The photos are up from yesterday's event (September 4th, 2017), and we're still working on the digitized DJ sets. Thanks to all that attended, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2018!

Posted Monday September 4th, 2017

The weather looks like it's going to cooperate with us this year, with a sunny day and temperatures creeping up to the low 80's during the afternoon.

We've double-confirmed all of our DJ's and timeslots, and hope to present an eclectic soundtrack to while away your last day of summer! Don't forget that we'll be asking for donations to help cover the costs of this free event, we appreciate your support!

We should be up and running by noon, and we'll be playing music until sunset tonight (7:30pm)! Bring Good Friends, Blankets, a Picnic, Good Attitudes, Frisbees & Hackysacks - Don't worry about the Cost - Just Hang Free!

On Monday, September 4th - Labor Day, 2017, we'll be having our first Hang Free of the 2017 season. We expect to be up and running by noon on Monday, and going until sunset (probably around 7pm). Note, we will be at our new location in Fairmount Park, behind the Please Touch Museum and Memorial Hall in West Philadelphia. We'll be at a lovely spot located on Cedar Grove Drive (Link to Google Map). There's a small lot for parking, and easy bike and walking access.

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. It should be a lovely day to enjoy Philadelphia's gorgeous public parks with friends and loved ones.

This Labor Day Monday our DJ guests include the usual equipment-dragging residents, DJ Linda Leigh spinning an extra-long tag-team set with her partner in all things auditory DJ D.R.E.O.. We'll also be joined by plenty of new faces and some old ones as well. New to us this year will be DJ Zenzo bringing his unique sounds to our event. We'll also be joined by long-time DJ and Philadelphia noisemaker Jack Tripper who last graced us in 2014. DJ Vernon, half of The Dance Project will be setting the mood for you. Wrapping up our day will be a another Philadelphia DJ godfather: DJ Big Daddy Blake! We look forward to hearing this powerhouse lineup on this (hopefully) warm autumn day.

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 our Monday event predicts a 85 degree day and a 7:27pm sunset. Please check this website on Monday for our noon announcement of event weather plans! We will not send any email updates beyond our event announcement a week prior.
