Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Though it’s really just a parking lot with a stage at one end, Festival Pier wins points for its location. The 6,500-person-capacity venue at the foot of the Ben Franklin Bridge hosts rock, pop and hip-hop concerts during the warmer months of the year. Face east and feel the breeze coming in from the Delaware. Now face west, where performers are framed by gleaming buildings and zipping trains. When the sun goes down on a summer night, Festival Pier becomes one of Philly’s most blissful places to see a show.
