An alternative rock band out of Adelaide, South Australia, Atlas Genius will headline the annual Brite Winter Festival that takes place on Saturday, Feb . 24, on the West Bank of the Flats.

Other notable acts include local bands such as Seafair, Obnox, Herzog, Freshproduce and Morning[a]BLKstar.

More than 40 bands will perform on six indoor and outdoor stages, and assorted vendors will be on hand as well.

The annual winter music and arts festival began a few years back in the Flats near what is now Merwin’s Wharf.

Organizers had to learn a few hard lessons — the event took place in the midst of a blizzard in year one — before they were able to turn into the well-oiled machine it has become.

For the next four years, Brite Winter took place in Ohio City before moving to its current location in 2016.
