The July 23-25 event will also feature sets from Fantasia, Tony Toni Tone, Tank and Kirk Whalum.

The Cincinnati Music Festival has been bringing the country’s biggest and brightest R&B, soul and funk legends to the banks of the Ohio River for more than half a century. This summer’s lineup is no exception, with such icons as Janet Jackson, Charlie Wilson, The O’Jays and Snoop Dogg topping the list of acts slated to take the stages at Paul Brown Stadium on July 23-25.

The weekend throwdown that draws heavily from all over the Midwest as well as every corner of the nation, will kick off on the 23rd with Vibe‘s Party with a Purpose, headlined by rapper Biz Markie and BJ the Chicago Kid. Wilson and Snoop lead the charge on Friday night, with help from Fantasia, Tony Toni Tone and Jonathan Butler.

Saturday night will find Tank, Maroon 5 keyboardist and solo star PJ Morton and saxophonist Kirk Whalum opening for Jackson and the O’Jays at the event whose headline sponsor is hometown consumer goods giant P&G. “This is the strongest lineup for the music festival that we’ve had in quite some time,” said festival promoter Joe Santangelo in a statement. “Having Janet Jackson on our festival lineup for the first time ever to headline Saturday night, along with favorites Charlie Wilson and Fantasia, just makes this weekend even more exciting.”
