The incredible loss of the Ga Theatre has forced Athfest officials to come up with an alternate venue for the shows originally planned for the GAT. All the shows will be held at their originally scheduled times at the Morton Theatre.
If you’re like me and have no sense of direction, you might like a map. Here’s a great one.
ROCK DOCS: MUSIC DOCUMENTARIES
Need to beat the heat but don’t want to stop the music? No problem. Cine will be showing a number of musical type movies during Athfest. Included are the can’t miss “Athens, Ga. Inside Out,” the Elephant 6’s “Major Organ and the Adding Machine,” “Rip, A Remix Manifesto,” and a collection of rare performances and interviews circa 1984 from R.E.M. to be shown before “Inside Out.” Check this site for more details such as movie times and additional films.

Get to know the town better with an awesome tour led by the Side Effect’s Paul Butchart. More info here.
MERCH DONE EASY!
As mentioned in the comments of another post by our friend Jeff, Athensmusic.net will be out full-force to serve your Athens music needs. You can find their booth next to the main outdoor stage and it will have tons of stuff from local bands like shirts, cds, videos, etc. They do take credit cards. You can even buy stuff online pre-AthFest and pick it up at the booth if you want.
SHOW YOUR STUFF
Don’t forget. We’re looking for pictures, video, audio, writing, drawings, whatever from you and your experiences at Athfest. Please share. Cause sharing’s nice. Info here.
