Alcohol will be sold at Wolf Creek’s Funk Fest this weekend after all

Raise a glass: alcohol will be available for sale at Funk Fest this weekend after all.

Earlier this month, Fulton County commissioners failed to approve an alcohol license for the festival at Wolf Creek Amphitheater.

At the time, Premier Events partner Rob Frazer said any delay wouldn’t give him enough time to get approval from the state.

But Frazer said Wednesday that alcohol would be sold, following commissioners’ ratification of a permit that had been approved by Fulton police.

Funk Fest will feature Erykah Badu, Ro James and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. It is the first at Wolf Creek since Live Nation took over the venue.

Other scheduled concerts include Southern Hip Hop Legends, Mary J. Blige and Patti LaBelle.

Live Nation took over the venue after an audit showed mismanagement at the county level.
