Live music on Fountain Square 6 days a week!
2013 music line-up:
Every Monday evening on Fountain Square for our family-friendly trivia nights!
Today’s contemporary country and rock music has its roots in many traditional American forms, from bluegrass and folk to rockabilly and honky tonk. Luckily, Cincinnati is a hotbed of roots music, with lots of talented acts offering modern takes on these traditional sounds. Visit Fountain Square each Tuesday and get in touch with your American roots. Be sure to join us at Cincy’s on Sixth for the official American Roots after-party!
Take a mid-week break and enjoy “island time” on Wednesday evenings this summer. Reggae bands take the stage as we slowly cruise into the weekend. Leave the workday behind and let the smooth rhythms of the Caribbean carry you far away.
Every Thursday, enjoy hot salsa bands, skilled dancers, and tips from expert instructors who will take to the dance floor teach the basic steps. When it gets too hot, dancers can cool down with a cold soft drink or adult beverage. Come down and show off your best “Cha-Cha”!
Start the week off on the right foot with an after-work happy hour on Fountain Square. Each Monday, 4EG will present live bands and DJs on the P&G Music Stage and will feature one of their venues each week, rotating among their nine unique establishments (soon to be ten, when their newest creation comes to Sixth Street downtown later this summer). Each week’s 4EG venue will also serve as that evening’s official after party location.
Fountain Square joins with MidPoint Music Festival to offer a FREE preview of MPMF’s indie music showcases all summer long. Local, regional, and national bands perform every Friday night! MidPoint Indie Summer is presented by CityBeat.
Saturday nights on Fountain Square will once again be a destination for poets, singers, rappers and writers. Come down every Saturday to enjoy this FREE show as local, regional and national artists showcase their talents at Beats by Self Diploma. Join us after the concert at our official after-party location–PLAY.
Every night of the week, Fountain Square hosts a series of FREE concerts that feature local, national and international bands, encompassing a wide variety of musical genres. From Hip Hop to Salsa to Bluegrass to Indie Rock—the PNC Summer Music series has it all and much, much, more.
