This year, new entertainment venues include the Lake House at WaterColor, Grayton Bar & Grill, and  Messina 's at Gulf Place .

"Musically, we like to expand in numbers and genres," said Carter, who is excited to present singer songwriters Richard Thompson, Loudon Wainwright III, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Mullins and Kristian Bush of Sugarland.

On Sunday at Gulf Place , 30ASWF will present what he describes as a 4th of July fireworks guitar virtuoso blues display in January when Cooper Carter & the Royal Senders, Glenn Philips Band, Tinsley Ellis and Robert Randolph play in succession.

Also scheduled are two VIP dinners with celebrity chefs from Miller Union and Watershed in Atlanta with special shows by Kristain Bush and Shawn Mullins on Saturday and Sunday.

Another expansion is the music and brunch offerings at Caliza, Bud & Alleys, Hibiscus, and Grayton Bar & Grill.

"You will see an increased presence of shuttle buses on 30A each night of the festival as well," said Carter.
