Friday night, after spending the evening riding car shuttles up and down Main Street for four hours, I returned home and searched around online for some MidPoint Music Festival feedback. I'd just been blown away by the turnout and quality of music I'd seen and wanted to make sure I wasn't being biased because I happen to work for CityBeat.
Now entering its seventh year, lots of things about this year's MidPoint Music Festival (running Sept. 25-27 in Downtown, Over-the-Rhine and Newport) will feel familiar. But even more will feel different. CityBeat has taken over the fest, which has brought thousands of musicians and music industry heavies to Cincinnati over the years and provided a great three-day party in the urban center for local and regional music lovers.
Come downtown for the MidPoint music, enjoy the urban experience and move your feet -- but save your shoe leather for the dance floors. With so many bands to see each evening in a variety of clubs, festival organizers have devised the Scion Streetcar Shuttle to get you around quickly.
