The WYEP Summer Music Festival will take place on Saturday, June 27, at Schenley Plaza, starting at 3 p.m.
Schenley Plaza, restored in 2006 from an asphalt parking lot, is operated by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. The area provides a clean, green space for entertainment and gathering, and serves as an entry-point to Schenley Park.
Live music from reimagination bands Bridget McCrum and The Annajames Band will play from 3 to 5. The main lineup featuring Martin Sexton, The Lone Bellow, Kopecky, and Brightside will begin at 6:00. A schedule of appearances can be found here.
The I Made It! Market, a traveling indie crafts market, will return to the WYEP Music Festival for another year. IMI Market partners with neighborhood, community, arts, and nonprofit organizations to raise awareness and funds to assist in improving communities. Here is a list of artists that will be present at the Music Festival.
A family area will be available between 3 and 6 with assorted activities, crafts, and educational booths for people of all ages and abilities.
