The Blue Indian’s Top 5 MPMF Tips

1) Be flexible. Chances are you’re going to miss at least a few bands on your schedule. The lineup is packed with great acts, you’ll be walking a good bit, and there just isn’t enough time in the day to see everyone. You’ll enjoy yourself much more if you go into the festival knowing this.

2) Spend time at the free stage. Just because it’s free, doesn’t mean it’s bad music! Some of our favorite bands from the last few years have played on the free stage. Plus, you’ll be right next to all the vendors and art installations.

3) Dress comfortably. You’re going to be walking – a lot! Don’t let looking cool get in the way of having a good time!

4) See new music. This festival is about exposing new bands to people and with 150+ artists, there’s got to be at least a few of your new favorite bands.

5) Remember to tip! Yes, it’s an obvious one, but in the heat of the action you might forget. With tens of thousands of people flooding the streets of downtown Cincinnati, the people serving you have their work cut out for them. They’ll have a better time, you’ll have a better time.
