It’s year 8 and counts towards the Four Chord Music Festival, which takes another step in 2022 by adding a second day of music! Bad Religion and Descendents took place at the top of the punk-infused first day, while Jimmy Eat World and All Time Low led a more modern pop-punk second day for the festival which now takes place over two days on 9 and 10 September in Pittsburgh (Washington), Pennsylvania’s Wild Things Park.
The festival has seen steady growth, starting as a local punk festival held in a 1,500 capacity club in 2014. And now, in 2022, Four Chord Music Festival is taking over a park for two days fun music.
Festival founder Rishi Bahl said, “This is it. This is the festival I’ve dreamed of being able to host since it started in my apartment 7 years ago in Pittsburgh. I can’t wait.”
In addition to Bad Religion and Descendents, the Friday, September 9 bill includes sets from Pennywise, Silverstein, The Amity Affliction, Story of the Year, Lagwagon, H20, I Am the Avalanche, Destroy Boys, The Bombpops, Surfbort, Keep Flying, Summer Years and Don’t Panic.
Saturday’s Bill (September 10) still has two slots open, but will find The Story So Far, The Starting Line, The Maine, Mom Jeans, Games We Play, Eternal Boy, Angel Dust, Patent Pending, Cherie Amour and Look Out Loretta continues before Jimmy Eat World and All Time Low close out the night.
