CINCINNATI — Organizers of the Cincinnati Music Festival have postponed their news conference to reveal this year's festival lineup.

The announcement was originally scheduled to take place at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the East Club Lounge of Paul Brown Stadium.

"We will send an updated day and time for the announcement as finishing details are made to a robust 2020 Cincinnati Music Festival lineup," stated Rich Walburg, Director of Media and Creative Services for Game Day, the company handling communications for festival organizers, in a press release.

The 2020 music festival presented by Procter & Gamble will be held July 23-25 in the stadium. Joe Santangelo, owner of the Santangelo Group and longtime promoter of the Cincinnati Music Festival was slated to share the lineup at Tuesday's press conference.

He was to be joined by Jason Dunn of the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, Julie Kirkpatrick of Meet NKY and Bob Bedinghaus with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Last year's Cincinnati Music Festival featured performances by Mary J. Blige, Maxwell and Earth, Wind and Fire.

The Cincinnati Music Festival is one of the largest urban music festivals in the country and is Cincinnati’s largest tourism weekend of the year, according to a study by the University of Cincinnati.
