SAVANNAH — The seventh annual A-Town Get Down will take place from noon to midnight Saturday at a new location on Indian Street.
The area, defined by Indian Street (between Fahm Street and the Talmadge Bridge) is well known as both a creative hub and emerging business community.
The family-friendly event is free from noon to 5pm, and ticketed after that.
This year’s festival will feature more than 25 bands and visual artists, each representing diverse music genres and artistic styles. Performers include Cracker, Bobby Rush, Col. Bruce Hampton, Snarky Puppy Horns, Low Country Voices, Old Salt Union, Walter Parks, Savannah Children’s Choir, AJ Ghent, Marques and The Marvelous Miracles, Waits and Co., Complicated Animals, Annalise Curtin, The Billy Jonas Band (Especially Family Oriented), and the live art of Jose Ray, Will Penny, SCAD ceramics, digital art, Loop It Up Savannah and much more.
Thanks to the festival’s new location, guests can expect larger stages and more music and art installations than before. A-Town is also partnering with Loop It Up Savannah again this year to connect students from Title I school districts, providing free access to interactive art and music projects.
The festival was created in honor of art student and musician, Alex "A-Town" Townsend, who died in 2010. The festival’s mission is to increase access to music and art for area residents.
Night tickets cost $35 with a $10 discount for students and military with valid IDs. A $95 VIP ticket includes Friday night event with appearances, meet and greet with performers, complimentary VIP tent at festival, VIP seating and swag bag.
