After a year that saw record attendance numbers, the MidPoint Music Festival is set to return to clubs throughout Over-the-Rhine and downtown Cincinnati Sept. 22-25. This year’s MPMF marks the event’s 10th anniversary.

Between Feb. 25 and May 16 the fest accepted submissions from all bands and solo artists interested in performing this fall. Once the judging process is complete, invitations will be issued to performers.

The submissions were processed through Sonic Bids again this year.
