Walla Fest is a small, two day music and art festival in the outer Philly suburb of Norristown, PA. The event was started in 2011 by Makeba Robinson, Yesenia Bello and Anthony Buitakes and takes place each year in the town’s Center Theatre — an easily accessible, old-school theater that holds around 100 people. Because of its intimacy and displacement from the city, Walla Fest supports a special, laid back environment of artist-to-audience interaction and creative fluidity, encouraging “collaboration” via the simple act of “dancing, looking, listening, sharing, talking, and eating together.”

This year Walla Fest is happening July 5th-6th and will be headlined by The Snails and Alex G. The Porches. 2011 tour doc., “Being Alone,” will be screening the 6th, and a bunch of other really cool bands, art and food will all be present. “It’s gonna be a good one because we’ll also have tacos from a local restaurant and baked goods from a local farm” — Makeba Robinson.

Walla’s got a lot up their sleeve — there’s also going to be a surprise sunset performance, these earrings for sale and Scary Pretty selling zines/taking pictures– so come check it out, we’re excited.
