Rent a performance space in Philadelphia

Performances come in all kinds of flavors, making the venues you can choose from even more diverse. Sometimes you need an intimate space for a solo pianist or poet to show their latest work. And for an internationally acclaimed orchestra, a professional concert venue for thousands is the best choice. Fortunately, Philadelphia has both of these options and everything in between.
The performance spaces here have flexible terms, ranging from hourly rentals to week-long bookings for repeat performances. You'll also find a long list of amenities that will ensure the comfort and enjoyment of your guests. Outdoor venues with seating for thousands are an option, as are historic indoor venues with cocktail style arrangements!

Unique performance spaces in Philadelphia

If you're looking to hold a truly memorable performance then the venue should be as unique as the performers. Spaces that feature bold natural light, elegant interiors, sumptuous decor elements, fine art wall hangings, and other elements will all affect how people remember your performance.
Many of Philadelphia's major attractions are more than just places to learn or have fun; they are also event centers that host performances. These include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Dilworth Park, and the Fillmore Philadelphia. The Fillmore is a major live music venue, with separate venues hosting 3,000 people and a separate club with a stage, bar, and 450 seats for smaller events! Unique performance spaces like The Dell Music Center offer an amphitheater that seats up to 5,300 guests. It's hosted A-list celebrities over the decades for performances, including Bill Cosby, Ella Fitzgerald, and Gladys Knight!
For more intimate performances, check out the historic hotels, lounges, and restaurants of downtown Philadelphia. They have space for live music and DJs to set up, as well as catering for meals and bars for drinks. Whether you're planning a wedding with live entertainment or want to host a dance party in Philadelphia, the performance spaces here are on par with any other major US city!

Performance and rehearsal spaces in Philadelphia

Rehearsals are practice performances that lead up to the final show. In order to make them feel more real it's a good idea to choose a performance space that includes most of the amenities you'd expect of the final show's venue. These include professional lighting, acoustics, and a spacious stage for the rehearsal. Once the true performance happens, your performers will be fully accustomed to the light and sound qualities of the venue!
