The first Phillips Backyard Music Festival of the season is happening this weekend


Let the backyard parties return!

Each festival weekend in the Phillips’ Backyard will offer a different mix of music genres, artists, foods and more. So there is sure to be something for everyone!

The first weekend of music, known as GLITTERBOMBER, kicks off the concert series on May 14th and 15th with artists such as Future Islands, Bryce Vine, Durand Jones and The Indications, The Zolas, Begonia, Astrocolor, Murge’s Golden Era of Hip Hop and more.

Can’t choose which weekend you want to attend? You don’t have to! A 6-pack of tickets, getting you access to all three weekends, is $330.

“No VIP, not a bad seat in the house,” Phillips Brewing said in a release.

“Pricing and fees kept low to ensure the best music for the lowest prices!”

TILT! will take place from July 9th and 10th and feature a lineup of Half Moon Run, The Beaches, Current Swell, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Fleece, Hotel Mira, Old Soul Rebel, Witch Prophet and more.
