Michelle Williams, R. Kelly to Headline 2014 Fashion Meets Music Festival
It’s no secret that music and fashion go hand in hand, especially when some of the biggest stars in hip-hop and R&B sit front row at Fashion Week and are recognized for their distinct style of dress. The debut of the 2014 Fashion Meets Music Festival brings this concept to the festival circuit this summer with Michelle Williams and R. Kelly set to perform.
Taking place in Columbus, Ohio during Labor Day weekend, the festival will bring over 120 acts to the Midwestern city over the course of three days at some of the area’s staple venues. Other acts include Future Islands, the Menzingers, Maps & Atlases, O.A.R., Rusko and Paper Diamond.
Not only will Michelle be performing but the ‘Say Yes’ singer will also emcee the fest’s kick off gala on Aug. 28 at the Bluestone.
Aside from a full-functioning runway at the city’s Convention Center, there will also be food trucks, aerial zip lines and a 100-foot gondala. Out of towners will also have the opportunity to experience urban camping, which includes WiFi, mobile charging stations and hot showers — definitely not the typical definition of “roughing it.”
Tickets are on sale now. Access to the Excess passes will run you $250 while the EXPO pass will only cost $10. Each of the venues will also be selling tickets to individual shows going on that weekend.
The 2014 Fashion Meets Music Festival will take place Aug. 29 to Aug. 31. For more information on the fest, visit the website here.
