It's here. After a long winter, festival season has finally arrived. Time to break out your lawn chairs and blankets, your sunglasses and flip flops, and get ready to soak in the sounds and sights of summertime at the 2016 Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival.
As always, we've planned hundreds of free activities to kick off the unofficial start to summer. Here are the top 5 events you don't want to miss this year.
1. Opening Night Headliner: Michael Franti and Spearhead
Friday, June 3 I 7:30 - 9 pm I Dollar Bank Main Stage at Point State Park
What better way to say hello to summer than with "The Sound of Sunshine" himself, soul rocker Michael Franti? Long known for his globally conscious lyrics, powerful performances, and dynamic live shows, Franti has continually been at the forefront of lyrical activism, using his music as a positive force for change.
Franti and his band Spearhead, known for their authentic and uplifting music, have found global success with multi-platinum songs like "Say Hey (I Love You)”, the chart breaking 2010 release of The Sound Of Sunshine. Franti and his band guarantee a show that will be thought provoking as well as energetic.
