Coachella may be cancelled, but Atlanta’s FreakNik Fest is still on, despite the coronavirus pandemic.
via Page Six:
The second annual music festival is set to take place at Morris Brown College in Atlanta from Sept. 18-20 with a lineup that includes Jermaine Dupri, Too Short, Juvenile, 2 Live Crew, Paul Wall and Da Brat. FreakNik Fest will be Atlanta’s first major concert since the city reopened at the end of April.
Due to the pandemic, the After 9 Partners-produced event is reducing its capacity to 66 percent to maximize social distancing, we’re told.
The event is also working with local officials to implement safety protocols, including mandatory masks, temperature checks, sanitation stations and cashless payments.
We don’t think this is the best idea, but September is a long way away. Anything — literally anything — can happen between now and then.
