Philly Rising Open Mic

Philly Rising Open Mic

World Cafe Live’s Philly Rising Open Mic is back in full swing! We’ve partnered with local movers & shakers REC Philly to bring you an evening of musical collaboration, inspiration, and networking hosted by Gabrielle Chapman. Each month, we’ll welcome pre-selected performers from every genre to step up to the mic, along with a Featured Artist hand-picked by REC Philly. Whether you’re a performer, a supporter, an industry professional, or just a music lover – Philly Rising Open Mic is the place to be every first Tuesday. Our restaurant opens at 5pm (happy hour until 7pm!), and performances start at 8pm. Admission is FREE and all ages are welcome.

Submissions are accepted up to one week before each month’s Open Mic (submission for October will close 9/24). If selected, you’ll be notified with an approximate time slot. Please check in with our host at least 30 minutes before your time slot. Each performer is allowed 2-3 songs, or a maximum of 10 minutes.

We encourage you to sign up in advance, but there will be spots available for those day-of deciders! Walk-up performers will be chosen on a lottery basis. Please check in with our host when you arrive to enter.

REC Philly, an equitable ecosystem for independent creators, is on a mission to provide the resources, strategies and opportunities for growth to the creative economy. One part creative incubator, one part creative agency, REC has designed and developed a scalable model for independent creators to build sustainable careers in their hometown.
