MidPoint Music Festival (MPMF) is excited to take part in the fantastic opportunity Fountain Square continues to provide Cincinnati’s musicians and their growing fan base.

Cincinnati is a natural place to make music. As the city has begun embracing its musical heritage and our present day music-makers, an increasing infrastructure of support is developing that includes newly available stages, expanding local music coverage by CityBeat Magazine, the annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, and Cincinnati’s front porch: Fountain Square.

MidPoint Indie Summer performance line-ups will again showcase the wealth of Cincinnati’s bevy of music talent. Performer highlights will also include Baby Teeth (Chicago), Fiery Furnaces (New York City) and Enon (Dayton). Local heroes Bad Veins have also announced the official CD release of their first album on the Danger Bird Record label during MidPoint Indie Summer.

MPMF.09 will have a large presence on Fountain Square during each of the 15 Friday events. Attendees of MidPoint Indie Summer can expect to hear MPMF.09 scheduling announcements and information about continuing festival partnerships, volunteering, tickets and merchandise.

The programming of MidPoint Indie Summer does not necessarily reflect performances scheduled for MPMF.09, so make sure you catch these performers on Fountain Square this summer — they might not be back for MPMF.09 in September.

All MidPoint Indie Summer shows are FREE for ALL AGES. Show up at 6pm to find a nice area to nest and 3 different bands will play from 7pm to 10pm every Friday (with parking at Fountain Square only $4 after 4pm).
