This weekend Ubahn Festival returns to Cincinnati. September 8th and 9th will be the biggest hip-hop event in our city this year. Ubahn has rap superstars 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Gucci mane as headliners, as well as one of the most successful electronic musicians in the world, Steve Aoki. Ubahn is Cincinnati’s only underground festival. This event takes place in the Riverfront Transit Center which is a literal underground tunnel a short walk away from Paul Brown Stadium. If you have ever dreamed of going to a crazy rave party in an exotic location this is the festival for you.
In addition, Ubahn will pair the amazing lineup with live artwork installations, skateboard installations, local vendors, and other interactive experiences to transform Cincinnati’s underutilized Riverfront Transit Center into a truly unique festival experience.
Cincinnati has an often-underutilized local hip-hop scene, but Ubahn Festival gives them a place to shine. Make sure to catch the amazingness of C The Gray, Monty C Benjamin, ChuckDiesel, JAYAL, ClockworkDJ, Speed, Audley / Sylmar, Strykur, DJ J Dough, and Bergs.
September 9th will be a very important night for Speed Walton aka Buggs tha Rocka. Ubahn festival is showing love and support for one of Cincinnati’s biggest hip-hop artists by giving him a late-night slot to perform between Gucci Mane and Big Sean. This will be a major show in his career as this is one of the first shows where he is dropping the Buggs tha Rocka alias and going by his legal first name Speed. For Buggs tha Rocka fans, this is a must-see show.
Last year Ubahn Festival was a weekend to remember with rap legend Nas, Machine Gun Kelly, Atmosphere, Girl Talk among others. One of the coolest things to see was the full skate park that was set up below the streets of Cincinnati.
Ubahn Festival this weekend might be the craziest party in Cincinnati this year. The summer is over so go to Ubahn and cross the finish line of festival season.
