The most common question associated with Cincinnati’s MidPoint Music Festival — besides “Are you going?” — is probably something along the lines of, “Who should I go see?” The festival, which returns to various venues around Over-the-Rhine and downtown this Friday-Sunday, has always been about exploration and discovery, and word-of-mouth recommendations are some of the best ways to find great new music at MPMF. Hopefully CityBeat — which owns and operates MPMF, now in its 14th year — can also be of assistance as you plot your MidPoint adventure. In early September we published our official guide to the fest, featuring write-ups on all of the performers, as well as info on the other facets of the event, like the free, all-ages MidPoint Indie Craft Village in Washington Park. You’ll be able to find the official guide (as well as portable pocket guides with the schedules) at MPMF venues, and you can also find the content at citybeat.com. Read more about the festival on our MPMF page.
