PHILADELPHIA - Jul. 6, 2017 – Philadelphia’s rising funk-electronica musical powerhouse, Tweed, announce their return to the city of brotherly love on August 26th at One Art Community Center for the inaugural Sensorium Festival. The event’s first round lineup boasts a multi-genre bill with artists spanning from Baltimore producer, Soohan, to diverse Philly acts like MINKA, The Beating ft. Jesse Miller of Lotus, and Moon Bounce. In addition to this blooming lineup, Tweed released a statement saying that that the homegrown Connecticut band lespecial will be joining the festivities.
Tweed has had national success in 2016 and 2017 and are determined to build upon that momentum with a forthcoming full length release that they’re recording in between summer tour dates. The band recently announced a late night show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge, Post-Phish MSG, on Aug 4, among their festival schedule highlighted by appearances at FARM Fest in New Jersey, Great North Festival in Maine, and The Werk Out in Ohio.
“We’re really excited about curating our very own event. Sensorium will not only feature some of our favorite up and coming acts, but also sensational visual and interactive art installations” says Tweed drummer and Sensorium organizer, Joe Vela. “We wanted to do something different, and the urban oasis at One Art could not be a better venue for the outdoor extravaganza we envision.”
The one-day Sensorium festival will celebrate Philly’s thriving diversity in music and arts, and in the continued spirit of community, a portion of proceeds from advance ticket sales will be donated to a local non-profit organization, Rock to the Future. Rock to the Future provides free and low-cost music programs for underserved Philadelphia kids and teens. The donation will be made in honor of the band’s late friend, Suman Addya, who was an inspiration for the Sensorium event and regularly traveled on the road with Tweed.
With their uniquely-styled dance parties, Tweed plans to bring their curated Sensorium event to more cities over the next year. Do not miss the inaugural event happening August 26 from 1pm to midnight.
