About What? Music and Arts Festival

What? Music and Arts Festival is made possible by What? Productions, a team of Columbus natives who share a deep passion for the arts, music and our community.

The festival started as a passion project for a core group of Columbus artists and their supportive networks. The creative minds questioned WHAT could they create in Columbus… WHAT could they create that would inspire collaboration…WHAT could they create that would disrupt the ways others think about events… and WHAT could they create that would make a positive impact on the community. From there, What? Music and Arts Festival was born.
