About Buckle Up Music Festival

The inaugural Buckle Up Music Festival will be an unforgettable excursion, with no less than eighty bands performing across six stages. Other festival highlights include a craft beer village, over a dozen local vendors, and special three-day VIP passes that include front-row viewing, surprise performances and chair massages. As the latest project of Bill Donabedian, the genius behind the must-see Bunbury Music Festival, this is a live music experience you simply can't miss.

This year's lineup showcases the very best of Americana, country, bluegrass, rock and more. Don't miss Willie Nelson, who just released Band of Brothers and will doubtless be performing some of the album's original new tunes. Country rock pioneers Alabama will be playing the best of their countless hits. Another must-see act is Grammy-winning Alison Krauss and Union Station, whose haunting bluegrass repertoire will be hard to forget. If you're hoping to hear the freshest pop-country stars, The Band Perry will be delivering their chart-topping hits in perfect, aching three-part harmony.

Alt-country icons Old Crow Medicine Show and Emmylou Harris will be tracking in some more grit for the festival's country cred. The bright newcomers of Eli Young Band are another top-notch addition. Lending a harder edge to Buckle Up are husband-and-wife duo Thompson Square, and singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson is sure to stir your soul with his countrified crooning. Other stars on the top billing include David Nail, Marty Stuart, Drive-By Truckers, Corey Smith, Ashley Monroe, and Kristian Bush of Sugarland.

Anxious to catch potential up-and-comers? Never fear. Buckle Up has wide array of budding talent that is sure to gain traction after this festival, including A Thousand Horses, Buffalo Wabs & the Price Hill Hustle, Natalie Stovall and the Drive, the Dan Varner Band, and Arlo McKinley & the Lonesome Sound. This year's lineup has upwards of eighty awesome performers, plus the special VIP performances.

Previous Hits

Buckle Up owner Bill Donabedian has been drawing the most exciting acts and biggest crowds in the festival business for over ten years. He created the MidPoint Music Festival with Sean Rhiney in 2002, which has proved to be one of the most popular destinations for unsigned talent from the U.S. and around the world. He also owns the rocking eco-friendly Bunbury Music Festival, which was included as one of Yahoo Music's Essential Summer Festivals. With Donabedian's proven track record of smash-hit music event management, Buckle Up Music Festival is sure to be one of the best new events of the summer.


Buckle Up Music Festival will take place in the historic Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove Park. The park is the former site of Cincinnati's first tavern, established in 1793 by Griffin Yeatman.

The park is currently home to a statue of Cincinnatus, model of ancient Roman virtue and the city's namesake. See if you can spot this venerable statesman and aristocrat at the festival!
