Well, it looks like festival season is in full swing and this year looks to be a doozy. With Riot Fest and FEST 16 already releasing part of their lineups earlier this month featuring bands such as Jawbreaker, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stoneage, Against Me!, Hot Water Music, and Smoking Popes, it may be an easy thing to overlook slightly smaller, local festivals.
However, it looks as if Athens’ own Popfest won’t be outdone so easily. Featuring Athens staples such as Elf Power and Pylon Reenactment Society along with major national acts like Apples In Stereo, Waxahatchee, Superchunk, and Kleenex Girl Wonder, Popfest is most definitely one of the biggest “bang for your buck” festivals around right now. Not to mention that Savannah’s very own COEDS will also be featured on the already stacked lineup as well. Check out the poster for the four day festival below and be sure to go ahead and start making those plans for August 9th – 12th.
