CINCINNATI - This Sunday marks the end of the Bunbury Music Festival in downtown Cincinnati for its second year.
The festival was founded in 2012 by veteran music promoter Bill Donabedian, who helped begin the MidPoint Music Festival and was the former managing director of Fountain Square.
Over the course of three days, bands from all over the world play on six stages, including headlining acts FUN., MGMT and The National. The festival also has a strong local presence with performances by WALK THE MOON, Buffalo Killers, You, You're Awesome, Daniel Martin Moore, Josh Eagle and more.
The event wraps up at Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove Sunday after kicking off Friday along a one-mile stretch of the Ohio River.
"Bunbury has taken great pride in creating a truly unique fan friendly atmosphere complete
with amazing sounds and sights taking every detail into account. We want our fans to take our event personally and we make all of the event arrangements from their point of view," said Donabedian in a release.
The name "Bunbury" is derived from an Oscar Wilde play, "The Importance of Being Earnest," and means "to have a made up excuse to get out of doing something boring."
With more than 80 acts slated to play over the course of the weekend, thousands showed up for the event.
Below is a list of bands and artists taking the stage Sunday beginning at 2 p.m.
