Team Clermont's 15th Anniversary Summer Showcase: Bear In Heaven, Olivia Tremor Control, & more!

We are excited to announce the return of the Team Clermont Summer Showcase and Prom, as we celebrate 15 years of excellence in radio promotion and PR! This will be the first summer festival since our massive 10th anniversary, and we’re putting together the biggest celebration to date.

Over the July 26-28 weekend two showcases will be held at the Georgia Theatre, headlined by critically acclaimed national act Bear In Heaven (Brooklyn, NY) and psych-pop pioneers The Olivia Tremor Control (Athens, GA.)

We’ll be closing out the weekend with our Prom, to be held at The Melting Point on Saturday night. A favorite among out-of-towners and locals alike, the Prom brings the attendees back to the times of cover bands, questionable outfits, photo booths and punch bowls, without all of the awkwardness of being a teenager.

In addition to these events, we will see the return of our highly competitive “K’s vs W’s Kickball Showdown,” and our first ever Record Fair with vinyl goodies at your perusal from our label partners, individual local vendors and community record store friends.

Three day passes ($25) as well as individual tickets ($10 advance, $12 at door) will be available soon!

Team Clermont has secured a block of rooms at a reduced rate at The Foundry, where The Melting Point is located, so you can sleep stumbling distance from Prom! Be sure to let them know you are with the Team Clermont party to receive the discounted rate when booking.

We’ll be announcing additional artists and few more surprises soon, so stay tuned! Be sure you are following our Twitter and a Facebook fan to follow all the action.
