Cincinnati's Bunbury Music Festival is postponing its summertime event for the second year in a row due to COVID-19.

The 2020 fest, slated to run May 31-June 2 at Sawyer Point downtown, was canceled "out of concern for the safety and wellbeing of fans, artists and staff," say organizers. 

And with the uncertainty surrounding COVID going forward, they've decided to "postpone" the June 2021 event as well. 

“It has been difficult to plan and book artists when we are still unsure of what the situation will look like come June,” said Scott Stienecker, president of PromoWest Productions — the company that produces the fest. “We have not been able to secure a lineup that we think is up to the level that our festival attendees have grown accustomed to.” 

Although all hope is not lost, according to a tweet saying, "We are looking to the future without shutting the door entirely on 2021."


PromoWest is also promoting its new local music venue — the indoor/outdoor Ovation Pavilion — slated to open later this year in Newport.
