The Revivalists frontman David Shaw has announced the 2019 edition of his annual Big River Get Down festival, which will return to his hometown of Hamilton, Ohio for its fifth year on September 6th-7th this fall.
The 2019 event will take place at RiversEdge Amphitheater in the Ohio city, located 30 minutes north of Cincinnati. The first day of the festival will feature a satellite event in “An Evening With David Shaw,” featuring an acoustic performance from the singer/guitarist at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts. Day two on Saturday will feature a headlining performance from The Revivalists, in addition to sets from The War and Treaty, Brent Cobb, Southern Avenue, Neal Francis, and Chris Gelbuda. Access to “An Evening With David Shaw” will be available as part of the event’s JAM!LTON VIP Experience package.
“Being able to come back to my hometown and host an event like this is something I’ve always dreamed of doing since I started playing music,” Shaw said about his 2019 event via press release. “It’s exciting to see people from all over the country coming to my hometown to share this experience with us. The Big River Get Down is also a great way for me to give something back to a community that has given me so much. Hamilton has made great strides over the past several years, and I’m thrilled this event can lend a hand in the City’s ongoing renaissance.”
Speaking of giving back, Shaw and his team donate all of the proceeds from the festival to the city’s 4th of July fireworks and RiversEdge Concert Series. Since the event began in 2015, David Shaw’s Big River Get Down has donated over $80,000 to the city of Hamilton.
