Created in 2012 by MidPoint Music Festival co-founder Bill Donabedian and then taken over by PromoWest Productions in 2014, out of the many music festivals in Greater Cincinnati, Bunbury Music Festival is the most like the big-time events across the country that draw headlines and tons of music fans — and also compete for marquee headliners year after year.
The three-day event returned this weekend for its seventh year to Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point/Yeatman’s Cove along the riverfront. The top-line acts for the 2018 fest included three amphitheater/arena headliners — The Chainsmokers (performing Friday) Incubus (Saturday's headlining act) and Jack White (headlining Sunday).
The rest of the lineup is a similar mix of Pop, Electronic, AltRock and Hip Hop, featuring Post Malone, Foster the People, Young the Giant, Dropkick Murphys, Royal Blood, Third Eye Blind, GRiZ, Coheed and Cambria, Manchester Orchestra, Fitz and The Tantrums, Lecrae and much more. The Cincinnati bands slated to perform at the festival are progressive Hard Rock crew Lift the Medium, Pop Punk/Post Hardcore band Friday Giants, Synth Pop act Moonbeau, Soul/Pop singer/songwriter Lauren Eylise, Americana favorite Arlo McKinley and AltRock act Daniel In Stereo.
