AthFest Educates announced the lineup for the 2021 AthFest Music & Arts Festival.
After last year's forced cancellation, AthFest Educates is gearing up for the festival's 25th anniversary featuring over 55 local and regional bands, including Hotel Fiction, Cloudland and Neighbor Lady. https://www.athfest.com/outdoor-schedule
AthFest Music Chair Troy Aubrey said they will have slightly shorter sets this year to "feature as many Athens artists as possible," according to the Red & Black. https://www.redandblack.com/culture/athfest-announces-september-2021-lineup/article_3e96adc4-e5d6-11eb-acda-93559107d612.html
This year's festival will take place from September 24th through the 26th, and include an artist market, food and retail vendors, and activities for kids.
General admission is free for all ages, but the money collected from merchandise, VIP packages, and other sources of income will go towards AthFest Educates, a nonprofit supporting music education for students. http://athfesteducates.org/
