In case you were not aware, the Overwatch League Grand Finals will be played in Philadelphia on Sunday, September 29th. God willing, our guys, the Philadelphia Fusion, will win the title on home soil, then we’ll parade down Broad Street as Carpe crushes beers on the double decker bus.
Another cool thing about that weekend is that Comcast Spectacor is hosting a huge outdoor party at the Wells Fargo Center, with a Saturday concert headlined by world famous DJ Martin Garrix. You’re probably familiar with his “Summer Days” song, featuring Macklemore and the dude from Fall Out Boy, which has 20 million Youtube views.
Interestingly enough, this is the first outdoor concert the Wells Fargo Center has hosted in 22 years. The only other outdoor jawn to take place at the venue was back in 1997, when Metallica played the parking lot of what was then called the CoreStates Center.
The entire gig exists online, so enjoy after the jump:

Martin Garrix has risen to global stardom in pop as well as electronic circles – and yet he’s far from being done. Dance music’s freshest talent has headlined festivals around the globe, founded a label and mentored other artists and won the #1 spot in DJ Mag’s Top 100 three times in a row.
Garrix’ musical achievements have not gone unnoticed. They were awarded with two MTV EMAs in 2016, holding the #1 spot in the 2017 and 2018 DJ Mag Top 100, a ‘Man of Today’ accolade from GQ, a spot among Forbes’ ’30 Under 30’ and another at Billboard’s ‘EDM Power Players’. Last but not least, he performed at Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show twice, as the first Dutch guest ever and also used his guitar for an unplugged version of ‘Dreamer’ with MIKE YUNG on Good Morning America.
A naturally outgoing person and a born entertainer, Martin has also been a welcome guest at some of the world’s most important stages. He has headlined at festivals that most musicians can only dream of including Coachella, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza and Ultra Music Festival. Next to that, he also locked down residencies at two of the world’s most prestigious clubs: Ushuaıä Ibiza and Omnia Las Vegas.
Garrix continues to produce diverse sound, most recently with his 2019 releases, ‘No Sleep’ and the summer smash ‘Summer Days’ with Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.
