The event will be held at The ICON Festival Stage at Smale Park and will feature performances from a host of beloved acts, including Patti Smith & Her Band, Pavement, Weyes Blood, The Walkmen, and more. The National will headline and perform a unique set each night as a thank-you to their hometown audience.

“When we launched Homecoming in 2018, we were overwhelmed by the response from the community and by our renewed sense of connection to our hometown. It was such an exciting, memorable weekend and we’ve long hoped to bring it back. We’re honored to return to Cincinnati five years later and be joined by so many of our favorite musicians and friends.” - The National
