Plan to visit Pittsburgh this fall to enjoy two innovative and entertaining festivals.
The Thrival Innovation & Music Festival takes place Sept. 13-14 at Bakery Square in Pittsburgh’s East End. Thrival is a hometown twist on SXSW featuring 15 first-class international, national and local music acts and filled with cutting-edge ideas and innovation events.
Then from Oct. 1-5, take part in VIA Festival 2014, a creative roadmap through Pittsburgh’s diverse neighborhoods and scenes. VIA brings together local, national and international talent for collaborative audio-visual performances, exhibitions, workshops and more. The VIA Festival takes place simultaneously in Chicago this year as well.
