The Flyover Fest
“We want to plant a flag with the Flyover Fest, not only to show off the great creativity of people in Columbus, but also to bring creatives from the region together in a spirit of camaraderie. It’s perhaps more important now than ever,” says Festival Organizer Justin McIntosh.
The Flyover Fest is an inclusive and fresh 3-day festival in the North Campus and South Clintonville neighborhoods. Through multiple arts in walkable, distinctive venues, our goal is to engage the city, stimulate creativity, and spark conversation.
Like festival founders Two Dollar Radio, our featured guests are too loud to ignore. These are internationally acclaimed artists, often from the Midwest, who demand attention through their ideas, art, and hustle. You can find their work in literature, music, film, podcasts, and more.
Planning for the festival was coordinated by a committee, including former Columbus Alive Editor-in-Chief Justin McIntosh, Tom Konitzer of Outer Orbit Booking, and Eric Obenauf and Brett Gregory of Two Dollar Radio. Programming occurring at the Wexner Center for the Arts was done in cooperation with David Filipi, Chris Stults, and Lane Czaplinski.
