Bash On The Bay Lineup Announced
The line up of entertainers who will be performing at the annual Bash on the Bay Music Festival this coming August was announced this past month. Bash on the Bay 6 is again planned as a two-day outdoor music festival at the Put-in-Bay Airport on South Bass Island, Wednesday, August 23rd, and Thursday, August 24th, and will be headlined by two megastars, international superstar Pitbull and country music superstar Luke Bryan.
Wednesday night’s headliner is GRAMMY-winning American rap artist, Pitbull. Hitting the scene in 1999 with “I Know You Want Me,” Mr. Worldwide continued with Latin hip hop hits such as “Don’t Stop the Party,” “Timber,” and “Fireball.” He has packed arenas and amphitheaters coast to coast and performed for millions worldwide.
Thursday night’s headliner is multi-award-winning singer, songwriter, and television personality Luke Bryan. Bryan has been belting out country anthems since 2007 and has five times been named country entertainer of the year.
Opening for Pitbull on Wednesday is Elle King. Playing on her southeastern Ohio roots, Grammy-nominee and ACM and CMA Award-winning King meshes rock, pop, and country with gospel and other bluesy sounds into a style that’s all-renegade. Opening for Bryan on Thursday are nine-time Grammy nominees, and Grammy winner for 2022 for Best Country Duo / Group Performance, Brothers Osborne. Artists filling out the day include up-and-comer and CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year-winner Dylan Scott, Adam Doleac and the Cory Farley Band.
Tickets went on sale on Thursday, January 12th through eTix.com.
