Bragg Jam 2013 – July 27th – Macon, Georgia
Bragg Jam returns to Macon, Georgia on July 27th for what will be the largest festival yet. The festival originated in 1999 as an impromptu jam-session in memory of recently deceased brothers Brax & Tate Bragg and has since grown into the largest music festival in Middle Georgia.
While arts and kids activities make up most of the morning and early afternoon, the true excitement begins around 5:00pm when fifteen venues around the city open their doors for fans from across the Southeast to spend the evening with fifty-six acts of all varieties.
The festival is pleased to announced a number of new additions that should make this year’s Concert Crawl the highest quality event to date. For ticketing, Bragg Jam attendees can now purchase their festival tickets online and those that plan on purchasing a ticket the day of the event will be able to do so from a large centralized ticketing tent located directly on Cherry St – the hub of the Concert Crawl.
The festival also has announced that there are plans to have Cherry St between Second St and MLK Jr. BLVD closed down for foot traffic only. Festival organizers foresee the street closure to allow for larger audiences to attend the event, while making it safer and also cutting down on the growing problem of trash.
Co-headlining acts for Bragg Jam 2013 include alt-country sensations THE DIRTY GUV’NAHS, rising indie act (and TBI alums) THE FRONT BOTTOMS, Athens’ own DEAD CONFEDERATE, and DJ LETHAL. The Concert Crawl also featured performances from Royal Thunder, The Whiskey Gentry, King Lincoln, Death on Two Wheels, A Thousand Horses, Stokeswood, Greenhouse Lounge, Dank Sinatra, and many more regional favorites.
The staff here at TheBlueIndian.com have always been big supporters of the festival and look forward to the audience it brings to Macon, our hometown. As a short preview to the festival, here are five bands from the lineup that we hope you’ll take the time to see.
Happy Bragg Jam!
