re·viv·al (riˈvīvəl) noun: an instance of something becoming popular active or important again.
Music has the unique ability to break down barriers – of generations, of cultures, and of prejudice. It can express what others struggle to say, inspire change, and bring people together. Great music has the power to transform, and that is what the Downtown Dayton Revival is all about: bringing great music to Dayton, OH.
There is a vibrant music scene in Dayton as well as a rich musical history. From providing the roots of funk music to producing bands like Guided By Voices and The Breeders, this city has been recognized for its contributions to musical history. It is time to bring the national spotlight back.
Born out of a desire to bring the best in music to the region and showcase our own homegrown rock stars, the Downtown Dayton Revival will be a showcase of unforgettable acts. The line up for the inaugural festival has been handcrafted to deliver the top talents in the industry. Festival goers will have the opportunity to hear Grammy award winning chart-toppers as well as get the chance to be exposed to some amazing, local artists.
Music is powerful, and Dayton has the chance to welcome it into the heart of the city this Fall.
