Anyone who says Columbus is boring hasn’t been awake for the last few years.  We have the pleasure of having some of the coolest venues hosting some of the biggest shows in America (Rock on the Range anyone?)  We have the biggest fireworks show in the midwest, which has gotten better and better thanks to the money that developers and Columbus have poured into our downtown area.

Now comes FMMF (Fashion Meets Music Festival)-The nation’s largest and first collaborative fusion festival to incorporate music with fashion brands.
The Fashion Meets Music Festival – August 29-31, 2014

             And check this out, we here in Columbus get to greet this event for the first time head on.  When I was younger I saw the lineups of big festivals or events around the world like SXSW, Austin City Limits, Sonisphere and even the warped tour and I always wished we had that kind of scene.  Columbus now boasts some of the best events and sports teams world wide and we the people of Cbus have front row seats.

“Fashion and music have always informed, infused, and influenced one another – from
Elvis’ blue suede shoes and The Ramones’ iconic leather jackets, to Gaga’s outlandish
gear and Daft Punk’s robo-wear, fashion and music simply inspire and further each
other’s expressions,” said FMMF Communications Director, Melissa Dickson.

         Check out the line up and leave us some comments below.  Who are you excited to see, where are you meeting friends, what artist is top of your list?  Anything you want to know we will help direct you there as well!

Columbus Poised to Create First Fashion and Music Festival – Labor Day 2014

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Fashion Meets Music Festival, FMMF, has announced Labor Day
weekend 2014 as the date of its inaugural festival in Columbus, Ohio. The three day
event debuts a unique combination, fusing two complementary art forms, music and
fashion, together as one entertainment platform experience. “Events like FMMF reinforce
the authentic, fun spirit of our city” said Brian Ross, Experience Columbus President &
CEO, “bringing national music acts and fashion designers into one location for three days
is a great way to showcase Columbus.”

“Fashion and music have always informed, infused, and influenced one another – from
Elvis’ blue suede shoes and The Ramones’ iconic leather jackets, to Gaga’s outlandish
gear and Daft Punk’s robo-wear, fashion and music simply inspire and further each
other’s expressions,” said FMMF Communications Director, Melissa Dickson.

The festival, featuring seven indoor and outdoor stages, two fashion performance stages
complete with runways, an urban campground, and a fashion and music retail
marketplace located in the Columbus Convention Center, will make its appearance in the
epicenter of the Arena District Friday August 29th thru Sunday the 31st. The Arena District
is home to Nationwide Arena, the LC Pavilion, Huntington Park, Nationwide Boulevard,
and McFerson Commons – all of which are poised to participate in the unique festival.

“This is an exciting and unparalleled festival footprint,” said Greg Poppel, Director of
Operations. It’s unique in that it isn’t in a field or a designated area, it resides in the
crosshairs of the 15th largest city in the United States. Operationally, we are
consummating a new experience for Columbus combining retail, fashion, and music as a
collaboration – all in one place, at one time.”

FMMF positions itself as the first collaborative fusion festival to incorporate music, with
music inspired fashion brands as a unified live entertainment experience, under the brand
mantra, “3 days, 2 loves, 1 place – Unboxed in Columbus, Ohio, Labor Day Weekend
2014.”

In addition to music and fashion, Nationwide Boulevard from High Street to Neil Avenue
will be transformed into a streetscape of various cuisine and beverage selections;
