Big music festival headed to Albany fairgrounds

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Organizers are preparing for thousands of people to attend a big music festival at the Albany Exchange Club fairgrounds.

"Threeforty Creative Group" is preparing for their first Big Pine Musical Festival this weekend.

At least 40 regional and local rock, soul and country bands will be performing at the festival. Some of the bands include: John Anderson, Shovels and Rope and Chris Stapleton.

They say they have something that everybody will enjoy.

"We decided that we would try to do something that everybody can get into and bring as much talent as we could out here. So it's something that we do in other places but we're all from Albany and we'd figured we would put something together here hopefully get the support that we need to make it happen again and again," said Evan Barber, ThreeForty Creative Group.

Gates open at 5 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday. Tickets are 50 dollars for a weekend pass, but you can get them for 35 dollars by eating at Harvest Moon tonight or Locos tomorrow.
