Large Turnout Expected for Missouri Muzic Fest
COLUMBIA - The Missouri Muzic Fest will take place at the Boone County Fairgrounds this weekend and organizeres are expecting thousands to attend.
The three-day festival will feature more than 50 performers, a nightclub, and continuous Mixed Martial Arts demonstrations. Among the performers scheduled are Chingy, Tech n9ne, and Blu Sky of LMFAO.
Event Coordinator Jeff Lamb said that this is one of the biggest music events to come through Columbia.
"I've done multiple events over the past 20 years and I've never seen anything this big in Columbia with this many multi-platinum artists."
Because the event is expected to draw in so many people, security is a top concern of the organizers.
Event organizers said that some performers will bring their own security and that the Muzic Fest team will also have their own security guards scattered throughout the festival.
The event takes place September 2-4. Activities will take place from 11 a.m. - midnight each day.
