Midpoint Music Festival has developed a reputation as the place to discover contemporary music, find the next big thing, and meet your new favorite band. Since 2001, our endeavor has been to embrace today's emerging artist, all with the same spirit employed by Cincinnati's celebrated musical pioneers, who always reached for something new.

Each fall, the streets of Cincinnati become a music-lover’s paradise.  This year, the festival is centralized to a location with all stages within one block of each other in downtown Cincinnati. This collection of young creative talent amongst an architecturally rich urban setting makes MidPoint a one-of-a-kind experience. 

Showcase performers year after year are those buzzed about in critics’ year-end lists for ‘Best Album’ or ‘Best New Artist’ in publications like Spin, Fader, Pitchfork, NME, Filter and Rolling Stone.
