Hijacking Music festival 2011

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Hijacking Music Festival 2011
w/ A: The Color, BOSCO, Cloudeater, Clan Destined, ODIST, Jack of Hearts, TRICIL more…
Saturday, November 12
The Goat Farm – 1200 Foster Street in Atlanta 30316
Doors at 3pm / Admission $10-15 / Purchase Tickets

The Hijacking Music Festival is back for it’s second go-around and this year they’ll be spreading the “glow” of their local music love at the stupendously awesome Goat Farm. Probably my favorite thing about this particular local fest is its commitment to diversity with a lineup that runs the gamut from rock to hip hop to chillwave to punk to pop to experimental electronic music. I’m sure I’ve left some genres out, but you get the point. In addition to an array of some of the city’s finest musical talent — including can’t-miss sets from the likes of A: The Color, BOSCO, Clan Destined, Cloudeater, ODIST and TRICIL — the all-day event will also put a spotlight on the local visual arts with several artist displays to visit as you soak in a nonstop barrage of live music. Festival passes are a measly $10 if you purchase them in advance, or if you’re feeling rich you can cough up $15 at the door.

For a complete list of performers, directions to the Goat Farm or to download a free festival sampler, visit the official Hijacking Music Festival website.
