Greta Van Fleet
Despite the weather forecasts throughout the few days prior to the event, mother nature decided she’d cooperate with the city of Cincinnati last weekend as Bunbury Music Festival took place at Yeatman’s Cove and Sawyer Point. The venue sits along the Ohio River, with three of Cincinnati’s bridges and several skyscrapers looming above the stages. Northern Kentucky’s neighborhoods sit just across the river, providing the perfect backdrop for an urban music festival.
Grammy-winning rock 'n' roll band GRETA VAN FLEET today announces a three week Fall North American leg of its March of the Peaceful Army Tour, set to kick off in Kansas City on Saturday, September 21. The tour will include first-time visits to Kansas City and Irvine, and the band performing a blend of fan-favorites and some brand new tunes. Shannon and the Clams, a GVF personal pick, will support on all dates.
Nestled right next to downtown, the Cincinnati skyline offers a beautiful urban backdrop for this unique festival that has made me proud of the growing music scene in Cincinnati over the past few years. Not only does the cityscape play into the beauty of the venue, but it is seated right along the banks of the Ohio River, giving the festival a bit of character.
Fall Out Boy, Greta Van Fleet, The 1975, Girl Talk and Run The Jewels will headline the 2019 Bunbury Music Festival, announced today by PromoWest Productions. One of the country’s premier music festivals now celebrating its eighth year, Bunbury will return to downtown Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove, transforming the banks of the Ohio River into a vibrant three-day festival experience May 31-June 2, 2019. Bunbury has received critical acclaim from Billboard, USA Today, Pollstar and Yahoo!
The young Michigan rock band Greta Van Fleet has been making a splash in the music world over the last few years after extensive festival appearances across the nation and around the world.
