AthFest Music & Arts Festival organizers have announced the headliners for this year's fest, which takes place June 24–26 in downtown Athens.
Local colorist and pattern designer Lou Kregel has been officially named as the theme artist of the 2016 AthFest Music & Arts Festival and AthHalf Half Marathon. Her artwork will be used on the event websites, merchandise, signage and as cover art of the 20th anniversary AthFest 2-CD set.
Back in October, AthFest Educates announced its plan to commission a large-scale public mural to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the AthFest Music and Arts Festival. Proposals were sought from three separate collaborators: a youth-serving organization interested in producing the mural as part of a multi-month arts program, a professional artist to create a design and oversee the youth as they participate in painting the mural, and a local business property owner willing to donate a highly visible outdoor wall as the site of the mural.
This afternoon, the non-profit announced that artist David Hale has been selected to partner with the Lyndon House Arts Center staff, who will facilitate the youth art program. Fashion boutique Philanthropy has offered their wall as the mural's site.

Friday on the main stage, The Whigs played the kind of enthusiastic rock and roll that forecasted the weekend ahead. With big-name pizzazz and homegrown familiarity, The Whigs set a backdrop for Friday night’s possibilities. Old friends hugged hello, light breezes blew through the crowd, and rainbow stickers celebrated momentous news. Plus, I’ve always been partial to “Kill Me Carolyne.” [Carolyn Crist]
