In case you haven’t heard, Music Midtown is back:
The beloved Atlanta music festival, which ended in 2005 after a mostly successful and frequently buzzed-about 11-year run, will return Saturday, Sept. 24, at Piedmont Park.
Two stages will bookend the park during the noon to 11 p.m. event, featuring headliners Coldplay and The Black Keys and a slew of burgeoning alternative bands such as Cage the Elephant, Band of Skulls, The Joy Formidable and Atlanta-based Manchester Orchestra.
Tickets go on sale July 16 and will cost $55 for the all-day fest, which will also include an artists market, food vendors and two VIP areas.
You can find more information here, including mention of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed’s role in bringing back Music Midtown.
I know my wife is pretty excited about this, but I think out of that shortlist of music provided the only band I’d want to see is Manchester Orchestra.
