards of 30 locals acts performing live on two outdoors stages on the baseball field as well one more inside the EOM. 2Stock was a night of fun, family, and music for Pennsport and the surrounding area.

The EOM was an awesome venue and offered a relaxed lawn seat concert experience right in the middle of the Pennsport. While they may have lucked out with the amazing weather, it was great to see everyone come out and support the EOM - it's a community treasure and deserved its time in the spotlight.

I could really see this festival growing over the years in to an event that becomes a South Philly staple featuring more musical acts, diverse food vendors, and a festival experience only Pennsport can provide.

Want a little sample of how a music festival goes down on Two Street? Here is a video of the post-festival parade led by none other than New Sound Brass Band.
