Schedule for Deutschtown Music Festival


The Deutschtown Music Festival is a free event that began in 2013 with 46 bands.

Today, it had grown to 189 bands performing in multiple venues throughout Historic and East Deutschtown, but also other neighborhoods such as Troy Hill and Spring Garden.

Cody Walters, co-founder for the event, said almost 400 bands entered submissions to perform at this year’s festival.

“The growth has happened very naturally,” Walters said.

Because of the growth, this is the first year the event will span over two days. Ben Soltesz, also a co-founder, said the festival provides a good time for everyone, and that artists and vendors have had nothing but praise in the past.

“It’s much more than a community event, not even Pittsburgh, it’s a regional event,” Walters said.

Last year he met a couple who traveled from Dubois, and he knows a number of people who travel from Washington, Pa. Walters said it’s surprising and humbling how much the event has grown, but also a tribute to Northside culture.

Below is the schedule for Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9 performances. For more information, click here.
