Published On April 23, 2016 | By Leah Kennedy | Music

layercake1Last fall, talents collided at Pittsburgh’s first ever installment of Layer Cake Music Fest, an immersive gathering of local artists and musicians in the 412.

This year’s second installment is well underway; and this time, organizers at Ziggy Sawdust Productions are adding a second day with multiple venues that’ll feature 150+ regional and national bands, 40+ live painters, and 20+ performance artists.

layercake2Keeping with the theme of live art and music mashups, this year’s installment will include multiple acts spanning across the realm of genres, from raunchy, reckless garage punk collective The Nox Boys; to wavy pop sounds from indie outfit, City Steps; to melodic “rock vogue” band, delicious pastries.

In celebrating the spirit and culture of Pittsburgh’s talented artist community, the festival will take place in several local neighborhoods–a new addition for this summer.
