SweetWater 420 Fest began as a small outdoor park gathering in Oakhurst. Though the festival has grown dramatically since 2005, the core foundation of quality music, beer and cheer remain the same. This year’s SweetWater 420 Fest in Centennial Olympic Park included performers Widespread Panic, Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and many more.
Photographer Gordon Hight braved the pits over the weekend to capture a few highlighting moments. ARTS ATL also caught up with SweetWater Brewing Co. cofounder Freddy Bensch prior to the festival here.
