KEEP THAT FESTIVAL FEELING GOING ALL YEAR LONG WITH THE CABIN FEVER FEST EXACTLY SIX MONTHS UNTIL THE PHILADELPHIA FOLK FESTIVAL!
The Philadelphia Folksong Society, presenters of the oldest continuously run outdoor music festival in North America – the Philadelphia Folk Festival, invite you to join us for our long-hibernating CABIN FEVER FEST event from the safety and comfort of your own home.
What is Cabin Fever Fest?
Cabin Fever Fest is a celebration of music to mark only six months left in the long wait until the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Like the Philadelphia Folk Festival, it will feature unforgettable original performances from international headliners to local talent. Unlike the Festival, it will also feature an emphasis on music workshops and performance opportunities to digitally bring us closer together during these difficult winter months of isolation. Whether you’re a seasoned performer wanting to strengthen your skills, curious about an instrument or style, want your children to participate in a music lesson, or just want to sing along, ALL attendees will be able to watch these amazing workshops, but only VIP attendees will be able to participate in all of the workshops they choose.
What Do I Get With the VIP Ticket?
The VIP Ticket is for current PFS members only (become a member HERE for as little as $3 a month or $35 a year!) and includes THREE WEEKS of access to select PFS Archives (February 8-28th, 2021), access to participate in any and every workshop and open mic you want, and the opportunity to attend artist meet and greets via zoom! This is an INCREDIBLE VALUE for access to hundreds of hours of music and more!
How Do I Watch?
Tickets provide unlimited access to the Festival on one device at a time via the browser-based Festival (viewable on your phone, tablet, computer, television, projector, or screen of choice – same as the Philadelphia Folk Festival)!
I Attended the Digital Philadelphia Folk Festival – Is It Like That?
Yes! Think of Cabin Fever Fest as just a wintertime Philadelphia Folk Festival! The only difference will be that there will be one stage dedicated to participatory workshops for professional musicians and PFS members alike – with opportunities to learn, play, and/or sing along!
I Didn’t Attend the Digital Philadelphia Folk Festival – How Does This Work?
The Cabin Fever Fest is digital and available for you to watch on one device at a time from the comfort of your home. The event will start on Saturday, February 20th at 10am EST and end on Sunday, February 21st at 9pm EST. You’ll then be able to watch anything you miss (over 50 hours of music!) on demand for the next week until February 28th!
Who is Playing? What are the Workshops?
We are VERY excited to release the full lineup in the new year, and are offering deep discounts to our Folk Family who get their tickets before the amazing lineup drops. The workshops will be led by professional musicians and PFS members alike with opportunities for youth and adults to participate “onstage.”
Do I Have To Sit In Front Of My Screen All Weekend?
Can’t watch the Cabin Fever Fest on a certain day or don’t want to be in front of a screen all weekend? NO PROBLEM! Each day of the Fest you purchase will give you access to the concerts for a whole week following the event! For the second time in the history of music festivals (after the 2020 Philadelphia Folk Festival), you can be in two places at once and not miss a single performance of the event: watch any music you may have missed or rewatch your favorites again and again!
