Philly’s premier big-box venue not named the Wells Fargo Center, the Electric Factory hosts big-name touring acts in a somewhat remote locale carved from an old industrial space with enormous windows and epic lighting. Around in this location and configuration since the mid-’90s, the Factory is named after the legendary Center City venue that hosted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. Nowadays the booking skews a little poppier, but the calendar is still diverse enough to accommodate fans of genres ranging from rap to heavy metal.
