Cedar Greenperforming from 4:30pm to 5pm at Plaza Tropical
This Bethlehem band is also part of the acts that the Bethlehem high schoolers booked, and you can tell.  Their sound is a throwback to older pop punk like Blink 182, New Found Glory, and Sum 41.

Kuf Knotzperforming from 5:30pm to 6:30pm and 7pm to 8pm at Main Street
This Philly-based rapper blends a whole bunch of styles, from soul and R&B to techno and dubstep.

Sarah Borrelloperforming from 6:30pm to 8pm at Plaza Tropical
Borrello’s huge voice, backed by sultry rock, combines for a show that won’t disappoint.

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukeboxperforming from 7pm to 8:30pm at Americaplatz
Propelled to fame thanks to Reddit, their vintage jazz-era covers of people like Miley Cyrus and Macklemore have taken the internet by storm.

Bastard Bearded Irishmenperforming from 7pm to 8:30pm at Volksplatz
While they’re not the Fighting Jamesons, they’re of the same ilk.  Irish punk songs about drinking, what could be better for a Saturday night?

Nick D and the Believersperforming from 8:30pm to 10:30pm at Main Street
This is our pick of the day.  Their poppy electronic sound has been stuck in our head for days after playing the their songs on repeat for the past week.

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

Igor and the Red Elvisesperforming from 9pm to 11pm at Volksplatz
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.

White Like Fireperforming from 11pm to 1am at the TD Community Stage
These indie pop rockers remind us of The KGB and the Pink Spiders.  Plus, they’re playing til 1am, and there’s nothing else going on that late.
