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 and continues to grow on a weekly basis. 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.

There will likely be a civic engagement aspect to Cloud City, so if you’re running voter registration or other campaigns, let us know!
Is Cloud City trying to do too much?
Yeah. That’s the point. Traditional and commercial art festivals 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 festivals can only do so much, but ground-up events like ours hold many possibilities, as our organizers make space for people doing rad shit 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.
