Cirque du Womp is producing our very first music and arts festival this summer, called THE BLASTOFF. We look forward to creating and playing in a boundless magical setting on over 100 acres of open land in Western Ohio with you. The fest will feature music from a variety of genres, diverse and interactive performance, and art installations that will inspire the masses. Three-dimensional string art playgrounds, teepee hideaway huts, free form nature walks, a solid selection of workshops, an artist panel discussion, community building exercises, drum circle bonfires, and of course, K@DOG and his Cirque du Womp freakshow, will fuse together for two nights of sensational wonder. It’s time for Blastoff !
