Music and new media art take center stage again for the upcoming VIA Festival in Pittsburgh, now entering its fifth year and running this October 1st to the 5th. The festival has announced the final lineup for the event that will include performances by Deafheaven, Real Estate, Zebra Katz, Blue Hawaii and more. In addition to the program in Pittsburgh, VIA is also launching for the first time in Chicago that will feature Cakes Da Killa, Mykki Blanco, Anamanaguchi and others. The programs in both cities will showcase the latest in music and new media art through presentations and workshops. For the full lineup and schedule for the five-day event in Pittsburgh and Chicago, visit the festival's website. While we wait, why not revisit our GEN F on Deafheaven from last year.
