The 18th annual Dayton Music Fest will be held Friday, Oct. 21 and Saturday, Oct. 22 at Blind Bob’s and Yellow Cab Tavern in downtown Dayton.

Organizers are planning an event that particularly assembles legacy bands with new and contemporary acts.

“It’s been exciting seeing how this year’s lineup has come together,” said Nathan Peters, Dayton Music Fest organizer, in a release. “From some amazing Dayton reunions, to getting Haunting Souls who haven’t played with this original lineup since 1989, and to work with some of our favorite acts that are up and coming today, this will be an incredible year for Dayton Music Fest!”

The lineup includes 20 bands along with MCs, hip hop artists and DJs. Both nights will begin with five “Songwriters in the Round” at Yellow Cab Tavern at 6 p.m. Full bands start at each venue around 8 p.m.

“We love our Downtown Dayton music scene and the proximity of the Yellow Cab and Blind Bob’s and staggering of band start times means you can walk back and forth and catch every single act if you wanted to,” Peters said. “Both venues are in the DORA district too. So, you could even catch a drink on the way as you walk to the venues.”

Two-day weekend tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at doors. Single day tickets will be available at doors on Friday and Saturday for $15.

Blind Bob’s is located at 430 E. Fifth Street. Yellow Cab Tavern is located at 700 E. Fourth Street.
