Over-the-Rhine and Downtown Cincinnati will soon become overwhelmed by diverse indie music thanks to MidPoint Music Festival which takes place this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. This is the twelfth year of MPMF, a festival that has always been known for its uncanny ability to host artists that are just about to become superstars.

This year's lineup is sure to be no exception with over 180 artists across 16 stages. Those in-the-know may recognize some names such as The Breeders, The Head and The Heart, & Daughter, but MPMF is really about discovering new music that you've never heard.

Tickets are still available via CincyTicket for the very reasonable price of $69 for the whole weekend.

We have been previewing MidPoint artists all month long in order to prime your ears for the onslaught of audio goodness. Peruse our artist previews, reference our full festival schedule (available on mobile!), and get your venue-hopping shoes ready for this weekend.
