The Experience of Freaknik years ago was a wildly popular unofficial “Black Spring Break” known as The biggest block party in ATL.
Initially launched in 1983, Historically Black College and University students traveled in large numbers to participate in Freaknik. At its peak, it attracted a quarter of a million attendees, but at that time, Mayor Kasim Reed Felt that it created too much drama in the city and shut it down. So two years ago, it returned as a family-friendly all-day festival and concert.
The nostalgia of Freaknik is what has kept the spirit of the celebration alive.
After9 Partners will be partnering up with the Georgia State Health Department to offer free Covid -19 testing and vaccination shots for the patrons of Freaknik.
The festival will open one hour early for everyone who has a negative Covid test, vaccine card, or whoever wants to be safe and party. The Festival Takes Place October 8th -10th at Morris Brown College.
Tickets are on sale now for $10 a day when purchasing a foreplay group package.
It doesn’t get any better than that! But act now before the prices go up.
