The outdoor venue and world-class amphitheater, affectionately referred to as “The Dell”, will operate on a modified schedule starting in June and continuing until the end of the calendar year, hosting graduations, concerts and community events.

Located at 2400 Strawberry Mansion Drive, the outdoor cultural treasure has been providing diverse cultural entertainment in Philadelphia for more than 45 years.

The Dell is also anticipating welcoming musical guests back for the 2021 Essence of Entertainment concert series.

“The moment we have all longed for is finally here, another step towards life being normal, a chance to gather with family and friends in a safe, outdoor, spacious area,” said Susan Slawson, General Manager, Dell Music Center. “The Dell is thrilled to welcome residents back to join us to experience the power of music, community, and connection at Philadelphia’s premier outdoor amphitheater.”

Special events can resume as early as June 7. The venue will be available for hire and the outdoor amphitheater has a capacity of 5,200 people.

On Thursday, August 5, the Dell will roll out their Essence of Entertainment concert series.
