That my friend is the question of the decade in GA. As previously stated the law is about to change but for the time being I would be willing to say that a music festival is a public gathering. It is not the place where the event is but the event itself and I personally would say that is a public gathering there fore no carrying unless you fall under one of the exemptions listed in 16-11-130 ie. military or such. If you do fall under one of those listed then that is your ticket to carrying in GA.

I personally have carried a few places that are technically illegal per the law how ever I am exempt because I am military and the law says nothing about having to be in the line of duty and the AG agrees with me or me with him per his opinion. BUT when I must go to those places I CONCEAL and when I conceal not even my wife knows that I have it on me unless she asks.
