Since 1962 the Cincinnati Music Festival has been a staple in the Queen City bringing people together through music, but 2020 will be a little different because of precautions due to COVID-19 pandemic.  Festival organizers have announced that the 2020 festival will be postponed until July 22-24th 2021.

The 2020 festival was to be headlined by Janet Jackson, Charlie Wilson along with performances by Snoop Dogg, Fantasia, Tony Toni Tone, Biz Markie and many more.  But don’t get too upset, it’s looking like the 2021 festival will be worth the wait.

“The postponement of the 2020 Cincinnati Music Festival is a disappointment to all of us, but the safety and well-being of our guests and artists is our primary concern,” said Joe Santangelo, festival promoter. “We are grateful to all of the performers including Janet Jackson, Snoop Dogg, Charlie Wilson and Fantasia, among others, who have adjusted their schedules to join us in 2021.”
