2014 Festival in the Works
SEPTEMBER 17, 2014
What's loud, local and lots of fun? The 5th Annual Before the Bridge Music Festival of course. Recently given the green light by organizers, this year’s festival promises to be bigger than ever with expanded vendors, “celebrity” appearances, DJ sets and of course, bands from Philadelphia to New York City.
This year’s fest is being moved off the avenue into the open space at the corner of Woodlawn and Haddon Avenues as a change of scenery and to use the street closure for an expanded vendor area.
The organizers are keeping the music line-up quiet to ensure a more hyped announcement on October 1. “In previous years, I think the promotions in September got a little lost in all the back to school craziness towards the end of summer,” said Chris Rocco, co-owner of Grooveground and festival member. “This year, we’re announcing the date now and posting the details virally a bit at a time to keep people interested and excited.”
Even with the line-up still coming together, some things are certain. Before the Bridge will continue the long time tradition of Collingswood's support of local and independent music. It will present a gamut of genres that bridge the musical gaps between indie, folk, punk, rock, and electronica and promises to deliver a blistering diversity that everyone can enjoy without ever having to cross the bridge. BTB not only exposes up-and-coming musicians, but brings renowned regional artists to Collingswood’s doorstep–and best of all, it's free too the public!

Well folks, thanks to many people, another Before the Bridge Festival went off without a hitch. It was a great time indeed and we want to thank those who without their support and dedication, the festival would not be what it is today!
We're On The Move!
OCTOBER 10, 2013
In light of the expected periods of rain on Saturday, the Before the Bridge Music Festival will be moving inside to "The Factory" at 13 Fern Avenue, only 5 blocks down Haddon Avenue in Downtown Collingswood. This is a beautiful space for live music and we are so grateful the ownership has made it available for the show to go on.
