Strip District Music Fest

Presented by Pittsburgh City Paper & Pabst Blue Ribbon

To the wonderful supporters of the Strip District Music Fest,

The calls, emails, and texts regarding the status of the Fest have been touching, and overwhelming. We did not intend to make a statement, but felt it right to address the inquiries. 

We could not be more grateful that our crazy idea for a winter festival was embraced with such openness. The first two years, with the amazing talents of the bands, hosts, volunteers, and team members, and the overwhelming support in general, were a total blast. While we recognize that the SDMF could still be executed without Altar Bar, having a “hub” to act as the central venue was a huge part of the fest’s success, for many reasons. We do not wish to discontinue the SDMF all together; it is merely on hiatus. We look forward to the next one and hope you’ll join us when the time comes. Until then, stay tuned and have a beautiful 2017.

Gratefully yours, 
Josh & the SDMF Team
