"There is a unique “friendliness” to Walla Fest...a feeling that everyone there whether artist, musician, or spectator is participating in a collaborative event." - iradiophilly, 2015

"If you ask anyone who’s been, the folks at Walla Fest are notorious for their special brand of mystical DIY vibe curation—housed in an old theatre, the festival features weird lights, strange corridors, taxidermy, good books just laying around, performance art, amazing bands, and random places to nap." - Raz Robinson, Impose, 2015

"While those early days certainly influenced the direction of Walla, the showcase is not defined by its location. Instead, the event is a way to share and celebrate art of all sounds and styles; originally created by their friends, now created by their peers at large." - Julie Miller, The Key, 2015

"A two-day art and music showcase extraordinare nurturing creativity and the congregation of kind, open and keen individuals...they appreciate the low-key suburban feel of an intimate and engaging gathering you may have thought to take place in a big-city." - Athy Lia,  Steep Sounds , 2014

"It takes place each year in the town’s Centre Theatre — an easily accessible, old-school theater that holds around 100 people. Because of its intimacy and displacement from the city, Walla Fest supports a special, laid back environment of artist-to-audience interaction and creative fluidity." 
Scary Pretty , 2014

"It's a fest of dopeness, unity, creativity, fresh minds, and positive youth doing great things." 
Marcus Branch, Skltn Magazine , 2013

"The next generation of Philadelphia music and art" - Philadelphia Inquirer , 2013

"It’s giving young, local artists and musicians a chance to showcase their work to not only their friends, but the whole community." - Matt, Bikini Island , 2012
