About Us

Flagpole.com is the online presence of Flagpole Magazine, since 1987 the locally owned, independent voice of Athens, Northeast Georgia’s vibrantly laid-back, architecturally interesting home of the renowned music scene and the University of Georgia. Flagpole—online and on paper—covers music, art, theater, movies, books, food, drink, politics, government, people, comics, advice to the lovelorn and a comprehensive calendar of what’s happening around town. You can pick up Flagpole’s free print edition weekly at over 300 locations in Athens, on the University of Georgia campus and in the surrounding area. Flagpole’s trenchant coverage of the local scene makes it a must-read for all who want to know what’s going on in Athens, and it is a common point of reference for townie kids and city fathers, UGA students and their professors, waitstaff and their customers, movers and shakers and the moved and shaken.
