View Full Version : Music Festival in Athens Seeks Volunteers - Daedelus, Liz Janes, Circulatory, 15 more

10-21-2007, 10:59 AM

This is the Next to Last Festival! We are a non-profit music and arts festival in Athens, Ga showcasing over 15 unique and exciting musical acts from all over the country, progressive speakers, performance art, a vendors market, a farmer's market, and a community info center for creatures of all ages. With so many blockbuster festivals gouging their attendees out of absolutely obscene sums of money, only to confine them in uncomfortable, tight spaces and skimp on basic necessities, our goal is to do the right thing: That is, to create a reasonably priced music festival that provides an overwhelmingly positive, comfortable and fun festival experience for attendees of all kinds in the beautiful Georgia outdoors. Proceeds from this year's event will be going to Common Ground Athens, Common Ground New Orleans, and the fantastic artists who have volunteered their time and efforts to make this happen. You can find out more about our local Common Ground at www.CommonGroundAthens.org.

The fest will go down Saturday and Sunday December 8th and 9th!

Our confirmed lineup so far is:
* Daedelus (Plug Research, Mush, Ninjatune, Dublab.com)
* Liz Janes (Asthmatic Kitty)
* Circulatory System (Cloud Recordings)
* Chris Schlarb (Asthmatic Kitty)
* Dark Meat (Orange Twin)
* Diane Cluck (Antifolk, et al)
* Hope for Agoldensummer
* Daniel Clay
* Spenking
* Geoff Reacher
* The Hot New Mexicans
* Deaf Judges
* Ben & Bear w/ DJ Killacut
* Grampall Jookabox
* Long Legged Woman

With over 10 more bands and another headliner still to be announced!

We need your help! Yes, you, the one with the hands. In exchange for a short shift, volunteers will receive a free pass to one of the days with the option to upgrade to a 2-day pass for $5 and they'll be able to park for free on the day of their shift.
