Philadelphia, PA — This was the second year running of an epic one day festival jam packed with wicked line-ups. The Self Help Festival is hosted by A Day To Remember, a hardcore band that got their start in 2003. This festival promotes good vibes and togetherness that all the fans share as a family while having a day to rock out!
The line-up is one to impress and perfect for pop rock fans. The bands were generally all in the same genre so fans could enjoy all the bands and get more bang for their buck. The line-up included Microwave, The Plot In You, Bad Omens, Angel Dust, Can’t Swim, Stray From The Path, Real Friends, Wage War, Silverstein, Moose Blood, Falling In Reverse, UnderOath, and of course headliners A Day To Remember. There were only two stages, so traveling from one band to the next was quick and easy. As the sun went down, the bigger acts, starting with Falling In Reverse, took to the stage with high energy and longer set times.
A Day To Remember finished the night with a blast… quite literally with giant beach balls, confetti cannons, and smoke macchines. From the double crowd-surfing to playing their classics mixed with their latest tracks, their set kept the crowd jumping!
This sweet getaway for a day festival is only coming to town four times this year. With Philadelphia down, the next stops include Orlando, Detroit, and San Bernardino. Tickets are still up so grab your tickets soon.
