The 55th Annual Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival announced the headlining musical acts for the 10-day festival, from June 6 to 15, at Point State Park, Downtown.

It begins June 6 with a solo performance by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. Young new-bluegrass aces Sam Bush and Trampled By Turtles are next, June 7 and 8, respectively. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will perform June 9.

Other highlights include British rockers Kaiser Chiefs on June 10, '80s hitmakers The Smithereens on June 12, country-folk legend Lucinda Williams on June 14, and young British singer-songwriter Jake Bugg on June 15. All shows are free, rain or shine.

• June 6: Jeff Tweedy. Singer-songwriter from two acclaimed, influential bands, Wilco and Uncle Tupelo

• June 7: Bluegrass Day with Sam Bush. Grammy-winning bluegrass multi-instrumentalist and founder of the New Grass Revival, incorporating jazz, rock, funk and blues into traditional bluegrass

• June 8: Trampled By Turtles. One of the best young bluegrass bands, this Minnesota string-band's players started out in punk-rock bands before turning to acoustic guitars, banjos and fiddles.

• June 9: Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra

• June 10: Kaiser Chiefs. One of Britain's biggest-selling bands, they're a throwback to the super-catchy power pop-New Wave bands of the late '70s and early '80s

• June 11: Amos Lee. Singer-songwriter and former teacher from Philadelphia has toured and collaborated with Norah Jones, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon

• June 12: The Smithereens. Three decades of fashion-impervious pop-rock, with hits in the '80s like “A Girl Like You,” “House We Used to Live In” and “Only a Memory”

• June 13: Curtis Harding. Young Atlanta soul singer with a stirring, live-instrument-heavy throwback sound

• June 14: Lucinda Williams. A legend in country, folk and roots-rock circles, she has won Grammys as a performer and a songwriter for others

• June 15: Jake Bugg. One of Britain's most acclaimed young singer-songwriters, who just recorded his second album, “Shangri La,” with legendary producer Rick Rubin.

All headline concerts will be at 7:30 p.m. on the Dollar Bank Stage in Point State Park, except the symphony, which will start at 7 p.m. Opening acts will perform at 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and at 6:30 p.m. weekdays.

The schedule for other performing and visual arts and family programming will be announced May 9.
