Center City Philadelphia came alive last Saturday, June 25th, with the sweet sounds of Molestice! The free, all-day block party + music festival took place on the 100 block of N Mole St in celebration of the summer solstice.

Our entertainment booking agency put together a stellar lineup of musical artists for the Molestice stage. Senior talent buyer Sean Timmons and the rest of our team worked ardently on putting together the entertainment for this exciting event.

The Bands

 Headlining Molestice 2016 was Brooklyn funk/soul outfit Pimps of Joytime. Fresh off of the release of their latest album, “Jukestone Paradise”, Pimps of Joytime generated a lot of excitement in the days leading up to the festivities.

Our talent buyer, Sean Timmons, handpicked an eclectic lineup of performers from dream pop to hip-hop, blues, soul, Latin and electronic. Taking the Molestice stage along with Pimps of Joytime were Philly favorites Chill Moody, Weekender, Worldtown SoundSystem, Brian LaPann, Muscle Tough and a surprise set from El Caribefunk!

The Reaction

 Last Saturday’s turnout of over 1,500 attendees of all-ages reflected the hard work that Mole Street Artists put in. The crowd at Molestice had a great time dancing and grooving to the bands. From noon until 8, the stage on the corner of Mole and Cherry St. was constantly buzzing with activity.

While we’re busy throughout the year booking entertainment for Philadelphia weddings, non-profit and corporate events, and wine festivals, the annual Molestice festival offers the entertainment booking company an opportunity to shine with a full-fledged music festival to showcase Philadelphia artists.
