Since 2012, Bunbury Music Festival has brought great music, good beer and food, and unforgettable memories to the banks of the Ohio River each summer. The three-day music fest, which takes place at Sawyer Point & Yeatman’s Cove, has historically been an alternative and indie rock event. This year, it was under the new ownership of PromoWest Productions. While bands such as The Black Keys, Walk the Moon, and Twenty One Pilots kept Bunbury close to its roots, bands such as The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Snoop Dogg were a step in a different—but much welcomed—direction. Other changes this year included fewer bands and fewer stages, allowing fans to have a more intimate concert experience—something PromoWest, a Columbus-based music promotion company, prides itself on. Bunbury also celebrated a big “first” this year: with 20,000 fans attending on Friday, Bunbury had its first sell-out crowd. I’ve been attending since 2013, so it is nice to see the attendance and national exposure grow each year. With four years and a sell-out crowd under their belt, I think it is safe to say the organizers of Bunbury know what they are doing, and I am already excited for the summer of 2016.
