Things to do in Athens This Summer

Summer Music in Athens

Athens again sounds like Athens, with music back in the air most nights of the week! 

  • AthFest is roaring back June 23-25. It's the very best time of the year to experience Athens' storied live music scene, and best of all, outdoor stages are free! There is also a strong lineup of bands playing in the clubs in the evening, so check out Club Crawl passes, too! AthFest is great for all ages, with plenty of KidsFest music and art activities as well as an Artist Market and food trucks.
  • There's no more beautiful a setting for outdoor live music than the Flower Garden at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, home to the Sunflower Music Series.
  • Head on up to the Georgia Theatre Rooftop for free shows all summer long.
  • Winterville gets in on the action with concerts on the lawn of the Front Porch Bookstore every Saturday in June, then picks back up in September and October.
  • Hotel Indigo brings live music to its awesome patio every Thursday.
  • Southern Brewing Company is hosting a summer full of live concerts in their big backyard.

And that's just for starters! Check out our full Live Music Calendar.
