What is The Deli?
The Deli is an independent publication and website that focuses on local indie music scenes and emerging artists (from rock to folk, from punk to indie pop, with a little bit of hip hop). It currently publishes a printed magazine about the NYC music scene and has daily updated, separate webpages tackling the new emerging music in cities like NYC, LA, SF, Chicago, Nashville, Austin, Boston, and Portland.

Mission Statement
The Deli Philadelphia is a resource for Philadelphia musical artists and fans. We want to be a place for bands to share their music with others, and for fans to make their own decisions about what local music they enjoy.

CD Submission Policy
The Deli Philadelphia only reviews music from artists based in Philadelphia and surroundings.

At this time we only accept digital submission through our CD Submission System here.

For added exposure, you can post mp3s and a blurb about your band on the local Open Blog [this feature will be back soon].
