A3C has gone citywide this year, setting up in four different neighborhoods: Midtown/Downtown, Old Fourth Ward, Little Five Points, and East Atlanta. Since Atlanta can be a nightmare for even natives to navigate, here's some handy tips for making your way around the fest.


Skip the gridlock, the parking ticket paranoia, and a potential DUI by taking advantage of this year's free shuttle service. Festival passes come with free shuttles transportation, courtesy of A3C. The Yellow Route hits QUAD in Midtown, Downtown's SAE Institute, and Noni's Bar and Deli in Old Fourth Ward. From there, you can make the three-minute walk to O4W's Sound Table and Space 2 to catch the Gray Route, which travels from the Sound Table to Star Bar in Little Five Points, and then to the Earl in East Atlanta.

A small fleet of 18-25 passenger shuttle busses will be on the road, adorned with A3C banners. Festival volunteers will be on hand to help guide passengers. Buses will run continuously from Wed.-Thurs., Oct. 2-3, 5 p.m.-1 a.m.; Fri., Oct. 4, 3 p.m.-2 a.m.; Sat., Oct. 5, noon-2 a.m.; Sun., Oct. 6, noon-7 p.m.


Most of A3C's participating venues are situated close to train stations this year. The North Avenue station is a five-minute walk to QUAD and even closer to the Melia Hotel, where many of the panels are being held. Peachtree Center station is right next to the SAE Institute. King Memorial station is a half-mile from Noni's and the Sound Table. Little Five is walking distance from the Inman Park/Reynoldstown station, and you can always take the No. 107 or No. 34 MARTA bus south to get to EAV.
