THE FESTIVAL HISTORY
Originally called the Ohio Valley Jazz Festival when it was first held in 1962, the Cincinnati Music Festival has grown and evolved into a spectacular three-day event on Cincinnati’s riverfront. Starting out as an all-jazz concert, it has evolved and grown into a three-day festival featuring great music from the hottest stars in R&B, jazz, soul, and hip-hop, as well as up and coming artists. Past performers include Aretha Franklin, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Luther Vandross, Gerald Levert, Patti Labelle, New Edition, Earth Wind and Fire, Lakeside, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder and many many others.
By the year 2000, the festival was the largest of its kind in the United States, drawing more than 50,000 people annually from all across the country.
The festival has been held at various sites through its 50-year history, including French Lick Indiana, the Carthage Fairgrounds, the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, Detroit Comerica Park, and Crosly Field before landing at its current home in Paul Brown Stadium on Cincinnati’s river front. Accompanied by a street festival dubbed Festival 513, the Cincinnati Music Festival has an estimated annual economic impact of $25 million, according to the Greater Cincinnati Center for Economic Education at the University of Cincinnati.
In 2005, Macy’s became the festival’s headline sponsor, and continued on for 10 years through 2014. 2015 marks the first of many years in partnership with Cincinnati based global company P&G.
