The National‘s hometown festival, Homecoming, will be returning to Cincinnati May 8 & 9 and the lineup has now been revealed. It will feature two unique National performances including a performance of High Violet in full for its 10th anniversary. The lineup also includes Patti Smith and Her Band, Sylvan Esso, Of Monsters and Men, Local Natives, Japanese Breakfast, Phosphorescent, Hamilton Leithauser, Jay Som, Sudan Archives, Velvet Negroni, Wussy and Triiibe.

“It’s great to invite our friends and fans to our hometown – the place where we all began our lives as listeners and musicians,” says Bryan Devendorf of The National. “Putting on this intimate event on the banks of the Ohio River is meaningful to us and our families. We are so very grateful.” Tickets for Homecoming are on sale Friday, November 22 at 10 AM

Running concurrently in Cincinnati will be MusicNOW, the contemporary music festival founded by Bryce Dessner in 2006, which will be in its 14th edition in 2020. On May 8 and 9 there will be late night events for those who want to keep the evening going after Homecoming, as well as a full day of programming on May 10. Lineup and ticket info are still to be announced.
