There’s something about a summer music festival that just feels right. It’s even better when it’s the WYEP Summer Music Festival! The big event is back for another awesome show in Schenley Plaza on June 25th. The bands hit the stage at 3pm. It’s a day of free live music from WYEP! Summer is officially here!

The show will be headlined by Jukebox the Ghost. The band is currently on tour supporting their new album “Cheers”. The trio blends a mix of piano-driven feel good rock with pop hooks and intimate lyrics. The new record has some standout tracks including the excellent new song “Wasted” featuring Andrew McMahon. The catchy sing along chorus of “we were wild, we were wasted” will have the crowd moving to the music. Everyone can relate to that! It should be a cool moment during the show.

This year’s lineup features a variety of genres, including Louisiana soul rock act Seratones, fresh off their performance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Their upbeat new funky single “Good Day” has singer A.J. Haynes belting powerful vocals that will have the field of fans dancing. 

A number of great Pittsburgh acts will also be performing: singer/songwriter Bill Deasy, folk rock group The Living Street, neo-soul artist Sierra Sellers, and pop act singer/songwriter Ashley Marina, known for her appearance on America’s Got Talent which has over 100 million views.

WYEP has always been supportive of breaking emerging acts. Anytime you turn it on, you’re bound to hear music from a diverse range of artists. The thing about WYEP is that they play artists that you normally wouldn’t hear on the radio. They also spotlight a mix of local artists too. You’ll get all that and more at the fest.  

The festival began in 1998 before moving to Schenley in 2008. This is the first WYEP Summer festival since 2019. It’s going to be a party! Because WYEP is where the music matters!
