New music festival coming to Burlington County Fairgrounds June 11

A new music festival designed to benefit children’s hospitals will debut on June 11, 2016 at the Burlington County Fairgrounds in New Jersey. The Promise Music Festival will donate 50 percent of the inaugural concert’s net proceeds to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Founder and saxophonist, Nick Steffanacci says the idea for producing a grass roots fundraising festival came about when saw how music transformed the lives of the special needs kids he taught as a music instructor.

“Music has taken me around the world and I could not be happier to start giving back,” he shared.

The festival will feature seven artists, including Stefanacci, Philadelphia’s own pop star, Dave Patten (best known for his collaborations with rapper Meek Mill), singer-songwriters, Bobby Syvarth, Sharif and Lauren Davidson, plus comedian Liz Faublas and DJ K Tunes.

Eight food trucks will be on hand to sate appetites and attendees are encouraged to bring sunscreen, blankets and beach umbrellas (no alcohol, please).

Saturday, June 11 from 1-6 p.m.Admission: $30 per car (cash only)
