Earlier this year, local promoter Thomas Fox, the guy who helped turn Brite Winter Festival into the mammoth music festival that it’s become, announced plans to launch AGUMBOOT Music Festival, a summer music festival slated to take place on the lakefront.

Fox has just announced details for the festival. Because Fox was unable to use a lakefront location, he'll hold the festival on the Dunham Tavern grounds on July 15.

“Organizers raised $10,000 to make an emerging music celebration but encountered resistance in activating the festival on the water due to ‘demonstration zones’ and security concerns surrounding the convention,” he says in a press release. “This challenge could have postponed the festival, but it is no longer in the Cleveland ethos to wait for next year. The festival will take place as scheduled on July 15th but relocated to the midtown green-space of The Dunham Tavern.”

The festival lineup includes a dozen groups from Cleveland and across the United States. Acts such as Saintseneca (Columbus), Mimicking Birds (Portland, Oregon), Sweetgrass (Cleveland), Chrome Pony (Nashville), ONA (Huntington), Varsity (Chicago), Village Bicycle (Cleveland), Meridian (Cleveland), Whiskey Hollow (Cleveland), Dolfish (Cleveland) and Jul Big Green (Cleveland) will perform on three stages.

The festival will run from 4 p.m, to midnight. General admission tickets are available now for $10 at or for $15 at the door.
