After a long pandemic silence, Downtown’s Cultural District is about to get loud.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust recently announced the featured music lineup for the 2022 Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival, which will be held June 3-12.
Featured concerts will take place at 7:30 p.m. on the Dollar Bank Main Stage at the intersection of 9th Street and Penn Avenue. For these outdoor performances, festival guests can expect standing room in front of the stage. Attendees who prefer to sit should bring their own chairs.
