The Scoop: The first annual Fashion Meets Music Festival (FMMF) organizers held a press conference today, in which they announced that the Columbus, Ohio-based festival, which will take place from August 29th to 31st, will feature performances by alternative and indie rock outfits O.A.R., Future Islands, and Maps and Atlases, and DJs Rusko and Destructo, with rapper/singer R. Kelly headlining the festival on August 29th. FMMF also announced the dates for next year’s festival, which will be held September 4th-6th, 2015.
The Spin: While this is a new annual event in development, it’s good to see FMMF putting next year’s festival together already, as well as continuing to expand the list of musical performances and fashion designers in this year’s already packed lineup, which includes acts like Circa Survive, Local Natives, Cold War Kids, New Found Glory, Parachute, Switchfoot, and NGBRs, as well as international fashion brands, such as Anti-Label Clothing, , MALVAR = STEWART, Fresh-Cut Textiles, and Rox & Royalty.
