We had our doubts when we didn’t hear a peep from the folks at the upcoming Bunbury Festival since their kick off party last summer. It turns out, they were just busy booking huge headlining acts for their inaugural festival this summer in Cincinnati. Yes, you are reading that poster right, Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie and Jane’s Addiction are all slated to play at Sawyer Point this summer!
Jane’s Addiction will perform on Friday, July 13 (9:30 p.m.) with Weezer on Saturday, July 14 (9:30 p.m.) and Death Cab for Cutie on Sunday, July 15 (8:30 p.m.).
Not seeing the names of the others just yet (more coming next week), but the weight has shifted to Cincinnati a bit after the My Morning Jacket to Forecastle announcement a few weeks ago. So now you have quite a few choices to make Midwest concert goers, Cincinnati for Bunbury, Louisville for Forecastle or Chicago for Pitchfork.
I should also mention that tickets are on sale at www.bunburyfestival.com: $46 for one-day passes, $93 for three-day passes.
