FEST!: Athfest 2010 / 06.23 - 06.27 in ATHENS!

Hey y'all!! Athfest 2010 is almost here! In just a couple weeks, it'll be time to get yourself to downtown Athens, GA (if you aren't one of the lucky ones to already live there!) for what's sure to be another fun-filled weekend of entertainment and great music!

Now in it's 14th year, ATHFest has showcased the best in local, regional, and nationally recognized Athens-based talent. Called "...one of the country's great indie music festivals" on Everyday with Rachel Ray, it's one not to miss!

All performances on the outdoor stages are open to all ages and are FREE to the public. The evening's "club crawl" takes place on Friday and Saturday night. Wristbands are available for $15.00 in advance or for $20.00 at the festival. With the wristband, you get unlimited access to 16 music venues encompassing The 40 Watt Club, 283 Bar, Caledonia Lounge, Farm 255, Flicker Theatre, The Globe, Go Bar, Last Call, Little Kings Shuffle Club, The Melting Point, New Earth Music Hall, Rye Bar, and Tasty World. Also taking part are Nuci's Space and Cine (all ages venues).

However, with over 200 bands that are scheduled to perform, there's bound to be music you already love, and maybe some new ones you'll discover! For a complete lineup, click HERE.

I'm excited about attending for my third year in a row! Every year I've discovered new favorites in various genres, and can't wait to share them with you in future posts.

So, don't miss an awesome celebration of music, arts, film, and all things creative at this year's ATHFest. Really...it's too good to miss and you won't regret it.
