A ticket to Overlay is an experience from start to finish. Immersive, front row, intimate, and original. Watch large scale art transform space in real time, immerse yourself in live indie, experimental, hip hop and EDM music with up-front staging tucked in alleyways and corridors of downtown buildings, sit back and relax in a custom VIP lounge and immerse yourself in 3D image mapping art and a one of a kind Silo Light Show. Carefully curated to integrate ticket holders into the experience, Overlay will become a can't-miss fest.

Art is our yin

Visual artists are the bread and butter of our fest experience. Watch 9 muralists transform downtown buildings in real time. Whether you check in on how they start from a blank canvas, grab a brew and watch it unfold or witness the finishing touches, being part of the visual art experience is something you won't forget.

Music is our yang

Music in in our DNA and we're ready to bring an outdoor fest experience packed with flavor.

With 2 stages, and 15+ bands flexing local and national artists, our lineup will keep your body movin all weekend long.
