The National return home to Cincinnati this spring, hosting a weekend celebration of music, art, and cultural connections. The band will perform two unique sets over two days at Smale Park. Each day will feature curated support from 20+ acts across two stages with the full lineup coming in early 2018.
During the weekend, the inaugural Homecoming event will be surrounded by several city-wide exhibitions, special performances, and more, including many in association with the 13th installment of MusicNOW. Events will include an installation by ‘A Lot of Sorrow’ collaborator and Icelandic multimedia artist Ragnar Kjartansson at the Cincinnati Art Museum; a premiere of the Cincinnati Ballet with Eighth Blackbird, New York star Justin Peck, and Bryce Dessner; and a special photography exhibition featuring The National, to name a few. Details on MusicNOW offerings will be revealed in early 2018 as well.
