RECAP: Bunbury Music Festival 2016

The fifth annual Bunbury Music Festival took place this past weekend in downtown Cincinnati, led by headliners The Killers, Deadmau5 and Florence + The Machine.   
The highly-eclectic lineup – including memorable performances from local classic country & western crooner Jeremey Pinnell, soul soldier Charles Bradley and the horror-funk of Here Come The Mummies - was bolstered by the energetic performances from the pop/rock hybrid sister act Haim, bluesy alt-rockers Holy White Hounds, punk vets Bayside and The Mowgli’s, who returned for their second time to bring their upbeat, sun-drenched indie-pop.
One of the most memorable highlights of the festival took place opening night as The Killers played several songs against a backdrop of the Reds’ Friday Night Fireworks display which was the perfect visual addition to the Las Vegas band’s bombastic arena-sized anthems.  They also played a short cover of the WKRP in Cincinnati TV show theme song.
Once again Bunbury was a booming success and continues to put Cincinnati on the map for music festivals.  Here’s to next year!
