Macy’s Music Festival to jazz up Cincinnati
July 10, 2012 by Mark
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of “Rhythm & U”, the 2012 Macy’s Music Festival is scheduled for July 27 – 28 at the Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. The festival usually attracts over 40,000 attendees from across the country.
Originally called the Ohio Valley Jazz Festival when it began in 1962, it has evolved into one of the largest summer events in the country, now featuring various music genres. It has been reported to have a substantial economic impact on the city, generating over $25 million dollars. In 2005, Macy’s become the main sponsor of the festival and continues to be today.
This family-friendly annual summer event brings thousands of people to the city to enjoy well-known Grammy-award winning artists and legendary, chart-topping performers, as well as new singers breaking into the music industry. Dancing, dining, shopping, and entertainment are enjoyed by all ages throughout the weekend.
The line-up of performers for the 2012 festival includes Dennis Edwards & The Temptations Review, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Midnight Star, The O’Jays, and KEM. Other artists will be announced soon to complete the music-packed agenda.
Favorite singers from the past 50 years, such as Luther Vandross and Duke Ellington, will be recognized through a video salute during the festival.
Cincinnati printing companies are no doubt contracted to handle printing services required for the various components of this large event. Flyer, brochure, and poster printing projects will probably be underway in preparation for promoting the festival.
Tickets and more information can be found on the Macy’s Music Festival website or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
