The organizers of Cincinnati’s Bunbury Music Festival have announced plans to postpone the event. Promowest Productions is not “shutting the door entirely on 2021″ but a release from the company suggested it may have to cancel the popular event for the second year in a row, due to safety concerns.
PromoWest Productions purchased Bunbury Music Festival in 2014.
In past years, Bunbury Music Festival, which takes place along the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati throughout Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove, has hosted top artists including Post Malone, Jack White, MUSE, Tom Petty, Ice Cube, Florence and the Machine and Snoop Dogg.
Traditionally, the Bunbury Music Festival has included two main stages, one side stage and one acoustic stage.
Promowest Productions released the following statement regarding the postponement:
It was our hope that the big picture would look very differently by this stage, but unfortunately it is with the safety and wellbeing of our fans, artists and staff in mind that we have chosen to postpone our plans for the next installment of Bunbury Music Festival.
Cancelling once, let alone twice, is the last thing we want to do. The state of things as they are projected to be would not lead to a safe and fun environment for all come June, so we are looking to the future without shutting the door entirely on 2021. We’ll continue to look for guidance from health officials at all levels and we ask all of you to stay safe and healthy!
Bunbarians in the Cincinnati area have another thing to look forward to this year as well, with the grand opening of Ovation Pavilion, right across the river in Newport, KY. The Indoor/Outdoor Ovation Pavilion hopes to welcome fans later this year!
We can’t wait to Bee Together again!“
The music festival last took place in 2019.
