Ingenuity Fest may have a new home in its 8th year, at docks 30 and 32 on the lakefront, north of Cleveland Browns Stadium, but its focus remains the same , as a celebration of art and technology that is uniquely Cleveland. To that end, 2012’s music lineup, running from September 14th through the 16th, is one heavy with artists from Northeast, Ohio, with a few national acts sprinkled in. Veterans of the Cleveland music scene and readers of I Rock Cleveland will surely recognize names like Megachurch, Shivering Timbers, RA Washington, and The Very Knees from gigs around town, while R. Ring, featuring Kelley Deal of the Breeders, lends a name that a wider audience should also recognize. The full lineup is below. More details on Ingenuity Fest’s musical offerings as well as information on all of the other performances, galleries and presentations can be found at the Ingenuity Fest website.
