Dell Music Center
The Dell Music Center, located in scenic East Fairmount Park, is Philadelphia’s premier outdoor entertainment and education venue. Formerly the Robin Hood Dell East, this open-air amphitheater is managed by the City of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and is the fourth largest performance venue in Philadelphia. The Dell has 5,284 reserved seats and can hold an additional 600 people on the lawn.
The Dell has been providing world-class entertainment to Philadelphians for the past 39 years. It is a municipally-funded and operated amphitheatre, established to provide high-quality, diverse, cultural entertainment inside the community at an affordable cost. The Dell has hosted many nationally and internationally prominent artists.
These legendary performances have included everyone from musical icons like Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Cosby, Billy Eckstine and Sarah Vaughn; to classic soul singers like Patti Labelle, The Whispers, Frankie Beverly, Jill Scott and Teena Marie. Native Philadelphians have a long-standing love affair with the Dell. Many have attended summer concerts in the park since they were small children and have since introduced new generations of friends and family members to the venue.
