Global Fusion Festival returns with RHAPSODY
Global Fusion Festival & Week presents RHAPSODY. For its 6th year, Philly brings the world together again this summer with an electrifying week of non-stop entertainment that draws diverse communities to celebrate the “cultural fusion” of the world. Fusion-inspired restaurant discounts, drink specials and performances take place across Philadelphia all week, wrapping-up on Saturday, July 21st with the LARGEST, one-day festival in the City at Penn’s Landing, Great Plaza. I mean who else doesn't enjoy a free concert at Penn's Landing; I know I do.
This year's theme "Rhapsody," represents the ecstatic expression GFF creates as Philadelphia's unique cultures unite for one week, in the spirit of love and unity. During Global Fusion Week, locals and visitors take advantage of fusion-themed drink specials and restaurant discounts at numerous participating restaurants and bars throughout the city. "Fusion-inspired" performances showcasing the diversity of our region are also held at select Center City venues. Previous Latino performers have included Grupo Oro Solido, Huey Dunbar, J-King and Maximan and Brenda K. Starr. I wonder who will represent the Latinos this year?
