Two big, and relatively new, Cincinnati music festivals will be run by a Columbus company.  PromoWest has purchased the rights to Bunbury and Buckle Up. 

“We are excited to expand into the Cincinnati market,'' said Scott Stienecker, president and CEO of PromoWest Productions. "We have strong relationships with the bands that play Bunbury as they play our venues throughout the year."

According to a release from PromoWest, the concerts' founder, Bill Donabedian, will continue to oversee the events.  The company will handle booking, marketing, and production for the concerts.

The forces behind Cincinnati’s Bunbury Music Festival are adding a new, country music event the weekend after Midpoint. Lee Hay learns all about the Buckle Up Music Festival and some of the big name performers (Willie Nelson, Alabama, Allison Krauss and Union Station, and more) from organizer/founder Bill Donabedian.

The Bunbury Music Festival is back for its third year at Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove.

Highlights of this year's music lineup include huge stage production acts like Flaming Lips and Empire of the Sun; reunions of beloved rock bands like Veruca Salt and Psychodots; plus great local talent such as Molly Sullivan, Foxy Shazam and The Yugos.

As the festival has grown and matured, so has the attention being paid to personalizing the visitor experience.
