ATHFEST 2011 - 06.22.11 - 06.26.11

Just a couple weeks and before you know it, Athfest will be here! Now in it's 15th year, this annual music and arts festival will be held in downtown Athens, GA, June 22nd through June 26th, 2011.

This year’s headlining artists on the three outdoor stages include: FUTUREBIRDS, CENTRO-MATIC, GUADALCANAL DIARY, CHICKASAW MUDD PUPPIES, KEVN KINNEY BAND, and JASON ISBELL & THE 400 UNIT. Other performers include: Nappy Roots, Bruce Hampton and The Pharaoh Gummitt, Jim White, Don Chambers, Bloodkin, Thomas Hardy (of Dead Confederate), Easter Island, Oryx and Crake, Lera Lynn, Woodfangs, Klezmer Local 42, The Charlie Garrett Band, The Welfare Liners, Dodd Ferrelle, Monahan, The Knockouts, The Whiskey Gentry, Free Mountain, The John King Band, Rachel Farley Band, Lingo, Grogus, Dank Sinatra, Dr. Arvin Scott, and Rick Fowler Blues Band. All performances on the outdoor stages are open to all ages and are FREE of charge to the public.

I'm super excited to see that NAPPY ROOTS will be back again. One of my favorites, I discovered their music at Athfest 2009. There are a lot of favorites playing this year, as well as many more I can't wait to discover. I'm also excited that FUTUREBIRDS will be on the main stage, as I've been wanting to see them LIVE, since coming across their music not too long ago.

One of the things I love about Athens is the abundance of venues that bands perform in. It is my goal to one day have seen a show at each location. Maybe with this year's “club crawl” I just might! This takes place on the Friday and Saturday nights of the festival and includes: Little King’s, Flicker Theatre, CinĂ©, Caledonia Lounge, Bad Manor, Farm 255, The Globe, as well as my favorites: the legendary 40 Watt Club, The Melting Point, New Earth Music Hall, Rye Bar, and The Go Bar.

Bands and artists of all genres will perform, including: Reptar, Washed Out, Modern Skirts, Five-Eight, Kuroma, The Jompson Brothers, The Corduroy Road, Jazzchronic, and more. And I definitely recommend checking out Cinemechanica, The Orkids, and Ken Will Morton!!! They are so awesome.

You can get wristbands for $15.00 in advance or $20.00 at the festival. Venue age and capacity restrictions will apply and select shows will require the Athfest wristband for entry. More details can be found at www.athfest.com.



Athfest is more than just incredible live music! This festival also features KIDSFest, a juried artisan market, film events, a comedy showcase, Flagpole Music Awards, Wired Dance Festival and so much more! The experiences I've had every year I've gone have always been amazing! I never leave without discovering new bands, enjoying favorites, and getting inspired by the creative arts! And one more thing I love, is that proceeds go back to the community through support of music and arts education programs in local schools. How cool is that?!

So...I'll see ya there then?



Don't worry... we are still alive! I promise! We're hard at work on transitioning to a new website. We'll do our best to keep to post stuff there, but for now, FB will be the main source of up-to-date things to check out in music! Thanks for your support and sticking around! ♥

We've got lots of exclusives to share...we're just working on a new presentation of all of it.

ALSO - Becky, Brian, and Tyler are headed out to Bonnaroo next week. And I'm going to be Athfest bound later this month.

So, hang in there and stay tuned!!! :)
