This year marks MadLab's 10th year of Volatility and second in its space at 227 N. 3rd St. In the past we have raised money to pay for our heating & cooling, electrical system, new
ceilings and several other renovations that made our former facility and help with the finishing touches on the renovations of our new place. Now, we look to continue to upgrade the only completely original, alternative arts space in Columbus. So come on out as this year we have even more great bands and entertainment and food than ever before.

Volatility will be held JULY 16th at MadLab, 227 N. 3rd St., Columbus, OH 43215

Admission is $5 for all. Doors open at 3p.

T-Shirts Made on Site!

Thoughtco,, will create a Volatility tshirt you for you right there onsite. They can even do it to the shirt on your back (Though you may have to take it off first). Ain't that cool?


Not only will they have their annual silent art auction where you bid on the art you dig against others, but this year, Iron Artist, moves to Volatility. Iron Artist, where artists are given a special secret ingredient and asked to make art from it, improv art, if you will, from 4-7, Judging from 7-8 and you decide the winner.


And finally you will be able to capture your experience with our professional photographer, Meghan Ralson from Photolosophys, Or with her props and professional setup, pretend you were somewhere else (in a MadLab tshirt).

At this point, there is almost nothing you can't do at Volatility. Legally.
Volatility has been instrumental in MadLab's ongoing survival and space improvements. To date, we have raised over $35,000 from this fundraiser and have made improvements that include, but are not limited to our heating and cooling system, electrical upgrades, ceiling replacement, a new projector and much more. Volatility continues to be the largest single fundraising event of our year and we thank all those that volunteer and attend each and every year, especially all of our wonderful bands and performers.
