There’s even KidsFest, a family and kids oriented version of the festival with activities and performances catered specifically to the little ones.
The entire festival will be held in downtown Athens from June 22-26, 2011, turning it into a melting pot of fans and artists alike. Kicking off the festival are the local filmmaker showcases at Cine’organized by Film: Athens and the Flagpole Magazine Athens Music Awards at the historic Morton Theater.
