The Dell will welcome musical guests back for the 2021 Essence of Entertainment concert series

The Dell Music Center, a world-class outdoor amphitheater located in beautiful East Fairmount Park, has announced its reopening for the 2021 summer season.

The Dell will operate a modified schedule this year, hosting graduations, concerts and community events.

“The moment we have all longed for is finally here, another step towards life being normal, a chance to gather with family and friends in a safe, outdoor, spacious area,” said Susan  Slawson, general manager, Dell Music Center. “The Dell is thrilled to welcome residents back to join us to experience the power of music, community, and connection at Philadelphia’s premier outdoor amphitheater.”

Special events

Starting June 7, 2021, The Dell Music Center will be available for venue hire. The outdoor amphitheater has a capacity of 5,200 and is now booking graduations, corporate and institutional events.

Essence of Entertainment concerts

On Thursday, August 5, the Dell will welcome musical guests back for the 2021 Essence of Entertainment concert series.  As a result of COVID19, the 2021 series will be abbreviated, with performances each Thursday in the month of August. Concerts begin at 8 p.m. The full line up is forthcoming and will be available on or by calling the box office at 215-685-9564. 

Health and safety: The Dell Music Center will provide adequate supplies to support healthy hygiene; hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol, a way to dry hands after washing (e.g., paper towels, hand dryer).

For concert goers who still want to wear their mask during outdoor events, we support and encourage you, although, it is no longer mandatory.
