Shaky Knees Music festival

This May, Atlanta will be host to a brand new music festival. Dubbed  ‘Shaky Knees Music Festival’, the festivities will all be going down in  Masquerade Music Park and the Historic Fourth Ward Park this May 4th and 5th . It’s a two-day swing, and the  festival features 28 bands spanning over three outdoor stages. Word around the water cooler is that local food trucks, artisans and vendors will also be available.

The lineup for Shaky Knees includes everything from up-and-comers The Orwells to “Best New Artist” Grammy nominees The Lumineers, with an eclectic lineup that includes Band of Horses, Jim James, (here’s a shocker) Gary Clark Jr., Welsh rockers the Joy Formidable, Kurt Vile & the Violators and more. Curated by longtime Atlanta promoter Tim Sweetwood, the fest offers live music fans two days of music in an urban outdoor setting.

Two-day general admission tickets as well as VIP passes went on sale on yesterday at Ticketmaster. For additional info check out the festival’s official website by clicking here

Jay Porks here.. I used to be a contributor on here. I\'m a little more than that now. This used to be the place I\'d go spill my rants and raves about artists and music I love and loathe. I still do that. But now I host a weekly podcast to get things off my chest, and since I have you here I\'m gonna tell you about it: Used to talk about fun things like music and pop culture, but these days it\'s all flushing the fascist crime syndicate from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and taking back our country. A hostile foreign nation installed a corrupt racist rapist fake rich criminal to power and now he holds the nuclear codes. We have a lot of work to do to fix this nation and it starts with VOTING. Sometimes we go through the music headlines of the week along with other things I feel strongly about. Like ending Cannabis Prohibition, the sad state of affairs with the tri-state area sports teams, The struggles of an anti-social mess attempting to live in a social media world.
