You are here

Porchfest is coming on Saturday.  Over 240 groups. 

The dynamic map of all the bands and listing is here now  But we will be switching over to a static map and listing on Friday the 10th.    Special thanks to Kirk Israel and Moe Blumenstiel for help with web design work. 

For those attending Porchfest, please take public transportation to Somerville and then walk.   

And we are wanting to support a good cause this year.   All proceds contributed by the audience and bands will support the Somerville Community Corporation.   Also if you want to make a direct donation through Venmo please do now:  @Somerville-Community 

Please give, if everyone gave a little it would add up to a lot. 

A big congrats to all the musicians who will be performing.   Enjoy, be safe, be respectful of others. 

In 2011, the Council created a decentralized music festival--Porchfest.  Perhaps you’ve sat on your porch and overheard a neighbor strumming guitar on another porch?  Porchfest takes this idea and multiplies it. This is not a festival per se but rather a community event where Somervillians share their love of playing and listening to music.  Think of Somerville Open Studios, which is for visual artists, but for music.
