Organizers of The Big Bird Bash, an independent music festival, announced Friday that the event will be rechristened “The Macon Music Festival” in 2014. This year, the festival, which highlights regional musical acts, will feature seven bands, art vendors, food vendors, games and activities.

“We have known for some time that Macon really needs a music festival to support its extensive musical heritage and support the growing underground music scene,” says Kristen O’ Neal, event organizer.

The Drive-By Truckers will headline this year’s festival with Drivin’ N Cryin’, Moon Taxi, Modern Skirts, Back City Woods, Gringo Grande and the Dirty Sound Professors. A portion of the event proceeds will go to benefit the Cox Capitol Theatre, The Allman Brothers Museum at the Big House and Macon-Bibb Co. Parks and Recreation.
