The Lehigh Valley with Love ComedyPlatz is returning to Musikfest with two free nights of stand-up comedy on August 10 and 11 at The Ice House on 56 River Street.
Even with the summer of 2018 just kicking into high gear, you can make your plans to join us at the music community’s biggest party of 2019 as early as this week.
We kicked off our 2018 with a bang at SteelStacks in January, when we, three musical acts, and more than 100 of our closest friends congregated inside the ArtsQuest Center’s Blast Furnace Room for the Lehigh Valley Underground 2nd Birthday Spectacular.
In our history, we have had the good fortune of a great number of incredible community partners to help us produce and promote events. These partners include the obvious – SouthSide Arts District and ArtsQuest among them. However, there are unsung heroes that, depending on their level of involvement in community programs like #LVUFirstFriday and SouthSide Arts and Music Festival, can very well make or break the success of a program.

The Infamous Stringdusters are one of the best bluegrass acts around today. Hot off their Grammy win for their latest studio album, “Laws Of Gravity,” the band has been touring the country to support the album.
On Friday night, the quintet made their first stop in Bethlehem, headlining the Southside Arts & Music Festival wristband stages.
After a spirited Friday night that saw standout performances across SouthSide Arts & Music Festival’s free and ticketed stages, Saturday came around, proving to be a strong follow-up to bring the weekend full-circle.
