About this Event

What? Music and Arts Festival returns for its second year, inviting attendees to experience big festival ambiance in Columbus, Ohio's close-knit Franklinton community. The festival is a daylong event bringing together the experiences of a musical festival with that of an art festival. The event features live art, art galleries, art installations, music in the form of bands and DJs, interactive experiences, health and wellness, food and culture—all coming together to spark a full day and night of curiosity and creativity.

Festival goers can tour the art gallery featuring 150+ artists representing a mixture of creative mediums; stir their soul with a variety of musical artists performing live on two custom-built stages; immerse themselves in interactive experiences that encourage play, thought and wonderment; and ground their mind, body and soul through a series of holistic wellness workshops and activities.

What? Music and Arts Festival 2019 will be held at 400 West Rich in Columbus, Ohio. The venue serves as a dynamic, multi-functional arts complex—a place for the creative class to meet, network, collaborate, brainstorm and do what they do best—create. 400 West rich is perfectly located in Franklinton, the center of Columbus, Ohio's maker culture and independent art scene. This community is experiencing a renaissance and events like What? Music and Arts Festival are helping to bring art and music to the forefront.

Our multi-generational, multi-cultural attendees create a palpable synergy that defines the festival’s vibe. Ultimately, the connection, creation, and collaboration among festival goers makes the event what it is.
