After teasing that a new festival was on the horizon, Atlanta festival producer Rival Entertainment and Athens, Georgia rock juggernaut FUTUREBIRDS have announced full details on Highball – a festival experience at the historic Pullman Yards, October 21st and 22nd 2023. Curated by Futurebirds, the inaugural two-day festival experience will feature notable artist performances, locally renowned food purveyors, and a distinctive live experience alongside the railroad tracks of Pullman Yards.
Handpicked by the indie rock mainstays, the lineup will feature headliners BAND OF HORSES and THE HEAD AND THE HEART, preceded by daily sets by FUTUREBIRDS. Additional support will include performances by WEDNESDAY, a special reunion by THE WHIGS, SERATONES, S.G. GOODMAN, T. HARDY MORRIS and HOTEL FICTION. Highball represents a culmination of collaborative efforts two years in the making by Rival Entertainment and Futurebirds, which were drawn to the beauty of Pullman Yards’ historic setting.
It’s a wild wild dream to have the chance to help curate a festival bill, full of some of our favorite bands and best friends, in our home state, not far from where a handful of us grew up and experienced live music for the first time. It’s a full-circle experience, and we are extremely grateful for the opportunity. The lineup is insane; the venue is gorgeous. I can’t wait to see y’all out there in October.Carter King – Futurebirds’ guitarist and singer
Highball has partnered with Pabst Blue Ribbon, The Georgia Hemp Company, Código 1530 Tequila, and Bulleit Frontier Whiskey as the event’s presenting sponsors, which are activating along with other local vendors across the Pullman Yards ground.
We are thrilled to welcome Highball to Pullman Yards. We have anxiously anticipated this event and look forward to working with Rival Entertainment and Futurebirds on the first festival. Come experience two great days of live music on the Pullman Yards grounds.Maureen Meulen – Atomic Entertainment
