Following a "Blind Faith" promotion earlier this month - where music fans could buy festival passes without knowing who exactly they'd be seeing - Thrival Innovation + Music Festival
has announced some of the performers appearing at this year's event, happening Sept. 20-24.
More acts will be added to the schedule in the coming months, but headliners include electropop band Chvrches
; electronic music elder-statesmen Thievery Corporation
; long-standing indie-rockers Metric
, funk ensemble Lettuce
, indie-dance group Rumblebucket
; Sir the Baptist
, who irreverently blends gospel, r&b and club music; cheery pop band Wild Child
; and locally-based singer-songwriter Brooke Annibale
. Early Bird tickets are currently available.
Launched by Pittsburgh non-profit Thrill Mill in 2013, Thrival also features a series of innovation-focused programs on a variety of themes, which this year will include AuthentiCity, The Ripple Effect and Lost and Found.
