Get Festive with These 4 Pittsburgh Black Music Festivals

Clara Kent, multidisciplinary artist, CEO of Bounce House Studios & Productions, radio host at WYEP, GPAC artist outreach coordinator, COO of BLKNVMBR, and artist advocate for Black and Indigenous folk, suggests a few music festivals worth the visit. 

I love these festivals because they create space for the Black community to celebrate our heritage and the vibrancy of our creativity and artistry freely. Though Black History Month is a beautiful notion towards honoring the history of African descendants in America, having time to enjoy the summer together celebrating music and art, and enjoying the nuances of being Black in Pittsburgh is affirming. It’s beautiful to see Black people and other communities that uplift us come together and enjoy themselves wholeheartedly.
