Heights Music Hop

Presented by FutureHeights

September 23 & 24, 2016

Cedar Fairmount & Cedar Lee

Join us for the 4th annual Heights Music Hop! In 2016, we’ve expanded for a double dose of Heights Music Hop events! On Friday, Sept. 23, we’ll hop through the Cedar Fairmount Business District of Cleveland Heights, and on Saturday, Sept. 24, we’ll return to Cedar Lee, which has hosted the Hop for the past three years. Friday night will feature a VIP fundraiser at Nighttown to benefit the Heights Music Hop and FutureHeights.

Of course, the Heights Music Hop is always free, thanks to a generous grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. You’ll witness some of the most eclectic bands and musicians in the Northeast Ohio area, from up-and-comers to popular acts with large followings. The festival’s musical offerings will range from rock to hip hop, jazz to classical and everything in between. We will celebrate the best of our local music scene, our small businesses and our community.

The Heights Music Hop is presented by FutureHeights, a leading nonprofit community-based organization and publisher of the Heights Observer newspaper.

Stay tuned for updates!
