July 12, 2013, Cincinnati, Ohio.
The PromoWest Productions-promoted festival takes place June 1-3 and will return to downtown Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove.
General admission and VIP tickets are on sale now.
“We are very excited about the lineup we put together for 2018,” PromoWest Productions’ Scott Stienecker said in a testament. “The caliber, strength and depth of this year’s festival is attributed, in large part, to the city of Cincinnati and its continued support to make this one of the premier boutique musical festivals in the country.”
Jack White is already confirmed to headline several festivals this year, including Boston Calling and Governors Ball in New York. The White Stripes singer hasn’t toured since 2015. That outing included sold-out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden Arena, which moved 14,579 tickets and grossed $770,638, and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, which sold 13,751 tickets and grossed $538,404, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Box office.
Bunbury marks blink-182’s first confirmed festival appearance this year. The band played a few festivals in 2017, in addition to completing a string of dates in the U.S. and abroad. Highlights include an appearance at Life Is Beautiful and a sold-out concert at Express Live! in Columbus, Ohio, which sold 5,200 tickets and grossed $234,000.
The Chainsmokers had a successful 2017, with a North American tour that grossed more than $17.8 million and included sold out shows at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre ($822,359), Merriweather Post Pavilion ($1.1 million) in Columbia, Md., BOK Center (368,998) in Tulsa, Okla., and AmericanAirlines Arena ($624,932) in Miami.
Post Malone enjoyed a successful 2017 as well, as his “Stoney Tour” sold out theaters and amphitheaters across the North America, including the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas ($101,000) and The Great Saltair Amphitheatre ($212,890) in Magna, Utah. The hip-hop phenomenon is booked this year for Coachella and Governors Ball.
Incubus also completed a tour of its own last year, hitting amphitheaters and arenas. Highlights include sets at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl ($1 million) and at the PNC Bank Arts Center ($310,5640) in Holmdel, N.J.
