Physical aspects of the venue are great. Good seating, reasonably priced drinks, clean bathrooms. That's where it ends. The sound quality is terrible. Don't waste your money on tickets. The sound is muddled and garbled. You couldn't understand a single lyric. It was extremely disappointing....More

Excellent venue to see your favorite band! We were able to get really close to see Greta Van Fleet!!! Best concert we've seen in a long time. Parking wasn't bad either for Philly!!

The Electric Factory is a good venue to see a show. It is spacious ands good sound. Old Crow was terrific last night and put on great show. I would go back.

I saw Lord Huron and it was a fantastic show. The venue was good. They were organized and got everyone quickly and without fuss. The sound and lights were really good. I recommend place for any concert you want to see.

Going to the bathroom? Get ready for a guy employed here that thinks he can read your mind to grab you and push you. That guy is lucky my wife won't let me go back over there.

I love the decor of this place. Classic warehouse turned into venue with spacious dance floor and good sound system. One issue I have is the drinks being one level above you in the 21+ section, eliminating any convenience

This venue did a great job of providing an alcohol free space for an all-ages show. Wow the sound system is great. They could sell ear plugs for us old folks that forgot them.
