MidPoint Music Festival Releases Full Schedule

Get Tickets Here!

Musicians from five countries, 41 cities, and across the tri-state region will hit the stage in Cincinnati for MidPoint Music Festival. Approximately 120 acts will perform at this year’s event, scheduled for September 25–27, 2015.

Fans eager to see the full slate of artists, stages and show times can find a full schedule online at MPMF.com, along with tickets for single day and weekend passes.

“People crave to discover that band that’s about to break out. We’re presenting a great cross section of what’s new today,” said Dan Bockrath, festival producer. “It’s a big bang for your buck with this amount of talent.”

EXPERIENCE LIVE MUSIC FOR THREE DAYS
The 14th annual festival will present three days of music on 10 stages in the Over-the-Rhine and downtown. For the first time in 14 years, organizers have shifted festival dates from a Thursday, Friday, Saturday format to now run on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The change is the result of feedback from fans.
 
“For those who want to make the trip from somewhere nearby, like Pittsburgh or Chicago, MidPoint showcases throughout the weekend should make it an easier decision,” said Dan McCabe, creative director.
 
“The festival has consistently put out a great live music experience. We are hoping to connect more fans with their new favorite band with this change.”
 
2015 MIDPOINT MUSIC FESTIVAL VENUES
MidPoint adds three new venues this year with the Woodward Theater, Maudie’s and an outdoor stage at the corner of 14th and Sycamore Streets.
 
Fans younger than 21 can enjoy showcases at the all-ages stages at Christian Moerlein, Taft Ballroom, Lightborne Lot, and Washington Park. Parents eager to see some live music with their kids may want to take note that children under 10 years of age can attend showcases on the Washington Park main stage for free with a paying adult.

EXPERIENCE A UNIQUE FESTIVAL ATMOSPHERE
Since 2001, MidPoint's goal has been to help you discover your new favorite band. Our embrace of today's emerging artists is born of the same spirit employed by Cincinnati's celebrated musical pioneers, who always reached for something new. This festival isn’t as much about the flavor-of-the-month, but rather a tastemaker’s event where the bands performing will be what people are talking about next year.
 
For three days, fans can walk easily between venues dotted throughout beautiful, resurgent Over-the-Rhine. This collection of young creative talent amongst an architecturally rich urban setting makes MidPoint a one-of-a-kind experience. Unlike some festivals on a farm or a huge fielded area that could be anywhere, MidPoint carries the heart of our city with intimate performances in smaller clubs and theaters.
 
Over-the-Rhine and downtown Cincinnati are two of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the entire Midwest. We expect fans to not only enjoy the music, but also savor the many restaurants, cafés, and food trucks; our beautifully rebuilt Washington Park; and our handsome German-heritage buildings that make Cincinnati unique.
 
Cincinnati is one of the best music cities in the world. With MidPoint showcasing bandsand our city’s center, we are putting our best foot forward towards showing this is a great place to live, work and play.
 
BICYCLES ENCOURAGED
It is fairly easy to hop from show to show, but with 8 venues in Over-the-Rhine and two located downtown, not every showcase will be a quick walk. But it is a quick bike ride. Festival organizers will continue to partner with the City of Cincinnati to place a number of bike racks in strategic locations. We encourage everyone to save their feet for the dance floor and bring their bike to get to those must-see bands faster.
