Meltasia Music Festival heading to Georgia

John Ambrosio

Feeling all fest’d out? Still tired from last week’s Impose showcase? Get bummed out by one of the hundreds of other summer music festivals this year? Well too bad, because the Meltasia Music Festival is coming to Georgia this Sept 5-7, and its lineup is stacked. Among the bands slated to play the three-day extravaganza are Georgia’s own Black Lips, legendary space-rock group Hawkwind, prog-rockers Danava, and more than 70 other acts.

The Meltasia Music Festival started as a birthday party for Stalkers frontman Andy Animal in 2009, and has now morphed into its current forma veritable psych and garage rock happening. This year, the festival is being held on Cherokee Farms, a 270-acre tract of land about 90 minutes north of Atlanta. In addition to the crazy long list of bands, festival-goers will be able to cool off in the lake located on the property, take in some curated art installations and, as the poster promises, use “bathrooms” and generally have “fun.” All in all, it’s probably the least dangerous way to have a good time while camping in the backwoods of Georgia.

A three-day pass to Meltasia is available now through ticketfly for $125. A Saturday and Sunday pass is also available $100, and a solo pass for Sunday is available $80. You can purchase tickets here.
