46 beers. 35 bands. 2 days. Pure bewilderment.

Urban Artifact (1660 Blue Rock St. Cincinnati) is very proud to announce its 3rd annual beWILDerfest, happening this Friday Aug 24 at 4 p.m. and Saturday Aug 25 at 12 p.m.

beWILDerfest is a 2-day music and beer boutique festival that celebrates “wild” music and beer – featuring national, regional and local bands.

Over 30 bands will share 3 stages over 2 full days of music.

Headliners for the festival feature newly reunited pop duo Cults, experimental jazz trio Moon Hooch, Ohio indie darlings Saintseneca, local Cincinnati favorites Dawg Yawp and Freekbass, a rap and bluegrass collective called Gangstagrass, the hauntingly catchy rock duo Ed Schrader’s Music Beat and neo funk/soul outfit Bassel & the Supernaturals.

The rest of the lineup will feature some of the area’s most creative musicians and performers.

Music will be split up between 3 stages: Urban Artifact’s upstairs Sanctuary, their taproom lounge and an outside stage in the beer garden.

In addition to the music, beWILDerfest will feature specialty taps all weekend and a special release of Barrel Aged sour beers on Saturday August 25th.

There will be food vendors and activities for those of all ages.

General admission tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the door. VIP tickets are $50 in advance only. You can purchase your tickets today at https://www.cincyticket.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=4184.
