Wildwood Revival brings intimate festival to GA historic farm 7/19 ft. The Whigs, Deslondes, JP Harris, Whiskey Gentry & more.

Wildwood Revival announces intimate inaugural festival on historic Georgia farm July 19 
Enjoy a farm-to-table dinner, airstream or tipi camping, eclectic market, and barn performances from The Whigs, The Deslondes, JP Harris & The Tough Choices, and more.

Wildwood Revival is pleased to announce its inaugural music festival just on the outskirts of Athens to be held on July 19 featuring  The Whigs (Athens own), The Whiskey Gentry, JP Harris & The Tough Choices, Rolling Nowhere, The Deslondes and Banditos. Just 15 minutes from downtown Athens, this Americana-style festival will be held at an idyllic 35 acre venue called Cloverleaf Farm.

Wildwood Revival is a truly unique, one-day festival celebrating music and southern culture where guests can get off the grid. This event combines the camaraderie of a supper club, the soul of a juke joint, and the wild spirit of a honky tonk. It's a cultural revival; what's old is new again. The performances will take place under an open-air, fully renovated tin roof barn; a night of amazing music in an intimate setting. 

Guests will enjoy a hearty, farm-to-table supper with local, seasonal food to be perfectly paired with the first sip of cold Georgia brew provided by Terrapin Beer Co. and gourmet popsicles by King of Pops. After a night of merrymaking, watch the sun rise over the pasture with a cup of 1000 Faces coffee in hand.

Wildwood's artist market will feature vintage clothing and rustic, antique goods brought to you by one of our region's favorite pickers, Atlanta Vintage Clothing. If you feel like lounging in the shade, grab a handmade outdoor Waller Hammock. Guests will also have the opportunity to get an 1800's era tintype portrait by Kendra Elise using an individually hand-crafted technique - one of the oldest ways to create a photograph.

With pasture and wooded camping by tipi, tent or vintage Airstream, guests from both Athens and beyond are encouraged to stay the evening under a canopy of stars and bring guitars etc. for post-show, late-night pickin' around a bonfire. 
In a way, Wildwood Revival is a festival for people who don’t like festivals. Attendees can come without fearing greasy carnival food and expensive bottled water, long lines, port-o-potties, and being sandwiched between a sea of wasted youngsters. It’s a boutique festival offering delicious food, free filtered water, and clean outdoor restroom facilities. It’s an intimate environment to see a favorite band, all set against a serene, country backdrop.  

Wildwood Revival will continue as an event hosted two to three times a year with growth into a three day event. Its focus will always be to provide guests with a unique festival experience by
  • Promoting an environmentally friendly, plastic-free event – no single use bottles or plates
  • Providing free drinking water – no $5 bottled waters typically associated with festivals 
  • Offering reasonably priced food and beverages, similar to local restaurants and bars
  • Limiting number of tickets available in order to provide an ideal, intimate environment
Tickets may be purchased at for $38. Only 400 tickets are available.
