At Fest, a fun and music-driven documentary, shares the stories of the people who enjoy, build, and perform at one one of the oldest, largest music festivals in North America. Filmed at the 50th annual Philadelphia Folk Festival in 2011 as an unofficial, independent feature, At Fest captures the music, love and family of this time-honored tradition that's both familiar and new each year. Enjoy the music of HogMaw, the Philadelphia Jug Band, Hoots & Hellmouth, David Wax Museum, and many more as you get to know a few of the 8,000 campers, 2,500 volunteers, 70 performing acts and 20,000 friends you haven't met. Real Folk. Real Music. At Fest.
