Atlanta Jewish Music Festival March 12-23
AJMF is proud to announce the lineup for its 6th Annual Atlanta Jewish Music Festival (AJMF6)! AJMF6 will take place around the Greater Atlanta Area from March 12-23 and will feature local, regional, national and international Jewish musicians. This signature, multi-day Spring Festival is the only annual celebration of Jewish music in the South.
“AJMF6 is going to be our biggest and best yet,” Founder and Director Russell Gottschalk said. “I’m most excited about the spotlight we’ve given Israeli performers at our Main Event, offering Atlantans and visitors from around the South a chance to connect to Israel here at home. But we also continue to support local Jewish musicians and over half of our featured performers live in the Greater Atlanta area. From our smallest stage on Opening Night to the huge crowd at the ACFB Hunger Walk/Run, from our local talents to our international rock stars, there is something for everyone at our signature Spring Festival.”
