The first ‘Netflix and chill’ festival is happening soon and it’s not what you think.

‘Netflix and chill’ is a term that surfaced very recently, in the chaotic summer of 2015. The term is a teen/post-teen euphemism that refers to fooling around on the couch while streaming something on Netflix in the background. Now there’s a festival named after this phenomenon and people are all for it.

The social app Knock Knock is hosting the first ever “Netflix and Chill Festival” at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. The event is highly anticipated by many and expects a great turnout. In case your mind is drifting towards the gutter we’re here to help you backtrack. True to its title, the festival will very literally host a Netflix screening of the movie ‘Knocked Up‘ with free drinks and popcorn.


If you’re still not convinced that this is a great idea, the organizers have also invited Pope Francis, so if you’re one of the lucky attendees at the Netflix and Chill Festival, there’s a chance you might meet him. Stay tuned for more news.
