The Art of Cool Festival was acquired by the DOME Group, and in 2018, the organization produced its largest festival ever in Durham. This festival occurred at the same time as the celebration of the organization’s fifth anniversary. The festival has headlined major artists including Maxwell, Erykah Badu, Nas, Sango, Damien Escobar, Rahsaan Patterson, and Durham’s own 9th Wonder. This festival was born and bred in Durham, and the organization works hard to ensure both new and returning attendees have a great time. We have properties that are within close proximity to this festival and other attractions in Durham.
