Brooke DiCaroperforming from 5:30pm to 7pm at the National Penn Bank Jazz Cabaret Stage
If you’re looking for something a little tamer for your Friday evening, DiCaro’s singer/songwriter and jazz-tinged singing promises to put on a great show.

The Revivalperforming from 7pm to 8:30pm at Liederplatz
These synth-heavy hard rockers have an awesome sound, and their single “Shake This” has a radio-ready feel to it.

Mree/Marieperforming from 7pm to 7:40pm at Lyrikplatz
This singer/songwriter has been playing at Musikfest for years and recently got a shoutout from Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon for covering his song “Michicant”

Puddles Pity Partyperforming from 8pm to 9pm at the Musikfest Cafe
Probably the most well-known person that will be hitting the free stages, Puddles Pity Party is a sad clown with a golden voice.  If you haven’t heard of him already, just go ahead and watch the video of his super-popular cover of Lorde’s “Royals”

Julian Fulton and the Zombie Gospel performing from 8:30pm to 10:30pm at Main Street
This indie rock outfit has played at Musikfest previously and their melodic jams still have us wanting more.

Igor and the Red Elvisesperforming from 9pm to 11pm at Americaplatz
A perennial favorite at Musikfest, these crazy Russians play a mix of rockabilly and surf punk to often hilarious lyrics and always have a huge crowd, dancing the night away.

Gangstagrassperforming from 9pm to 11pm at Volksplatz
These guys have become a festival favorite for us.  Bluegrass crossed with hip-hop pretty much sums it all up.

KiTperforming from 9:30pm to 11pm at Plaza Tropical
This Caribbean band plays a crazy mashup of traditional Caribbean music with electronica thrown in the mix.  At minimum they should be a pretty entertaining act to see live.
