NorthWest Georgia Summer Jam kicks off May 30
The sudden increase in demand for metallic temporary tattoos points to one thing: Music festival season is here.
While simultaneously enjoying live music and soaking up some vitamin D sounds appealing, festival season can be a drag if you aren’t into paying $300 to strategically plan your porta potty breaks around peak vomiting hours. That is—until NorthWest Georgia Music Jam entered the scene.
This classic, down-home jam will feature nationally recognized Southern rockers Confederate Railroad. They will be joined by Southlander (with former Alabama drummer Mark Herndon) and radio legend Bobby Bones.
The festival commences Saturday, May 30 at Sunrise Farms in Trenton, GA. It involves no communal camping, no overlapping lineups and no fighting thousands of people just to see the stage.
You may not see the Teletubbies costumes and horse heads that bigger festivals provide, but you will still have something to look at, including a classic car show. Twentieth-century Camaros make a lot more sense than grown men walking around in dinosaur suits, anyway.
If melodies of country music past and an overabundance of Cadillacs aren’t tempting enough, the price may be. Wristbands are $20 in advance and $30 at the gate, and while VIP status at most festivals will run you close to $2,000, NorthWest Georgia Music Jam will let you “meet, greet and eat” with the artists for $70.
