The Ohio Valley Jazz Festival was the original name when it was first held in 1962, the Cincinnati Music Festival has grown and evolved into a spectacular two-day event on Cincinnati’s riverfront. Starting out as an all-jazz concert, it has evolved and grown into a two-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 others.
The 2017 Cincinnati Music Festival lineup is the most ambitious in the R&B event's 50-plus-year history, according to promoters.
“We’ve had a lot of great performances at the festival in the past, but this year is going to be truly big,” said Fran Santangelo DiBattista, marketing director for the Santangelo Group, which has promoted the festival since 2005.
On Tuesday, DiBattista and her father, Joe Santangelo, announced R&B stars Mary J. Blige and Usher will headline this year’s festival, which is set to take place July 27-29 at Paul Brown Stadium. “He is a household name,” DiBattista said of Usher, who will close the festival on Saturday. “To have an artist that is this current, yet well known with older music fans as well, is fantastic
Mary J.Blige will perform Friday with En Vogue, SWV, BBD and Kem, while Confunkshun, Anthony Hamilton and Fantasia will join Usher on Saturday.Those performances will take place on the field of Paul Brown Stadium.
VIBE Cincinnati event, Cincy Soul: Black Taste, also will return in conjunction with the music festival. Cincy Soul will take place 11 a.m.-8 p.m. July 29 and noon-7 p.m. July 30 on Downtown's Fifth Street between Vine and Walnut streets. Local business owner Julian Rodgers said he introduced Cincy Soul last year as a one-day event to expose more people to small, minority-owned restaurants in the city. Rodgers estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people sampled food from 28 vendors during the inaugural event. He said Cincy Soul will showcase about 56 vendors this year, and national and local music acts will perform at nearby Fountain Square during Cincy Soul.
