It’s going to be a massive event in 2023 as this year’s Bash On The Bay is going to have the biggest stars yet! Luke Bryan and Pitbull, who combined have sold over 100 million records, will be putting on an incredible two-day event for Ohio’s music lovers. Elle King will be opening for Pitbull and Brothers Osborne will open for Luke Bryan. Pitbull marks a departure from the norm for the Bash, as he’s the first non-country act to headline. We’re looking forward to inviting some people who maybe haven’t come to the Bash yet because they don’t like country music. This is for sure the biggest line-up ever at the Bash, and we hope you can make it!
