Mission:Loves Local Music is an advocacy organization dedicated to promoting the diverse music scene that Philadelphia continues to foster. By building relationships between local musicians, businesses, artists, and innovators, Loves Local Music aims to plan creative events that give local musicians more exposure within the Philadelphia community.

In order to fully showcase the magnitude of creativity and ingenuity that Philadelphians possess, Loves Local Music supports all local artists, regardless of what style of music they perform.


Local Music Day:On Saturday, May 12, 2012, Loves Local Music will be presenting the first Philadelphia Local Music Day! On Philadelphia Local Music Day, local businesses will be playing recordings of five featured local musicians for one full workday, giving these artists the opportunity to reach new audiences in an alternative setting. Philadelphia Local Music Day aims to bring more awareness to Philadelphia’s vibrant, talented arts community while encouraging Philadelphians to support the city’s local culture and economy.
