HEIGHTS MUSIC HOP
The Heights Music Hop expands to Coventry this year, adding our neighborhood to Cedar-Lee and Cedar-Fairmount for a three-day music citywide music festival from September 7th-9th. Mac's will host two acts on Thursday, September 7th.
Featuring free performances across the three nights, the Heights Music Hop showcases live music in a variety of genres, in restaurants, bars, shops and other Heights businesses. Since it began in 2013, with six venues in the Cedar Lee district, the Hop has grown each year, adding more venues and performers.
Last year, it expanded to add a second night and a second district, with the addition of Cedar Fairmount, and an estimated 5,000 people attended the 2016 Heights Music Hop. This year’s addition of Coventry Village venues offers even more options for exciting programming in three iconic business districts, totaling almost 30 venues and more than 60 performances.
The 2017 Heights Music Hop also will feature a silent disco. Planned for the open space at Lee Road and Meadowbrook Boulevard, on Saturday evening, Sept. 9, the silent disco will offer a dance party in which participants will pay a small fee and receive a headset from which to choose their personal dance music from a selection of DJ’s performing live on site. Local beverages will be available for purchase at the silent disco, with beer served by The BottleHouse and wine poured by CLE Urban Winery. Silent disco tickets will be available for pre-sale via the Grog Shop’s website or at the silent disco entrance on Sept. 9.
The Heights Music Hop is free and open to the public, although some venues or performances may limit underage attendees. The silent disco, on Sept. 9 in Cedar Lee, will require paid admission and is open to those ages 21 and older. Many family-friendly activities are planned for the festival, including age-appropriate performances and interactive events, as well as a kids’ area provided by Family Connections.
Heights Music Hop is presented by FutureHeights and is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
