FMMF – Fashion Meets Music Festival

download (3)Now that summer is fully upon us, a music lover’s mind turns to the thought of festivals.  And whether you are looking for the Americana experience of a Merlefest or the alternative/new rock experience of a Vans Warped Tour.  This summer offers something new for music lovers in Ohio.  A rare opportunity to merge several compelling interests in music.  For three nights in August — the 29th through 31st to be precise — the short north of Columbus will be turned into a music and fashion hybrid experience.  As you have heard Mrs. Dr. J and I talk about this on the radio program, we are excited to see such an eclectic mix of bands and musicians come to Columbus to play for this festival.

This particular event will also incorporate urban camping and an extensive marketplace and expo space!

So, tune into Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative for the next several weeks to learn more about the unique culture and music event that is coming to our fine state in a few months!

We will also talk about the bands and artists that we saw at Midpoint Music Fest this past weekend.  For the record, Dayton’s own Motel Beds were amazing at MPMF this year!
