Four Chord Festival in Pittsburgh This Summer

This summer, the legendary Four Chord Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary with yet another stacked lineup. Performances from A Day To Remember, The Story So Far, The All-American Rejects and Something Corporate are just the tip of the iceberg for the two-day festival.

Pop-Punk in Pittsburgh

The 10-year anniversary of Four Chord Festival continues the decade-long trend of bringing punk to Pittsburgh. Since 2014, Four Chord and the festival’s founder Rishi Bahl have celebrated the rugged and rejected—the only difference now is the scope. What started small has now grown to need a space as large as the Carrie Furnace. Not only is the Carrie Furnace huge, but it’s rich with history and meaning.

In an interview with Billboard, Bahl explains, “We’ve been trying to get in there for a while.” Seeing how “Carrie Furnace is one of the oldest blast furnaces in Pittsburgh,” Bahl explains that this location brings the festival back to “Pittsburgh proper.” Most importantly, he emphasizes how this “aligns with the ethos of the festival and its blue collar, independent, DIY and anti-Live Nation endeavor.”

The Lineup

This year’s Four Chord Festival promises 48 hours of punk perfection, kicking off with A Day To Remember and The Story So Far on June 22nd. Senses Fail, State Champs, Four Year Strong, Microwave and Militarie Gun follow suit. Rounding out the first day are Koyo, Eternal Boy, Driveways, Action/Adventure, Cliffdiver and, finally, Mallory Run.

The following day is just as packed, starting strong with The All-American Rejects and Something Corporate. Following these headliners are Motion City Soundtrack, The Get Up Kids, Relient K, Taylor Acorn, Hunny and Patient Pending. The last stretch of the festival will feature Keep Flying, People R Ugly, House Parties, Goalkeeper, Don’t Panic and Old Neon.
