It has been five years since World Cafe Live opened its doors to the public, and they are celebrating in style with over 12 hours of musical performances on their two stages. On Friday, October 2, World Cafe Live will feature a variety of free musical acts all day long starting at 1 p.m. lasting through the night. All are welcome to join in the party!

The evening performances are headlined by rising star Trombone Shorty with his band Orleans Avenue, as well as Philadelphian favorites such as Mutlu, Alo Brasil, Cheap Seats and American Babies. Also playing on the downstairs stage: Joshua Park, Papertrees, Birdie Busch, Mason Porter, Hezekiah Jones, Cornfield McCarthy, The Real Feel, Boy Wonder, Agent Moosehead, and Andy of the Future, who will be DJ-ing between sets.

The Upstairs cafe will have free performances all day by local favorites David Falcone, Christine Havrilla, Bob Beach, Matt Santry, Lizanne Knott, Carsie Blanton, and Kate Miller-Heidke from Australia. World Cafe Live has been helping launch the careers of many local and national musicians for the five years it has been in operation.

The same afternoon at 3 p.m., a trolley tour of both the famous Philadelphia murals and Philadelphia’s own Yards Brewing Company will be leaving from the venue. Along with a complimentary Yards beer, participants will enjoy the building’s historical murals before setting off on a trolley tour around Philadelphia and returning to World Cafe Live for more drinks, food, and live performances.
