SENSORiUM Music and Arts Festival is back for its third year this August 24th, and the stakes are raised with a Phase 1 lineup that is sure to turn heads. Standing alongside homegrown heroes Tweed, Wax Future, and (Lotus bassist Jesse Miller) Beard o Bees is headliner TOBACCO –the frontman of Philly experimental electronic band Black Moth Super Rainbow.

However where the drool started dripping from our mouths was the mention of an enticing lineup of The Rust producers. That includes sets from the highly anticipated 5AM Trio, Smigonaut, MALAKAI, Wessanders, and even scratch-daddy Tygris.

Fortunately for all, Agent Zero’s livetronica is making a comeback this year as well, rounding out a fire first lineup announcement for SENSORiUM’s third year running. It’s hard to imagine what else they have in store for the next phase, but if the hype from last year’s event is anything to go off of, the minds behind SENSORiUM are cooking up an event for the books.


The one-day festival is Philly’s end of summer bash celebrating the city’s thriving music and arts scene. A total of 23 acts will be featured on three stages along with art galleries, art installations, and craft and food vendors.
