The Bunbury 2018 lineup has dropped!
Topping this year’s bill are Jack White, The Chainsmokers, and blink-182, with Post Malone and Incubus billed just underneath them. The seventh-year festival takes place Friday, June 1 to Sunday, June 3 at Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Bunbury 2018 lineup features 19 of 42 unique acts (45.2 percent). Among the acts unique to Bunbury 2018 are blink-182, Dropkick Murphys, Coheed and Cambria, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Fitz & The Tantrums, and Lecrae.
The festival also includes names like Foster the People, Young the Giant, Royal Blood, and Third Eye Blind (also unique to Bunbury 2018).
Though The Chainsmokers and Post Malone features highly on the bill, the lineup is mostly rock-driven. This is interesting given the Bunbury 2017 lineup featured Wiz Khalifa and G-Eazy among the three top-billed names.
Other standouts from lower down the bill include Bishop Briggs, Sir Sly, Black Pistol Fire, and Two Feet. All of them are known for delivering killer live performances and should be climbing up festival bills in the coming years.
Tier two three-day passes are currently priced at $179. Three-day VIP passes are priced at $450. Three-day ultimate VIP passes are priced at $1,399. You can buy tickets here.
I have not attended Bunbury 2018 but have heard good things from those who have attended. It comes across as a solid city festival and if you can make it to Cincinnati, it should be a good time.
