One Day Two Stages Four Hundred Artists

All proceeds benefit music nonprofit



Kids Rock Philly is no recital — be prepared for a rock ‘n roll show that will leave you breathless in more ways than one! It’s an unconventional collaboration between School of Rock, LiveConnections and World Cafe Live.

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 their work with LiveConnections, the Kids Rock Philly event is also teaching their students the value and importance of community philanthropy, using their time and amazing talents.

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 5000 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.

Come, spend a few hours on Sunday, February 24th at World Cafe Live, where a great beer, food and beverage selection will be available throughout the afternoon. On the Downstairs stage, you’ll see dozens of very talented young bands playing an eclectic mix of the greatest rock music of all time. The Upstairs stage will feature a unique showcase of original material and compositions by School Of Rock students who have been writing and performing their own music.
