Downtown Festival announces 2014 dates + Cleveland lineup: War on Drugs, Islands, RJD2 and more

Downtown Events isn’t content with just throwing one measly little two-day music festival in only one measly little city. Why throw just one music festival when you can throw five?

Late last week they announced the Downtown Festival lineup for their first of five festivals set for this fall, with the first being located in Cleveland over the weekend of September 19-20 with The War On Drugs, RJD2, Justin Townes Earle, Com Truise and more all set to appear across the city in various venues. They’ll be following up the first festival with a weekend in Minneapolis a few weeks later, then New York City, then Los Angeles, with the final festival down in Houston over Nov. 14-15.

Some more info from the source:

Downtown Cleveland will take over Grog Shop, House of Blues, and Beachland Ballroom, bringing together high profile national artists and the most compelling emerging artists on unique bills in intimate settings at an affordable price – offering the curation of a large festival at the cost of a club show.

Details of this year’s Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles and Houston events will be released in the coming weeks.
