Dam-Funk, !!!, Matthew Dear, Oneohtrix Point Never to Play Pittsburgh's VIA Fest

Pittsburgh isn't usually the place you associate with rad electronic music, but come October 1, that's gonna change. Folks like Matthew Dear, !!!, Big Freedia, Dam-Funk, Oneohtrix Point Never (pictured above), and TOKiMONSTA are all set to take over the city's first VIA Festival, and they'll (usually) be accompanied by a host of visual artists, to include the likes of Kokoromi Collective, Mehmet Akten, Alison Childs, Nate Boyce, and plenty more. The first day's events, taking place at Carnegie Mellon University, are all free to the public, and feature artist workshops. The Saturday and Sunday 18-and-over line-ups, happening at the famed Iron City Brewery and Lawrenceville Moose Lodge, respectively, are posted below. Weekend passes for $47 go on sale August 9 and can be purchased here or at select Pittsburgh stores.
