Georgia Throwdown pushed to 2014

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

There won't be a Georgia Throwdown music festival *this* year in Albany.

Organizers are moving the second annual concert festival to the spring.  About 15,000 people attended last year's throwdown, which was held in October.

Justin Andrews, the Threeforty Creative Group President, says last year's event wasn't as financially successful as they hoped.

"Needless to say, we didn't have the attendees that we wanted to come and those mistakes we've made, we've learned to adjust moving forward.  We're hoping in the spring that we can get the attendance back from the community and support from people," said Andrews.

Andrews says many of the big artists they're trying to get for the Throwdown, have more availability in the spring.

"We're looking to bring some even larger talent here to Albany.  The planning is crucial to make those plans way in advance for many different reasons. With the spring season being a slower season for tours and for those bigger names, it looks like it will work better that way."

Andrews is asking community members to support upcoming events in Albany, which will create a positive attitude.

"There's a lot of music history here and it has just faded over the years and we're trying to bring that back and get people involved."
