Jeff Tweedy, the scruffy frontman for indie-rock/alt-country band Wilco, will open the 55th annual Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival music lineup on June 6 in Point State Park.

The schedule is being announced throughout the day today on sponsor station WYEP (91.3 FM).

Also announced so far this morning is young British singer-songwriter Jake Bugg on the festival's closing date, June 15.

This will be the first solo trip here for Tweedy, whose band Wilco drew a massive crowd to the festival in 2003.

All concerts are all free and begin at 7:30 p.m., with the exception of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra concert (date TBA), which will begin at 7 p.m.
