This Labor Day weekend, the massive musical celebration is taking over downtown Philly for two days full of culture and music.

1. Bring your American pride
Bust out those American flag bandanas and rock all your red, white and blue at this Labor Day party. This celebration is all about Merica’.
2. Bring cleansing
You know those small portable pouches with the pre-moistened cloths? Bring those. These serve as a quick refresher for those moments where you’re super hot and sweaty. We all know that the portable toilet experience isn’t always 100% reliable when it comes to the TP situation. These on-the-go clothes will do the job!
3. Bring a portable charger
Grab a cheap portable phone charger and enjoy all the battery needed for your social media world. Although a pass for a two-day locker with a universal charger is available, sometimes you just can’t leave without creating the ultimate Insta Story.
4. Plan your transit accordingly
Transit issues are not fun, so plan them accordingly. Full closure of the site, as well as the inner and outer roadways of Ben Franklin Parkway from N. 20th Street to the Art Museum, are expected to run from Friday, September 1 through Tuesday, September 5. See the street closing FAQ page for additional details.
5. Try a cheesesteak
You’re in the home of its creation, and you can’t leave it without trying one (hopefully more) of the famous Philly cheesesteaks. If you’re a first-timer, your rookie ways could cause some public attention, so grab a local and ask about the proper ordering process first.
