Third day added to Cincinnati Music Festival lineup

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Music Festival announced Thursday that it will add an additional day to its lineup.

The 54-year-old, second largest annual R&B festival will add Throwback Thursday, extending the celebration from July 23-25.

Throwback Thursday will offer a more intimate experience than the main stage festival. The music will pay tribute to the history of Cincinnati Music Festival . Disk jockeys will play artists that have taken the stage in Cincinnati over the years.

There will also be a fashion show to highlight style trends over the decades -- from the bold patterns of the ‘60s to bell bottoms of the ‘70s.

Jason Dunn, vice president of Multicultural and Community Development at the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, said the addition of Throwback Thursday will reflect the historical ties the festival has with the city.

“Extending the Festival to Thursday evening is a great way to both engage the Cincinnati community and attract additional visitors in a celebration of Cincinnati's musical heritage,” Dunn said.

Throwback Thursday will take place from 7 p.m.- 11 p.m. July 23 at the East Club Lounge of Paul Brown Stadium.

Tickets cost $25 , and cocktail attire is required.
