InCuya Lineup Announced: New Order, Avett Brothers, SZA, Awolnation
– InCuya Music Festival
InCuya Music Festival, the new AEG Presents / Rock And Roll Hall of Fame event taking place in downtown Cleveland Aug. 25-26, has announced its lineup, topped by New Order, The Avett Brothers, SZA, and Awolnation with many others playing event overlooking Lake Erie on Malls B and C.
New Order appears to be a big get for the festival, as the English “Blue Monday” hitmakers have not performed in 2018 and only did a handful of U.S. dates in 2017 including Riot Fest in Chicago, Coachella and the Hollywood Bowl according to Pollstar’s records.
Other artists on the bill include The Revivalists (repped by Phil Egenthal who just joined Paradigm Talent Agency) Cake, K. Flay, Earl Sweatshirt, Daniel Caesar, Yuna, Tank And The Bangas, Rock and Roll hall of Fame inductee Booker T. Jones and many others.
Along with 10 hours of music per day, InCuya will offer fan activation areas throughout the festival site spotlighting some of Cleveland’s award-winning chefs and restaurants. Tickets go on sale April 24, with early-bird discounts VIP packages and other options. Admission to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Aug. 24-27 is included with any ticket purchase.
Ticket prices increase May 7.
“Cleveland is on the rise, and it’s the perfect time to bring a world-class music festival downtown,” says Steve McHale, co-founder of Cleveland Concert Company which is co-producing the event and newly formed for the InCuya festival.
“Our local investment community believes in this event. With AEG Presents producing and having the support from the Office of the Mayor, Destination Cleveland, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, we are excited to align the InCuya vision with our city’s renaissance.”
AEG Presents senior vice president Joe Litvag added, “The City of Cleveland has such a rich history and deep relationship with all genres of music, and InCuya is a celebration of that depth and diversity. We are excited to bring our festival experience to Cleveland, delivering a lineup and experience that promises something special for everyone. It will be an event that the entire City can be proud of.”
AEG already puts on Rock On The Range as well as the Buckeye Super Countryfest in Columbus, Ohio.
The announcement comes as major festivals continue to sprout up in the U.S., including Grandoozy festival in Denver launched by Superfly with consultation from AEG’s Rocky Mountains office.
Live Nation also recently announced the new Seven Peaks country music festival in Colorado headlined by Dierks Bentley.
Yet another new fest is Adult Swim’s inaugural festival in Los Angeles, which will be headlined by Run The Jewels but no other artists have been announced yet.
