Now, with just days to spare – and with fest-goers who have been getting a bit testy on social media about the delay – organizers have announced artist set times which will be spread over five stages; the Rocky Stage, the Liberty Stage, the Freedom Stage, the Skate Stage and the TIDAL stage. And iTunes has the app.
No word on whether those death metal Rihanna shirts will be made available, or if Coldplay are gonna pull out another tribute to the late Gene Wilder, but it’s a festival, so all sorts of madness has the potential to happen. One thing guaranteed is taking public transportation to the fest grounds is the way to go as it’s taking place smack dab in the middle of the city, resulting in a shit-ton of road closures and diverted traffic. Nobody needs that hassle in their life, so head over to the city’s transit system site, SEPTA, where they’ve got information on additional service for the event.
