Flyover Fest, a multidiscipline arts fest dreamed up by local publisher Two Dollar Radio, returns for its second year with a bigger, more diverse lineup.

Incorporating musicians (Chicago rapper Open Mike Eagle, Columbus expat Yowler), poets (Kaveh Akbar, occasional Alive contributor Hanif Abdurraqib), authors (Brian Allen Carr), experimental filmmakers (Guy Maddin) and more, the three-day festival celebrates all things creative, with a welcome focus on the Midwest, aka flyover country.

Flyover kicks off with a free Yowler concert at Two Dollar Radio's South Side headquarters on Thursday, May 10, and continues through Sunday, May 12, with events taking place at the Wexner Center, Bossy Grrls Pin Up Joint, Ace of Cups and Spacebar.
