It’s been a week since the Hip-Hop giant Wiz Khalifa has walked the stage of his hometown. A week since GRiZ turned the giant field of rock and dried up grass into a huge party. A week since Pittsburgh was turned into a state of Carnage. In case you missed it, it has been a week since Thrival Festival.
Pittsburgh’s Thrival Festival has been the host for many different artists such as CHVRCHES, Panic! at The Disco and Wiz Khalifa. Normally when you hear about a music festival, you say “What kind of festival is that?” but with Thrival, this question does not have a solid answer. Thrival seems to experiment with different types of music, going from more of a rock vibe to this year’s EDM/ Hip-Hop. But Thrival is not only about music. Thrival also hosts a couple days of Innovation, which this year were themed around humans and technology. These are important talks that give people to share information and knowledge about things happening within the groundbreaking times of AI that we live in. Thrival’s impact on the city goes much farther than the music, but the music catches the attention of people who may not know about the innovation side.
This year they hosted artists such as Logic, Carnage, GRiZ, Kiiara, and hometown hero Wiz Khalifa, as well as many others. We covered Day 1 of the festival, and Day 2 photos are in a gallery below! Feel free to check them out, and learn more about the festival by clicking here!
