Chesney has a huge fan following and is known for his electrifying live performances, which makes him a perfect fit for the Gulf Coast jam.

With Chesney headlining the event, fans can expect to be entertained by his high-energy performances and hit songs.

Hozier, COIN, and More at WonderWorks Weekend In Pittsburgh
A festival of wonder touched down in Hartwood Acres Park on May 27-28, and though the lineup was small, it sure packed a punch.
WonderWorks Music Festival took place in Pittsburgh, PA this past weekend. Its lineup consisted of 24 indie/alternative/folk artists – including some big names, across three stages. The headliners were Hozier on Saturday night, followed by Jason Mraz on Sunday night. Other notable acts include Smallpools, Mt. Joy, Stephen Sanchez, and X Ambassadors.
In addition to the impressive lineup, festival-goers were able to enjoy performances by Pittsburgh locals prior to the main acts, selected in partnership with Pittsburgh residents and Millvale Music Festival. According to the official festival website, “WonderWorks will feature three different stages, an array of local, regional and international food, arts/crafts, activities for all ages and a robust artisan vendor village.”
You can see the full list of artists that performed on each day down below:
“It’s Like The Indie Coachella of Pittsburgh”
In Hartwood Acres Park, thousands of fans gathered to watch artist after artist perform at WonderWorks music festival. Each act was brilliant, all the way to the final performance of each headliner. Whilst standing in the crowd speaking to Pittsburgh locals, one boasted, “[WonderWorks] is like the indie Coachella of Pittsburgh.” They expressed gratitude for the stellar lineup and went on to tell me they bought tickets the second they were released. After all, who can resist attending Hozier’s return to music?
Some notable moments from this past weekend included a surprise feature from Stephen Sanchez singing ‘Honeybee’ with The Head and the Heart on Saturday, and a highly interactive set with Andy Frasco & the Un. Despite some minor technical flaws, WonderWorks put on a clean, enjoyable festival for people of all ages to enjoy. The staff was beyond gracious, the artists were energetic, and the weather was beautiful. All in all, it was an amazing weekend in Pittsburgh, and one I will look forward to year after year.
WonderWorks is part of a line of Wonder festivals, including WonderRoad, WonderBus, and WonderStruck. These fests take place around the United States, hosting thousands of fans in cities like Cleveland and Indianapolis. The lineups boast headlining acts like Weezer (WonderRoad), Khalid (WonderStruck), and Demi Lovato (WonderBus).
If you can’t catch the first Wonder fest of the year, don’t worry. Tickets are still available for the other three fests. Check out the full lineups for each fest + ticketing information on their official websites:
Lauren Spencer Celebrates Debut Album With Mirror Tour
TikTok sensation Lauren Spencer Smith announces her global headlining Mirror Tour in celebration of her debut album Mirror, out July 14th. On the album release day, she embarks on the tour kicking things off in Chicago. Mirror Tour consists of 42 dates ascending across North America, UK/Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
The first leg of the Mirror Tour in North America continues until August 17th. Then, Lauren takes on the UK/Europe from September 6th through October 9th. For the last leg of the Mirror Tour, she hits Australia and New Zealand. Specifically, she performs at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne, Australia on October 27th. Closing on November 4th, the final date is held at the Powerstation in Auckland, New Zealand.
Lauren Spencer’s Debut Album Arriving In July
Mirror is a vulnerable, introductory body of work for the multi-platinum singer-songwriter. It recounts personal experiences and lessons she has learned in her 19 years. Further, in the album trailer, Lauren Spencer states, “When I look in the mirror, I reflect on everything I’ve been through. All of the highs, all of the lows. The real, raw versions of myself.”
What’s more, the album has accumulated over 1 billion streams prior to its July 14th release. She continues to crank out digestible hits, her newest being a collaboration with Gayle and Em Beihold titled “Fantasy.” The song delves into a toxic relationship from a young perspective. With little knowledge and experience of relationships as a young woman, she viewed toxicity in relationships as normal.
Lauren Spencer Smith:
“When writing ‘Fantasy’, I wanted to capture how hard toxic relationships are and that coming out of those relationships can be so powerful. GAYLE and Em instantly connected with the topic and their verses helped take the song to another level.”

Moon River Festival announced their lineup, and we couldn’t be anymore excited! With Hozier and Caamp each headlining a night, make sure to discover and take part to one of the best music events of the year!
Should be exciting to hear Hozier play music from his EP, “Eat Your Young” released in April. Wondering if he’ll play any new material on the upcoming album…
CAAMP has been reviving the folks scene with a modern twist that features vibes of Country Western and Bluegrass. Definitely one to watch since Billboard tapped them as “one to watch” just a few years back.
