More Info

We’ve got TONS of programming this year, and some new venues, and we’re super excited about it! To keep things running smoothly, please keep the following things in mind:

- We cannot delay the start of any of our shows. No holding the house up in here (there are too many shows sharing each space, and delays would mess up the schedule for everyone)
- Some of our shows/venues cannot accommodate late seating
- Atlanta traffic and parking can be a big mess, and it ain’t getting fixed before our festival
- We do not offer refunds for any reason

Our advice: familiarize yourself with the venues and plan to get there a little early, ESPECIALLY for our shows in Ponce City Market. All of our venues have places nearby where you can grab a snack or a drink while you chill out before your show starts (heck – 7 Stages has a coffee shop/bar next to the lobby!)

Roll up early, call an Uber, take advantage of public transportation – do whatever you’ve gotta do to get to the festival on time. WE can’t wait to see you!
