WonderBus Music & Arts Festival
WonderBus Music & Arts Festival in Columbus, Ohio, returns for its second year Saturday, August 28 through Sunday 29. Headliners include the party girl herself Kesha, AJR, Wilco, and Grouplove. Largely popular undercard acts include The Band Camino, The Knocks, The Black Pumas, Bob Moses, and St. Paul and the Broken Bones. This two-day festival will take place at The Lawn at CAS, which is right off Olentangy River Road, north of Ohio State’s campus. The vast green lawn is transformed into an inviting and cheerful space with activities, games, and food vendor options. If too much walking usually turns you away from festivals, do not fret. WonderBus is extremely easy for festival-goers of all ages to navigate, with plenty of space to relax and move around.
Beyond the music, WonderBus’s mission is to confront mental health issues and create an open and safe space for people to not just feel heard but also understood. Many festivals preach the stereotypical good vibes and good times motto, but WonderBus is truly driven by its goal to strengthen the conversation on mental health. WonderBus partners with the Ohio State Wexner Center’s department of Physiatry and Behavioral health to help support the mission and carry out the voice of the festival.
Ticket prices start at $189 for the weekend or $109 for one-day passes. For more information and tickets go to Wonderbus Music & Arts Festival website here, or click the link below.
