‘Meet Us In The Tunnel’ Lineup & Ticket Information
But it calling it at music festival hardly describes it at all, so says its founder. Put on by AGAR and Nederlander Entertainment, it has live artwork installations, skateboard demonstrations, local vendors and other interactive experiences in addition to the music.
And all underground at Cincinnati’s underutilized Riverfront Transit Center. It goes from 6:30 p.m.-1:30 a.m., and brings a unique twist to music and art festivals that has the cool catchphrase of “meet us in the tunnel.” This year is the fourth annual event.
“UBAHN is so much more than a music festival that happens to be underground, “said Josh Heuser Founder of AGAR and Ubahn.
“It’s a true celebration of music and artistic expression that plays out in a space as unique as the festival itself. In the tunnel, skateboarding demos, street art installations, music-inspired merchandise, light activations and two stages of carefully curated regional and national acts all combine in an amazing experience that reflects the diversity and passions of our audience.
“That’s what makes it so special and what keeps us coming back with new and different ways to please the crowd.”
Ubahn Fest features live performances on two stages including performances by Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Big Boi, Lacrae and many more that will be announced prior to the show.
Tickets are $99 for the early bird Two-Day Pass and $250 for the limited availability VIP Pass.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with AGAR and the UBAHN Festival,” said Nederlander Entertainment Vice President Steve Liberatore. “The eclectic setting of an underground tunnel with overflowing artistic expression makes this an unmatched cultural experience. The unique UBAHN space allows us to bring artists to Cincinnati who otherwise would not have a proper setting to perform while promoting these artists and the genre in this market as a whole.
“We look forward to growing the AGAR vision of UBAHN into something truly spectacular.”
