Freak World 2020 aka Freaknik has a new home. The Atlanta Journal -Constitution reported the music festival was looking for a new venue after plans for the original location of the Cascade Driving Range fell through because of an invalid contract.
As stated on their website, “Thank you to everyone who UNITED in helping us find a new home! Our goal was to stay in a community that supports Black Businesses and we are proud to announce Morris Brown College as our new home! Special Thanks to Dr. Kevin James President of Morris Brown College and Eric Gordon for helping faciliate this deal! Please be sure to still support Cascade Driving Range as the owner Mr. Samuel Tompkins and his non-profit “Another Way Out” still needs help changing the lives of the kids in the Southwest Community and showing them Another Way Out of the hood!”
The date of the event is still set for June 19-21. According to Carlos Neal via the official website, the only changes that will accompany the new location are a slight increase in parking fees and ticket prices.
