There are still plenty of looks we have to show you from around Musikfest before closing the book on this year’s festival for good.

We have a saying around here at LVU: A little rain can’t stop this train!
Indeed, the forecast for today isn’t favorable, but this is the last Saturday of Musikfest for 51 weeks. You aren’t going to let Mother Nature stop you from living your best life, are you?
We didn’t think so. Let’s go!
Musikfest Five-Point Preview: August 11, 2018
We dedicated our Day 6 Musikfest coverage to mostly local performers, many of whom were performing on the festival’s South Side on Wednesday night.
The skies cleared on Saturday and, despite flooding issues putting part of Musikfest’s North Side out of commission, there was still plenty of ‘Festing to be done on Day 2.
Philly-based indie rockers Ceramic Animal are no strangers to the Lehigh Valley or Musikfest. The foursome will perform at their fourth Musikfest this year, with three performances (and a main stage opening slot for Kesha) on tap.
We caught up with the guys, to get a veteran perspective on the nation’s largest free outdoor music festival.
Patrons looking for convenient and close access to all the music, food, and fun of Musikfest have more options than ever this year.
If you’re in the Lehigh Valley, chances are you already know what awaits you at the end of this week. It’s time for Musikfest!
As usual, we’ll have a Five-Point Preview each day of the festival, highlighting the free stage performances that you need to experience. However, there’s plenty else happening this week off of festival grounds that you should know about (hello, #LVUFirstFriday).
Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week!

Jason Mraz, Brantley Gilbert, Jim Gaffigan, Kesha, Marc Broussard, Colony House, Marshall Crenshaw, Squirrel Nut Zippers, the Original Wailers, We are Scientists and !!! are among the nearly 400 performers taking the stage as part of the 35th edition of Musikfest, the nation’s largest free-admission music festival. The event, set for Aug. 3-12 in Bethlehem, Pa., will feature music at 16 of its 18 total venues, with more than 500 free music and art performances during its 10-day run.
On Friday morning in a light drizzle, nearly a hundred avid gamers waited outside the Allentown Agri-Plex for the start of PinFest 2018 – the Lehigh Valley’s annual pinball show. The expo featured over 300 pinball, arcade, and slot machines, as well as parts, accessories, and memorabilia. The early crowd had their pick of which machines to play first, as thousands more patrons would stream through the doors during the two-day event. Each machine was set to “free play,” so players simply paid one $20 admission price and had access to games and the on-site flea market.
It took me a minute to realize that one of my favorite weekends of the year has finally arrived. Through sitting in traffic on 222 (three times), to making sure I got to LAUNCH Headquarters on Prince St. to pick up my badge, I had a busy and eventful afternoon.
Once my feet touched down in downtown Lancaster, however, I knew I was in for a good time.
