The lineup for this year’s MidPoint Indie Summer Series on Fountain Square, the free weekly Friday night ramp up to this year's September 27-29 festival, and featuring international, national, regional and local performers playing to thousands of enthusiastic fans was released today.
Festival producers are emphasizing several second chance opportunities for those who missed sold out performances from popular MPMF.11 showcase performers Bright Light Social Hour, Bear hands, and Lydia Loveless.
From Timbuktu Africa, living legend Khaira Arby and her Band will perform June 8. From Australia, the acclaimed Art vs Science will perform June 22. Their song "Magic Fountain" has been likened to this year’s MidPoint Indie Summer Series theme.
Amid the prevalence of many notable Cincinnati-based bands are the legendary Psychodots, who will make a very rare performance June 29, and Wussy, possibly Cincinnati's most celebrated music export in recent years, will close out the final night on August 31.
