unnamed Thrival Innovation + Music Festival - a unique and innovative festival experience that just completed its second year in the city of Pittsburgh. We were on site last year for Thrival's inaugural event, and being as impressed as we were, we had to head back for this year's festivities.

This year's Thrival Innovation + Music Festival had over 11,000 attendees - that's more than 5,000 more than last year's event. With over 100 speakers and presenters, 40 live musical performances, 30 innovation-focused programs, Thrival succeeded and turned out to be one incredible and unforgettable event for the Steel City.

We sent our photographer, Pip Thompson, out to Hazelwood, where Thrival's music portion of the festival took place on over 10 acres of land. Stages, food trucks, beer vendors - what else do you need for a weekend of good weather in the 'Burgh? Pip captured tons of performances, including some of our favorites like Viceroy, LIGHTS, KFlay and more.
