Pittsburgh’s ‘Sudden Little Thrills’ music fest canceled by producers

PITTSBURGH — A new music fest that was set to take place in Pittsburgh this year has been canceled.

The “Sudden Little Thrills” music fest scheduled for Sept. 7 and 8 at Hazelwood Green will not take place.

“We were excited to bring a new world-class music festival to Pittsburgh, however, due to circumstances beyond our control, the Sudden Little Thrills Festival will not take place in 2024. Tickets purchased directly through Front Gate Tickets will be automatically refunded in as little at 30 days to the original method of payment,” the producers posted to Facebook.

The Killers and Sza were scheduled to headline the festival, from the producers of Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo.

VISITPittsburgh says it’s disappointed in the cancellation and hopes to discuss future opportunities with the organizers.

“We’re disappointed in the news surrounding Sudden Little Thrills, and our team is in close communication with event organizers to discuss future opportunities for Pittsburgh. Despite this cancellation, Pittsburgh still has a strong line-up of summer concerts, music festivals and events on the docket for 2024,” a statement from VISITPittsburgh reads.
