Sonic Temple Arts and Music Festival Tickets
Sonic Temple TicketsThe Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival is a three-day extravaganza featuring headlining performances from multiplatinum and chart-topping rock and metal artists. The inaugural event took place from May 17 to May 19, 2019, at the MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to the music at the festival, attendees enjoyed stand-up comedy performances and spoken word acts, enjoyed an impressive diversity of art installations and could purchase artwork directly from the artists. Rounding out the total experience for all those lucky enough to attend was a large selection of on-site food and drinks from local restaurants.
Mosh, Drink and Be MerryThe Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival took its name from the fourth studio album by the rock and roll band the Cult, 1989's Sonic Temple - the group's best-selling, highest charting album, and, according to many, their best album, featuring songs like "Fire Woman" and 'Sweet Soul Sister." Of course, the Cult was one of the main bands featured at the festival in 2019. All in all, the festival is broken up into three sections or stages, one taking place on each day. Each stage features both musical performances and spoken word or comedy routines. There are periodic intermissions during which fans can leave to get food or drinks or take bathroom breaks. After the shows, there's another chance to check out the art exhibits.
