The Ubahn Festival in the number 1 Underground Hip Hop Music Festival to hit the Midwest Featuring some of  Hip Hop’s heavyweights that include Gucci Mane, Big Sean and 2 Chainz, Christian rapper Lecrae and other artists that graced the Ubahn stage  Sept. 8-9 at the Riverfront Transit Center.

“I personally am passionate that we’re the most unique and diverse festival in Cincinnati,”Ubahn co-founder Josh Heuser said.



Last year’s event drew around 6,000 fans to the little-used transit tunnel beneath the Second Street for an eclectic celebration that bounced between DJs, electronic dance music, and rap.  “We collaborated with Nederlander and tried to book a diverse lineup that will bring out a variety of people,” Heuser said. “Lecrae, a Christian hip-hop artist, will be welcomed by a whole new variety of people. Gucci is the trap god, and putting that in the tunnel along with a great emcee like Big Sean, a conscious rapper from the Midwest (Detroit) who is on the verge of pop but is still hip-hop? Every artist we’re looking at has music that is breaking through.”

Attendees were greeted by interactive art installations, skateboard and graffiti demonstrations, clothing vendors and other attractions featured in this year’s Ubahn Festival.
