REVIEW OF
LOVE FROM PHILLY

(Oval XP Soft Opening 6/11/22)

I was at the festival and thought it was amazing- especially since it was the first event for this format. Everything about it was awesome; in particular, the vibe that I got from being out in the audience. The crowd was diverse as one could possibly hope for in a city that's as much of a tapestry as you and I know Philly to be. There were some folks as old as me and some as young as late teens- all dancing and moving along with the beats. They ranged the spectrum of race, class, ethnicity, nationality, background, and gender identity, and the pure elation of the families who were there with their children was amazing.

The space itself is breathtaking; backed by the Art Museum and the steps, along with the lights of the ferris wheel which added to the electricity of the moment. The pop-up gardens and food trucks on the south side offered access to the music and vibe without having to be on the actual dance floor. The north side was intriguing with the tents and grass which would make blanket spreading comfortable, like the Mann used to do! The Oval itself was welcoming and friendly and I got the feeling of joy from all the people there. The range of performances was inclusive and top notch; your choices were incredible. The empathy and exhibition of Brotherly & Sisterly Love was apparent from the performers, the crew and it spread throughout the crowd.
