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.
