On a more personal note, I have no affiliation with the above event and understand that the lineup is not likely to appeal to many people on this site. I’ve gone each of the past 6 years or so, and although I won’t likely be attending this year as I’m no longer in the Philly area, trust me, it’s a good time.
p.s. If you have a family who doesn’t appreciate hours of bagpipes, drop them off at the HUGE King of Prussia about 5 minutes from the festival, enjoy the music, and pick them up about 10 hours later when they’ve finished walking around the mall.
