Kuroma, T. Hardy Morris, We Love Tractor, More Announced for AthFest


AthFest has announced a few more outdoor performers for this year’s festival, which takes place June 26–28. 

In addition to headliners New Madrid, of Montreal, The Whigs and The Baseball Project, you can catch sets from Kuroma (led by MGMT associate Hank Sullivant), Stokeswood, T. Hardy Morris and the Hardknocks and We Love Tractor, a reincarnated version of the classic Athens pop group featuring Armistead Wellford, Mark Cline, Jay Gonzalez, Bryan Poole, Joe Rowe and Bill Berry.

Some of the fest’s Club Crawl performers have also been announced. David Lowery’s country-tinged alt-rock project Cracker will headline the 40 Watt Club Friday alongside The Whiskey Gentry. That same night, Roadkill Ghost Choir and Dead Confederate will play the Georgia Theatre; the Theatre will feature folk-rockers Family and Friends on Saturday.

Many performers are yet to be announced. Check the AthFest site for wristband info and more.
