One Day Two Stages Four Hundred Artists

All proceeds benefit music nonprofit

12:30PM – 7:00PM


Kids Rock Philly is no recital — be prepared for a rock ‘n roll festival that will leave you inspired! It’s an unconventional collaboration between School of Rock and World Cafe Live, benefiting the music education nonprofit LiveConnections.

The six participating School of Rock venues in the Philadelphia region host more than 500 kids every week, teaching them not only how to rock, but how to build confidence, how to work together and have fun in the process. And now, through a collaboration with non-profit LiveConnections, the Kids Rock Philly event is also teaching students the value and importance of giving back.

During this all-day festival, more than 400 School of Rock students perform at World Cafe Live, one of the best venues in Philly. Proceeds support free music educational opportunities for 4500 Philly youth through LiveConnections’ innovative programs. It’s full-circle philanthropy: kids playing music to make music programs possible for other kids.

Kids Rock Philly has been featured on 6ABC, NBC10, and Time Out Philadelphia. View 6ABC’s Kids Rock University City for a Good Cause to see the festival in action.

Join us! Spend a few hours on Sunday, February 23rd at World Cafe Live, where a great beer, food and beverage selection will be available throughout the afternoon. On stage in the Music Hall, you’ll see dozens of talented young bands playing an eclectic mix of the greatest rock music of all time. The Lounge upstairs will feature house bands and a unique showcase of original material and compositions by School Of Rock students.
