Postby edwardnky » Tue Jun 12, 2012 2:06 am

150 acts over 3 days in downtown Cincinnati. If anyone needs a place to stay, holla.

...The Midpoint Music Festival has released a few of the 150+ artists that will be performing at their eleventh annual event taking place in Cincinnati September 27-29. MPMF has gained a reputation for having their ear to the ground and bringing in emerging talent that inevitably becomes next year's big hitters. While casual music fans come for the bands receiving accolades from Pitchfork and SPIN they are exposed to a wealth of local and regional talent. That is truly the best part about MPMF. If you have never participated in the event we strongly encourage you to do so. Early bird tickets are available now from for $59 / $169 for VIP.

Here is a list of artists confirmed so far:

Grizzly Bear
Dirty Projectors
Sleigh Bells
Dinosaur Jr
Best Coast
Cloud Nothings
Imperial Teen
Willis Earl Beal
Frankie Rose
Julia Holter
Laetitia Sadier
Craft Spells
Lord Huron
The Black Bells
The Growlers
J.C. Brooks & The Uptown Sound

MidPoint Music Festival: The Story

Marking its 11th year Sept. 27-29, Cincinnati’s MidPoint Music Festival has developed a reputation as the place to find the next big thing. Many of last year’s performers made year-end lists for Best Album or Best New Artist in major music publications such as Spin, Fader, Pitchfork, NME, Filter and Rolling Stone.

The list of recent MPMF performers includes Cut Copy, The Joy Formidable, Okkervil River, Booker T., The Felice Brothers, Best Coast, Phantogram, Surfer Blood, Caribou, A Place to Bury Strangers, Holy F*ck, Fang Island, +/-, Colour Revolt, Cults, Candy Claws, Brighton MA, Drink Up Buttercup, The Strange Boys, Felice Brothers, Javelin, Heartless Bastards, The Do, Chairlift, Micachu and the Shapes, Sarah Borges, Bob Pollard, Wussy and Buffalo Killers.

Attendance has grown along with the buzz, jumping from 13,500 in 2008 to more than 23,000 in 2011. Sales of three-day MPMF wristbands were up significantly last year, and overall box office receipts have doubled since 2008.

As for the buzz, MidPoint has more than 5,800 Facebook fans and 2,100 Twitter followers. The web site received 410,501 page views Jan. 1-Oct. 1, 2011, an increase of 13 percent over the same period the year before. Total post views of MidPoint’s Facebook page were 1,519,269 for the period Jan. 1-Oct. 1, 2011.

MPMF expanded its annual footprint in a big way in 2009, when it began hosting the MidPoint Indie Summer Series on Fountain Square, downtown Cincinnati’s main public meeting space. The free Friday night series completed its third summer June 3-Sept. 2, 2011, with another exciting schedule of national, regional and local performers.

Save the dates for MPMF.12 now: Sept. 27-29.
