Bunbury gets rolling this weekend


The banks of the Ohio River are hosting a musical extravaganza this weekend as the Bunbury Music Festival returns to Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove in Cincinnati . The event Friday, Saturday and Sunday features 80 live performances on six stages.

"You really can't beat being on the river down there," said Bunbury marketing manager Brian Kitzmiller.  "The river stage alone, which is down on the Serpentine Wall, has the river backdrop; the bridge is behind there; and then the main stage has the arena in the background.  It's fantastic."

The third annual festival includes Fall Out Boys, Paramore, The Flaming Lips, Empire of the Sun, Young the Giant, Fitz and the Tantrums, Cage the Elephant, Foxy Shazam, Holy Ghost and many other performers.

Kitzmiller says Bunbury is expected to draw almost 60,000 people during its three-day run.
