THE FILLMORE Philadelphia

The original Fillmore is an iconic music venue, first opened in San Francisco in 1965. As a venue, The Fillmore was the focal point for the psychedelic music scene during the 1960s and '70s, helping to launch the careers of acts such as The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Santana, The Doors, Hot Tuna and many, many others which helped it grow into the legend it is today. We look forward to honoring the spirit of those historic performances because attending an event at The Fillmore offers not only an opportunity to listen to great live music, but to participate in a cultural and history-making music event shared between artists and fans.

The Fillmore Philadelphia is a spectacular, multi-faceted 25,000-square-foot venue conveniently located 2.5 miles from the Convention Center in the lively Fishtown district. Completely renovated and home to a beautiful and state-of the-art 2,500-capacity live music club, this versatile space is the perfect blend of rock and elegance, both classic and cutting edge. The venue also features a club within a club, the 450-capacity Foundry complete with its own bar, stage and top-of-the-line production located on the second floor of The Fillmore.
