Happening Aug. 29-31, FMMF revealed its first round of artists appearing in Columbus’ Arena District at summer’s end.  Melding music and fashion, the festival will serve up more than 250 artists appearing on seven indoor and outdoor stages plus two fashion performance stages complete with runways.  The festival will also present a fashion and retail marketplace in the Columbus Convention Center. 

For you out-of-towners, the Columbus’ Arena District is home to the Nationwide Arena, LC Pavilion, Huntington Park, Nationwide Boulevard and McFerson Commons.

Several events included in the festival’s rollout are free of charge.  This could be the only music/fashion event you’ll ever attend that includes camping.

The very first FMMF even has its own mantra, proudly proclaiming “3 days, 2 loves, 1 place – Unboxed in Columbus, Ohio, Labor Day weekend 2014.”

Although many of the festival’s events are presented at no charge to fans, FMMF is selling tickets for additional fun.  The $10 “Expo” ticket gets you up close and personal with fashion and music personalities along with the chance to visit the Expo Runway Stage and have access to more than 300 fashion and music retailers.  Other options include $35 after party badges and $200 “Access to Excess” passes that include four expo tickets and access to VIP stage areas.
