For the second year in a row, one of the most popular music festivals in Ohio has been postponed.

Earlier today, organizers announced that the Cincinnati Music Festival, originally scheduled for July 22-24 in 2021, has been postponed again, this time to July 21-23, 2022, due to health concerns caused by the coronavirus. Organizers hope to bring back the same headlining acts, which include Janet Jackson, Snoop Dogg and Charlie Wilson, to perform at next year’s festival.
