The Midwest RAD Fest is contemporary dance festival, which focuses on supporting its artists by providing free media promotion, networking opportunities, and provides complementary concert tickets to Chairs of University dance departments seeking potential residencies and Artistic Directors seeking commissioned works. Additionally, RAD Fest encourages the spirit of artistic collaboration and dialogue by providing its artists with discussion panels, topic-based dialogue sessions, master classes, and social events.

RAD Fest also organizes a Host an Artist program, which seeks to match potential hosts with artists to defray boarding costs.
