Annual three-day Bunbury Music Festival indulges massive crowd at Cincinnati riverfront
Arranged between the downtown Cincinnati skyline and the Ohio River is the growing annual three-day Bunbury Music
Festival. In its second year the varied rock genre music festival was predicted to have 60,000 attendees, surpassing
last year's attendance numbers by 20,000. The well-organized weekend welcomed countless memorable moments
with performances from more than 80 artists, including headliners Fun., MGMT and The National.

When entering the mile-long park's section known as Yeatman's Cove, an organized path of four different stages were
strategically placed and well-distanced to ensure clear, non-conflicting show experiences. Continuing down the path
and walking underneath a tunnel structure toward the riverfront, known as Sawyer Point, the trail eventually led to two
larger stages setup across from each other with plenty of grassy distance in between. All six stages had ample space
for fans to pack in and get down.

Scattered along the path were independent merchandise vendors, an array of food and beverage options to choose
from and mist tents to suppress the summer heat. Near the main stage a large tent titled "TechBury" was setup to give
attendees an opportunity to charge their electronic devices.

The only weather ailment was a brief downpour on Sunday evening that delayed set times for a half hour.

The friendly, casual atmosphere and the diverse crowd-pleasing lineup with nine hours of daily live music all
connected with a natural, serene background to make Bunbury a premiere, must-attend annual festival.

In the words of a
Bunbury attendee who offered me a sour gummy worm: "We love it, we love you, we love this!"

Single-day tickets, three-day tickets and VIP options are
now on sale for Bunbury Music Festival 2014 on July 11-13.
