Wildwood Revival 2016-CloverLeaf Farm

A Bunch of Bands and a Bunch of Fun

Wildwood Revival is a boutique music festival that features many bands over a three day period (August 26th-28th). The festival showcases incredible music and they make every effort to create a full on cultural experience. Many of the unique offerings are an outdoor cinema, karaoke, camping, wiffle ball, dance party, farm to table food selections and a delicious gospel brunch.

With the tag line of “Get Out Of Town”, you can’t argue the intent for simplicity and a joyously relaxed atmosphere. Wildwood takes place on historic Cloverleaf Farm just outside of Athens, Georgia and despite its relative newness, it continues to grow in popularity.

The music acts are quite diverse and unique. The sounds range from country to Americana, to blues, and good ol’southern rock and roll. Honestly, there seems to be a genre to fit everyone’s taste. The website describes it perfectly, “This event combines the soul of a juke joint, the wild spirit of a honky tonk, and the camaraderie of a supper club.”

I was only there for Saturday, but next year I hope to attend the entire weekend!

In a desire to capture the unique venue and the raucous spirit, I took a heap of photos and am sharing some examples of the music…Hope it entices you to consider coming next year.

A new tune from Susto that hilariously explains what an insane good time it is to see them live!

Teepee camping is one of the options

What an incredible venue! It was fun to stretch my music listening ears and hear bands I don’t always take the time to find.

Well done, Wildwood Revival….I’m coming back next year!
