Our annual Fresh & Local Fest is returning to Atlanta on June 9th! For those that may be unfamiliar with the movement, Fresh & Local Fest is essentially a FAMILY FRIENDLY community event providing a safe space for creatives of all kinds to network, showcase their talents, and be amongst like minded individuals in an ego free zone. Last year we had an incredible lineup of national touring artists that included RCA Records newest signee Dear Silas (Jackson, MI), rapidly rising lyricist LG (New Orleans, LA), Sasha Renee (Louisville, KY), Ainjo (San Diego, CA), and some of our favorite local ATL artists such as James Lewis, Troop Brand, Aryee', and Meraki Anoir. It was also a pleasure to bring back the Controllerise family with DJ Redhanded, Nahncenz, and Funk.Shu.
For the past 5 years, we've held our annual events at Hammond Park, but for 2019 we're taking the event to the OYL Creative Compound in Scottdale, GA. This will allow the event to remain open to the public, just on private property where we can fully regulate our own activity from top to bottom. It will also allow us to start the festivities a little earlier and run the show later into the evening!
As stated in the headline, we are currently accepting submissions from artists that are looking for a platform to perform and vendors that would like to set up a booth/table to promote their business, products, and/or services. Artists submissions are being accepted via Sonicbids (click to submit) and vendor applications are being accepted through our Google Form (click to apply). All submissions and vendor applications are completely free, however, our vending fee for this year will be $40. You will be able to set up your promotional space as early as 1pm and keep it up throughout the duration of the event. All profits are yours to keep. We sincerely look forward to going through everyone's work and are excited to see everyone on June 9th! Footage and photos from the 2018 Fresh & Local Fest are below.
