Pittsburgh’s Northside Music Festival

Pittsburgh’s Northside Music Festival

One of America’s Largest Free Music Festivals Returns July 14-16, 2023

The North Side’s Deutschtown neighborhood has a new name and a new look for their storied free live music festival in 2023. This year's Northside Music Festival (formerly the Deutschtown Music Festival) will be rocking with hundreds of free bands across indoors and outdoor venues during their signature three-day event. This free festival will also include 100 art vendors and more than 30 food trucks.

The annual, non-profit music festival has quickly become one of Pittsburgh’s favorite summer events as a great way to support and promote local bands and bring the North Side community together.

Lineup & Band Schedule

The thriving Pittsburgh music scene is center stage for the Northside Music Festival with local artists including genres for all types of music fans. Bands perform in one hour timeslots, making it easy to enjoy a country artist at one venue and walk to the next venue for some jazz or indie rock. 

Check back soon for the 2023 Lineup

Parking & Shuttles

With more than 20,000 guests expected at this free festival, make your plans now to avoid looking for parking. Use public transit when possible, and use the Go Mobile PGH app for real time parking availability.
