Yep, today is the day we announce the lineup for this year’s Athens PopFest. We’ve been working since last September putting this together. The festival runs August 12-16, 2008 here in Athens, GA and will take place at Cine, Little Kings Shuffle Club, The Flicker Theater & Bar, The Caledonia Lounge and The 40 Watt Club.
Full festival passes are $60.00 (Cheap!) and are available by clicking here.
Specific dates and times will be announced at a later date but not very long from now. Individual day passes will go on sale at a later date, also. Over the past week we made special pre-sale passes available to past attendees at a discounted rate and almost a full third were snatched up. (Thanks!) A total of 84 bands will play this year.
For now, feast your eyes on this lineup….
