CincyPunk Fest Is Back On

With the announcement of Southgate House Revival, we are pleased to report that CincyPunk Fest will return! After a brief hiatus, the charitable fest will return for the 11th time as one of the first events in this new venue.

The CincyPunk Fest began in 2003 and has since been known as a staple in the Cincinnati music landscape. What's even better is that the fest has raised almost $50,000 over the years for local charities and musicians. Great music goes well with philanthropy!

Adam Rosing, the founder of CincyPunk Fest, has ensured that this giving spirit continues to surround the festival by forming CincyPunkFest Inc. as a legit 503(b) non-profit organization. The 7-member board is chock full of local music talent and supporters.

This year's fest will take place October 12th & 13th at The Southgate House Revival on 6th Street in Newport. This installment will benefit both Recycled Doggies and Save Our Shelter Dogs. Stay tuned for a lineup sometime next week.
