Merging music and innovation, Thrival Festival is set to showcase local thought leaders, national entertainers, and the city of Pittsburgh.
Looking ahead to September, Thrival Festival is expanding in every way. From the size of the venue and the number of musical acts to an expanded focus on innovation and entrepreneurship programming, this year’s event is unlike anything Pittsburgh has seen before.
Thrival 2017 Music Lineup
Featuring 19 acts over two days at the Carrie Furnace, the music portion of the festival features both local performers and national acts.
This year’s headliners are led by Pittsburgh’s own Wiz Khalifa and Logic, the 27-year-old rapper out of Maryland.
Other acts making an appearance include the Irish alt-indie darlings, Two Door Cinema Club, Detroit’s electronic funk outfit, GRiZ, and Los Angeles-based Guatemalan American DJ, Carnage, will both headline their own stages.
Riding the momentum of his Billboard Top 10 hit, “iSpy” SuperDuperKyle will come through for his first performance in Pittsburgh.
Chart-topper and multi-platinum artist, Kiiara, veteran DJ, TokiMonsta, Sirius Alt Nation mainstays, Missio, and Grammy-nominated DJ, Steve James, are all first-time Thrival artists, joined by Harts, Echos, Circa Waves, Welshly Arms, Michigander, The Garment District, Byron Nash & Plan B, Rachel B., and JRod.
