Freaknik will be back this summer – but in updated, family-friendly form
From the early 1980s to the late 1990s, the annual spring break-themed event was an infamous gathering in Atlanta, a massive party that swelled in size, and with it, drinking and partying. By 2010, then-Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed banned any Freaknik-related activities from being staged within the city, and a hallmark of Atlanta revelry disappeared.
But on June 22, the new Freaknik will take place at Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood, with Atlanta-based After 9 Partners producing the event. And they bringing it back with Style! The lineup includes Project Pat, Uncle Luke, Da Brat, Foxy Brown, Kilo Ali, Bun B. and Pastor Troy.
