For the first time ever, HiJinx festival will be taking place right in the center of the City of Brotherly Love. Occupying four city blocks, Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Convention Center will host the Northeast’s largest indoor music festival on December 28th and 29th, 2018. The massive L-shaped building, spanning 1,000,000 square feet right in the heart of Philadelphia, is no stranger to hosting large scale events.
