In the summer, there’s never a lack of things to do. From the pool, picnics, vacations, and festivals, there always seems to be plenty of fun, outdoor events happening, especially here in Pittsburgh. One of the most fun things to do in the summer? Going to concerts! Live music and the outdoors are two peas in a pod, and Pittsburgh isn’t lacking in music options this summer! If going to concerts and finding new music is your summer goal, here are a few fun things to check out this summer.
Dollar Bank Three Rivers Art Festival
The annual art festival doesn’t just focus on visual art- music is a big part of this event, happening June 5th to 14th, with June 6th being dedicated to bluegrass. Multiple stages offer live bands throughout the day, so there is bound to be something for everyone. In addition to music, the stages also feature poetry readings and dance performances. This is a great way to get to know local artists and discover your new favorite band. Who wouldn’t enjoy ten days of free music and art?
WYEP’s Summer Music Festival
June 27th, Schenley Plaza is bound to be packed. The (free!) WYEP music festival is a great way to get outside and enjoy some live, up-and-coming music. Local teen bands are featured during the day, and the evening headliner is Martin Sexton, with openers The Lone Bellow, Kopecky, and local band Brightside.
Jergel’s Rhythm Grille
Located in Warrendale, Jergel’s is a huge restaurant, bar, and music venue all in one. They feature some form of live entertainment every night, including regional and national touring artists, local bands, themed nights, tribute bands, and even the occasional comedian.
Jam on Walnut
If you’re looking for a music festival that also gives back, the Jam on Walnut is for you. Three Saturdays each summer, Think Shadyside blocks off Walnut Street for a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation benefit concert. Each Saturday attracts about 5,000 people, so it’s bound to be huge.
Pittsburgh JazzLive International Festival
The annual jazz festival is described as “laid-back, intimate, and inviting.” Jazz music is both relaxing and catchy, and it’s not uncommon to see people dancing along with the music at this festival.
This quaint little place looks more like an old mansion than a museum, and it’s the perfect stop for anyone interested in both music and history. This museum is the home to 85 antique automatic instruments- instruments that play by themselves. From pianos, violins, and banjos, this museum has plenty to see. What makes it most interesting, however, are the number of secret passages, hidden caves, and the indoor pool.
