Ice Miller Supports Fashion Meets Music Festival in Columbus, OH

June 25, 2014 -  COLUMBUS, OH - Ice Miller is excited to be the exclusive law firm sponsor of the Fashion Meets Music Festival (FMMF) taking place in the Arena District over Labor Day weekend 2014.  The three-day, inaugural celebration  “debuts a unique combination, fusing two complementary art forms, music and fashion, together as one entertainment platform experience.” FMMF expects 250 bands and 300 fashion and music brands to participate, and expects to draw nearly 120,000 people.

Fashioned after other music festivals including South by Southwest and Coachella, FMMF was a natural fit for Central Ohio, home to the country’s third-highest concentration of fashion designers, including the headquarters of leading retailers L Brands and Abercrombie & Fitch. 
 
The outing will begin on August 29th through the 31st, and will include three nights of concerts at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion, McFerson Commons, Nationwide Arena and Huntington Park. Fashion runways and the music and retail company exhibitors will be located within the Greater Columbus Convention Center, ground zero for the whole festival. Adjacent bars in the Short North will host smaller-scale festival concerts – similar to what is done at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. Finally, Nationwide Boulevard from High Street to Neil Avenue will be transformed into a streetscape of various cuisine and beverage selections; complete with gourmet food trucks, aerial zip lines, and one of North America’s largest Gondolas, towering 100 feet tall.
 
Tickets will be required for some of the concerts, while others will be free to the public. A VIP reception will take place on Thursday night, August 28th.
 
“Ice Miller is proud to support FMMF and the Columbus community by making our ‘neighborhood’ a fun and fashionable place to be,” said Deputy Managing Partner Jim Davidson.  “Ice Miller’s Columbus office has been located in the Arena District for over a decade, when it was one of the first law firms to move to the area back in 2001.  We are excited to contribute to the success of this inaugural event and to the economic benefits a festival of this size will bring to our City.”
