Bunbury Festival 2013: July 12th-14th: Schedule Preview

bunburyBunbury Festival is back! We we’re lucky enough to attend the first year of the three-day music festival in Cincinnati last year, and it looks like we’ll be packing our bags in the next few weeks to make the drive up I-75 again.

Held at Sawyer Point/Yeatman’s Cove, Bunbury 2013 takes place July 12th-14th and features yet another impressive lineup – this time with headlining sets from fun., MGMT, and The National, though the talent shines all the way down to the opening acts of the each day. Over the weekend, 80+ bands will play on six different stages set through the beautiful river-side park and the downtown comes alive with various after-parties once festivities wind down at 11:00pm.

Single day tickets are currently only $55.00… How ’bout that? But how will we get to know you if you only stick around for one day.. Go ahead and pick up a weekend pass for $110.00 or opt for VIP for only $295.00. VIP passes include front row access to the main stage, an air conditioned tent and bathrooms, surprise performances each day, complimentary massages, and much more. Ticket prices increase on June 30th, but only by a few more dollars.

Bunbury makes it easy to choose who you want to see, but we still wanted to give you a few suggestions or at least clue you in to what bands we’ll be spending our weekend watching. This could easily change and we’ve left a few gaps for good measure, but we’ve enjoyed every band playing the festival that we’ve heard so far.  See you soon, Cincinnati!
