MPMF Homegrown Schedule

The 11th annual MidPoint Music Festival is finally here! For the next three days you can wonder around Over The Rhine and discover great music from around the world. The organizers have really put a lot of time in to making this the best MPMF yet, and I can't wait! has been doing a great job of previewing a few artists, and we have posted an interview with The Antlers here. However, I think the best advice I could give is to not listen to what other people are feeding you. Just go out and see it for yourself! 

We have put together this list of our homegrown talent that you should be checking out this weekend. These bands play in our own backyard every week and deserve your support. They are the backbone of this music community, and without them this event would not be possible:
