Leaving Center City, go down West River Drive past BOTH lights, and just after you go under the Strawberry Mansion Bridge (metal structure with a glowing neon light underneath it), we're on the left in the large grassy field. We'll be the ones with a small white tent and DJ's playing music. We should also have this banner:


This is about a half-mile back from Fells Bridge. If you drive, there is parking in two lots (on the left and right sides) just ahead, one in front of the West River Drive pavilion, and the other just across the street.

It's around 4 miles from center city, so why not bike/rollerblade out? Wanna see a map?

The weather looks like it's going to cooperate with us this year, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 80's.

We've double-confirmed all of our DJ's and timeslots, and hope to present an eclectic soundtrack to while away your first day of summer! We're glad to have the great help from Ricky Modglin, who'll be assisting us with transporting all of our PA gear, and saving us from renting a not-so-cheap hourly van.

We should be up and running by 12:30, and we'll be playing music until 8pm tonight! Bring Good Friends, Blankets, a Picnic, Good Attitudes, Frisbees & Hackysacks - Don't worry about the Cost - Just Hang Free!

On Monday, May 26th - Memorial Day, 2014, we'll be having our first Hang Free of the 2014 season. We expect to be up and running by noon on Monday, and going until dark (probably around 8pm). Directions to our location in Fairmount Park are at the right.

Hang Free is a free, bi-annual outdoor party that occurs in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. We provide DJ's spinning music in an outdoor, casual atmosphere, where there is no cost to hang and listen.

This Memorial Day Monday our DJ guests include the usual equipment-dragging resident, DJ Under along with first-time guest Sir Phillpotts, spinning an early reggae set. Returning from years past, DJ Argo will be playing Brazillian soul & house. Old school legend Maggy's Rooftop Aerial will be bringing a special 60's/70's/summer of love/woodstock/hippy/haight-asbury set. Wrapping up our day, longtime supporter DJ Linda Leigh spinning an extra-long (Latin, Moomba, Deep House) tag-team set with her friend DJ D.R.E.O..

Each Hang Free guarantees some sport & fun (such as touch football or frisbee or volleyball) with friends and soon-to-be friends. Over the years, we've become more pet-friendly and child friendly, offering play for all ages and a friendly welcoming crowd. Plus, you get an eclectic soundtrack to picnic your day away with Philadelphia's hippest DJ's and sound makers.

It's hard to say a week away, but the weather predicted for next Monday predicts sunny 81 degree weather, and a 8:19pm sunset. It should be a lovely day to enjoy Philadelphia's gorgeous public parks with friends and loved ones.
