Friday June 24 – Sunday June 26
The headliners this year are Family and Friends (Friday), Arrested Development (Saturday) and Kishi Bashi (Sunday).
AthFest is all about giving back to the community. It is made possible by the nonprofit organization AthFest Educates, which awards grants to Athens area educators to strengthen their music and art programs.
This year’s guitar auction will feature a Gretsch 6118 two-tone Green Anniversary electric guitar, signed by the members of Athens’ own Drive-By Truckers: Mike Cooley, Jay Gonzalez, Patterson Hood, Brad Morgan and Matt Patton. This guitar was donated to AthFest Educates by The Gretsch Foundation. Proceeds will fund AthFest Educates to provide grants that support music and art education programs in Athens.
AthFest wristbands are $30 each and can be purchased online or in person at the following Athens locations:
Low Yo Yo Stuff Records at 261 W. Washington St.
Athens Welcome Center at 280 E. Dougherty St.
Georgia Theatre at 215 N. Lumpkin St.
So come on out to Athens, GA on June 24th and stay with us awhile until the festival wraps up on June 26th. We are a friendly town and have plenty of lodgings available. For more information about AthFest, please visit www.athfest.com
