Say it ain't so! Walla Fest is holding their final show this weekend at The Pharmacy in South Philadelphia. Since 2011, creators Keba Robinson, Yesenia Bello, and Ant Bui have been putting on their unique blend of music, art, and film fest. It started as a school project at Norristown Area High School before moving to the Centre Theater where they were able to grow, expand, and experiment with the project over the years. This past summer, they broke out of Norristown for the first time and held the two day fest at Philamoca in the Eraserhood neighborhood of Philadelphia. SEE ALSO: Walla Fest Announces Summer Dates and Move To Philly's PhilaMOCA! Although the nature of Walla was always experimental and to see it end at the top of it's game is not a surprise, I would have liked to see what was next.

Walla Fest is a combination music, art, and film fest. It is meant to foster creativity, collaboration, and experimentation as well as bring together people of diverse backgrounds who normally wouldn't share the same space. There is a unique “friendliness” to Walla Fest, as Keba Robinson put it last summer, a feeling that everyone there whether artist, musician, or spectator is participating in a collaborative event. It's also been a great place to catch on to some really good music way ahead of the curve. Many artists who've played at early Walla Fests have gone on to greater success in the music world including The Districts, Alex G, Pine Barons, The Snails, and Satellite Hearts.

This weekend's FINAL show will be on Sunday, December 27th at The PHaRMaCY, 1300/02 S 18th St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19146

MORE ABOUT WALLA FEST

Walla Fest is a two night music/art/film/vendor show that was founded in Norristown, PA at The Centre Theater in the summer of 2011. Our goal is to cultivate a space for bands, artists and audiences, both local and beyond, to gather around and bask in the glory of being creative, unique individuals.

We dig the idea of reimagining the structure of shows and exhibitions through blurring the line that often exists between audience and artist. At Walla, spectators are the completion of the creative equation. We hope to encourage the audience to take part in collaborative experiences; dancing, looking, listening, sharing, talking, and eating together is fun!

"Walla Presents" is a child of Walla Fest that began in the fall of 2014. We put together smaller and more frequent shows under this name in different locations. So far we've had two shows at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium and one Philly house show this past January.
