From the Facebook event:

The A-Town Get Down is a public music and arts festival organized in memory of Alex Townsend, a SCAD student, musician and artist whose life was tragically cut short in an automobile accident on Valentine’s Day in 2010. Alex known as “A-Town” selflessly encouraged the talents of others while continuing to find his own.

Tickets are available for purchase at Ticket prices are $15 in advance and $20 at the door for the general public; $10 in advance and $15 at the door for students and military; $60 for V.I.P. passes. Children ages 12 and under are free. The public is urged to buy tickets in advance as it is expected the festival will sell out.

Proceeds benefit the educational and artistic work of the Alex Townsend Memorial Foundation.
