The Fare Thee Well Foundation, Inc. is proud to announce the line-up for their second annual The Day Celebration, a two-day music festival that will be held May 9-10, 2008 near the town of Buckhead, GA. Proceeds from the event will benefit four Georgia-based charities.
Performers include: Col. Bruce Hampton and the Quark Alliance, DubConscious, Blueground Undergrass, The Lee Boys, the Ralph Roddenberry Band, Donna Hopkins Band, Deep Blue Sun, The Squirrelheads, and more. Bands participating in the event are already planning special late night jams in addition to their regular sets.
The site of the festival will be the 80-acre Triple B Farm, in Buckhead, GA, located 70 miles east of Atlanta at Interstate 20 exit No. 121, just five miles east of Lake Oconee and easily accessible from Atlanta, Athens, Augusta and Macon. The foundation has made arrangements for a safe, family-friendly festival experience, complete with secure parking, a family camping area, Kids Zone, general and RV camping, 24 hour security, and a fenced infield with food and beverage vendors. The foundation will limit ticket sales to promote a relaxed, intimate setting for both the artists and audience, similar to the seminal events from the 60’s and 70’s.
Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the following charities: Brain Tumor Foundation for Children, Inc., an Atlanta-based organization funding medical research and support for families of children with brain tumors; Georgia Coalition to End Homelessness, Inc., which funds solutions to the issues surrounding homelessness in Georgia; The Georgia Wildlife Federation, an affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation, which funds efforts to protect Georgia’s wildlife, land, water and air resources; and the Humane Society of Morgan County, a volunteer driven organization dedicated to promoting the humane treatment of animals through adoption programs, reduced fee spay/neutering and community education.
Advance weekend passes are now on sale at a special discount rate of $68.00, which includes parking, camping (three nights to include Thursday, May 8th) and live music for the entire weekend. Tickets are available at www.thedaycelebration.com or by calling 877-772-5425.
