Little JenThis event was the first of its kind to hit Atlanta, integrating a 24-hour electronic music and arts festival. Located about 8 miles south of the city, on what looked to be an old abandoned fairground and ballpark area, this event had just about everything you could imagine. The laser and light show was so massive, it required approval from the FAA! No joke! Great talent constantly wailing on the decks at an event highlighted by live performances by BT, Uberzone, Spacegirl, Trip Theory and others from Zen Elements, and many other great electronic producers.

BTThe laser and light show on the main stage was nothing short of spectacular. But, wait, besides all the things you would expect at one of these events, how about a booth dedicated to registering voters, arts and crafts, various vendors selling all styles of music and other party accessories, vendors selling hot dogs and refreshments, and a friendly security staff, and a party that pretty much went off without a hitch. Not to mention, this was the first annual event, and first ever of its kind in Atlanta. The summer air was cool, and I would estimate about 5 to 6 thousand people came and had a great time under the stars enjoying the performances. The dust was a little taxing, but I think the first time people really thought about it was the next day when they were trying to shower off.

AK1200The west coast sees quite a few outdoor parties each year, and now I can see why. Big shouts go out to all the local, regional, national, and international talent that rocked Future Fest this year. And, thanks goes out to Bassmint Entertainment for bringing a new tradition to Atlanta. I hope to see more events co-produced by mother nature here in Atlanta next year.
