Festival Preview: Atlanta’s Music Midtown

After taking a six year hiatus, Atlanta’s popular music festival returned last year with a bang. The event was scaled back to a single day but the line-up was packed. It featured both big name headliners like Coldplay and Cage the Elephant as well as up-and-coming acts like Young the Giant and The Joy Formidable.

This year, Music Midtown is back and has grown a little following last year’s success. Now a two-day event featuring 15 bands, you’ve got no reason to miss it when it hits Atlanta on September 21st and 22nd.

Below is a list of this year’s line-up followed by some details on ticketing options. Be sure to revisit our coverage of Midtown Music 2011 to see photos of the bands and get an idea of the kind of treat you’re in for!
