Shaky Knees Music Festival
Shaky Knees is one of those festivals with such a good vibe that you buy a ticket without checking which acts are playing. It’s a well-established get together of chilled country music, alternative rock, indie rock, and indie-folk fans hell-bent on having a laid-back time.
There’s an older crowd in attendance so there’s less teenage drama and some people have attended every event since this three-day festival started up in 2013.
Atlanta’s the place to be if you want to discover why everybody’s shakin’ their knees.
Imagine Music Festival
Music Midtown’s considered Atlanta’s premier music event, proudly hosted in Piedmont Park every September.
It’s another jack-of-all-trades festival featuring acts from hip hop, rock and roll, pop, and electronic genres which helps thin the crowds a little over this two-day event. There are also plenty of food options to choose from so, you don’t have to queue long for a bite.
The lively, upbeat vibe inside the venue makes up for the stress of fighting through the festival traffic to get there.
While you’re on the best-behavior bandwagon, why not add something different to your bucket list of festivals?
The Elevate festival, hosted by the Scottsdale Highlands Church, focusses on the Christian genre of music and big names like Chris Tomlin and Vertical Worship are regular attendees.
As expected, the event has an upbeat, feel-good vibe and is well attended every year.
Tens of thousands of music lovers flock to Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta every April for this multi-genre event.
It does rain in Atlanta at this time of year but that rarely puts a damper on the all-round good vibes. Be sure to prepare for muddy conditions when you’re planning your festival gear though.
Sweetwater 420’s presented by SweetWater Brewing Company, so the ales flow fast and freely too.
Tunes From the Tombs
No, this music festival doesn’t occur over Halloween – although it should!
Tunes from the Tombs is on the go in the historic Oakland Cemetery in June every year.
What’s more, there’s nothing sinister or scary about the gentle village-festival vibe at this multi-genre one-day event in Atlanta.
Tunes From the Tombs is a showcase of local talent both on stage and off, with numerous platforms and plenty of food trucks and stalls for both retail and refreshment therapy.
