Thrival Innovation + Music Festival Returns To Pittsburgh, Sept. 20th-24th
July 14, 2016 at 12:06 PM (PT)
Now in its fourth year, the THRIVAL INNOVATION + MUSIC FESTIVAL will feature a lineup featuring THE CHAINSMOKERS, THIEVERY CORPORATION, CHVRCHES, METRIC, TY DOLLA $IGN, HUDSON MOHAWKE and LETTUCE, among others, for its "immersive, interdisciplinary, and celebratory programs and two-day live music experience," in PITTSBURGH, SEPTEMBER 20th through 24th.
The outdoor concert is located at the national historic landmark and dramatically-sited CARRIE FURNACES.
Produced by the PITTSBURGH-based nonprofit THRILL MILL and presented by UPMC ENTERPRISES, THRIVAL INNOVATION gravitates around three main themes — corresponding with each of the three days of programs — “Lost and Found,” “AuthentiCity” and “The Ripple Effect.”
THRIVAL Executive Producer DAN LAW states: “We’re confronted with a rapidly evolving and changing society, in countless ways, from technology to community development — and we need to talk about it. We need to have open, respectful, honest explorations of who we are and where we’re going. THRIVAL is a platform to do just that.” Producer.
Located at the newly debuted ALLOY 26 on PITTSBURGH's historic NORTH SIDE neighborhood (a 50,000 sq. ft. collaborative work space housed in a former WOOLWORTHS), THRIVAL INNOVATION will feature four keynotes, 30+ programs, and over 50 speakers. With thought talks hosted in the complex’s new amphitheater, the festival features an adjacent 20,000 square foot exhibit floor demoing dozens of startups, interactive art piece, and activities. All daytime activities are free of charge and open to the public, although registration is required. The exhibit floor is open for anyone who desires to walk through.
After the three days of innovation programming, all roads will lead to the CARRIE FURNACES, a former blast furnace site on the banks of the MONONGAHELA RIVER just outside city limits. Transformed for this music event by LUXE CREATIVE and the THRIVAL team, the unique setting and eclectic lineup promises a singularly impactful experience on SEPTEMBER 23rd-24th.
"As a leading partner in healthcare innovation, UPMC ENTERPRISES is excited to focus national and international attention on the region’s thriving innovation community,” said UPMC Chief Innovative Officer/UMPC ENTERPRISES EVP DR. RASU SHRESTHA. “THRIVAL has proven to be an excellent platform for promoting the ideas that are crucial to solving problems not just in medicine but across all of our society."
