Riverbend Music Center History

The Riverbend Music Center has been one of the most popular outdoor music venues in the Cincinnati area since it first opened its doors in 1984. Located on the banks of the Ohio River, Riverbend Music Center offers scenic views of the river while patrons enjoy world class music. The venue was originally constructed to provide the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra with a venue to perform outdoor concerts during the summer months as well as to be a venue that would attract big name musicians who had not been playing the city as much following a tragedy at a 1979 Who concert at Riverfront Coliseum in which 11 people died. Now Riverbend Music Center is one of the most beloved music venues in the country which attracts musicians and music lovers from all over to experience a concert in the popular venue.

In addition to big concerts, Riverbend Music Center is also home to major festivals like the Vans Warped Tour, Curiosa, Ozzfest, Lollapalooza, and more. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra still regularly performs at the Riverbend Music Center as well.
