And the music scene—which covers all varieties of music genres from pop, alternative rock, new wave, and everything in between—is a must-see when you visit our historic city. Famous bands like the B-52’s, R.E.M, and Widespread Panic all got their start performing in the Classic City, making it an attractive location for both established and up-and-coming artists. Visit world famous venues such as the 40 Watt Club, Georgia Theater, and the historic Morton Theater to enjoy music in a way you just can’t find anywhere else. The best part? There’s always someone performing! No matter when you visit Athens, you’ll be able to experience it the way you’re meant to: with a drink and some great live music.
