Music And The Arts Hits South Georgia
Down in the southern tip of Georgia is an outstanding music and arts festival that won’t disturb any homicidal reptiles in nearby swamps. The Swamptown Getdown invites an extremely talented lineup of Americana, bluegrass, country and indie rock groups to crush it in the wetlands. There’s also an assortment of vendors displaying original artwork to contrast the swamp-green landscape scattered around the city of Waycross. My2two9 wants to send you there for FREE!
The Music: Our laid back event features a diverse blend of styles ranging from Americana, Country, Blues, and Bluegrass to Electronica, Indie, Jam Band, Reggae, and Soul.
The Arts: We also encourage our skilled regional artisans…painters, woodworkers, metalworkers and junk sculptors…to showcase your talents to a lively and informed audience.
Past headliners include Col. Bruce Hampton, Zach Deputy, Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, Rollin’ in the Hay, Georgia Soul Council, The Fritz, Chroma, Roosevelt Collier, Parker Urban Band, Back From The Brink, S.P.O.R.E., Ben Sparaco, and Bloodkin.
STGD is held on the beautiful Okefenokee Fairgrounds in Waycross, Georgia, a vast open expanse featuring on-site RV and primitive camping, shower and bathroom facilities, food and craft vendors, free WiFi and plenty of excellent local, regional, and national music.
