All of this and more. See our basic info and event site map on the "event info" page.
Will I fit in/be comfortable at the event?
It is our explicit goal to create an event that brings together diverse groups under a common set of values, which include love, freedom, and self-expression. From musicians, to skaters, to nerds, to punks, we should all feel at home in Cloud City. Take it from one of our 9/7/19 festival attendees, who said: "If you are able to, please do this again. This was fantastic. As a black man in Columbus, there are few spaces I feel comfortable just existing in considering the state of CPD, gentrification, etc. This event took a lot of what I know about this city, stripped away the bad, and put all the good on a pedestal front and center. Such great energy. I really appreciate the work that went into this and I feel rejuvenated after having attended."
Is the event accessible?
We strive to be as inclusive as possible, but sometimes resource constraints get in the way. We can't plan for everything, so if you have a specific accessibility-related need, we ask that you please email us ahead of time and let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who is behind Cloud City?
Cloud City is not a top down festival, but rather a community-driven ground up experience. The team includes many local artists, creatives, and entrepreneurs. We will always be transparent about who is involved - in fact, we will be doing tons of promo of the artists and organizations we do business with. Plus, our social media accounts boast photos and descriptions of our people. See our "partners" tab for more info.

How can I perform at Cloud City?
If you are interested, fill out this form. Our team throws other events all year long, so we have a good handle on the local scene and an ability to curate shows. We very rarely take submissions. If we don't know you, it's likely because you haven't done proper networking. Just like any industry, a cold email is unlikely to work - you have to show up to events and support the existing scene if you want to be supported by it.

Is Cloud City trying to do too much?
Yeah. That’s the point. In our humble opinion, traditional and commercial art events don’t do enough and we are doing a lot so can push artist platforms to evolve, with the ultimate goal of changing our city into a place that supports all creatives and their beautiful and noble pursuits. We know we can accomplish a lot with a grassroots, relational approach. Top-down events can only do so much, but ground-up events like ours hold many possibilities, as our organizers make space for people doing radical things to dream up, curate, and manage components of the event. It takes a city to build a city. Most cities of today, like Columbus, are built by the few, but cities of tomorrow, like Cloud City, are being built by the people. If you’re concerned we’re doing too much, kindly voice your concern to yourself OR hit us up to offer help. The people who are crazy enough to think they can pull of epic things are the only ones who ever do. Let’s build epic things together.
