Athens Music Walk of Fame

215 N. Lumpkin St.
Athens, GA 30601

Athens, Georgia, has been known for its music scene for decades and has spanned generations and many genres of sound. The Athens Music Walk of Fame, launched in 2020, passes by some of Athens’ most famous music venues such as the Georgia Theatre and the 40 Watt Club. The first 10 inductees included some familiar names such as R.E.M., the B-52s and the Drive by Truckers, but also provide a deeper look into Athens’ music heritage with performers such as Hal Johnson, just waiting to be discovered. Athens’ musical legacy continues to be created, with live music in clubs almost every night of the week. Be sure to take in a performance while you are in Athens.
