Besides the headliner of Kid Cudi, whose latest album drops tomorrow, I picked three artists that you do not want to miss out on. Two of them are from Atlanta, so what better way to support local music than hit up their sets at MMF this Saturday? – Lauren Stanaitis

Zeds Dead  

The duo from Toronto blew up in the electronic music scene fairly quick by being compared to the likes of Datsik, Doctor P and Flux Pavilion. Zeds Dead performed at Atlanta’s premiere music festival, Counterpoint, last September and continue to gain notoriety by being on well-known festival lineups.

Trey Phillips is producer and performer from Atlanta and goes by the stage name of Satoru.
