Pittsburgh hosts its upcoming music festival, Thrival Festival, on the grounds of old Carrie Furnaces, making the festival not only a destination of EDM lovers, but of Pittsburgh history.
With the grounds serving as a constant reminder of the past Pittsburgh, the music served as a prediction of the future for the budding arts community found in the Steel City.
The dazzling line-up had something for everyone, from Two Door Cinema Club to hometown hero, Wiz Khalifa – who not only performed the closing set of the two day festival, but also took time to speak to community leaders about the future he sees for his favourite city.
It doesn’t matter how dull the weather is as the people of Pittsburgh will make any event with music worthwhile. I cannot wait for the next festival.
