You can’t call yourself a music enthusiast if you aren’t going to the Shaky Beats Festival. This Atlanta, Georgia event brings together over 40 of the cream of the crop acts to play across several stages wrapped in one dazzling music festival. It’ll give you a good dose of local talent, too – you might just discover your new favorite indie act! Be prepared to be blown away by mind-melting audio visuals from various artists – many of them are going to pull off a show that’s going to feel more like an electrifying out of this world experience instead of just your average concert. The spacious open-air venue provides you with lots of room to dance it out from day to night. Catch your breath on the greens near the venue, and get some shade beneath the trees before you head back for several more hours of dancing. Take some crazy pics at the photo booths, and savor some of A-Town’s finest chow at the many stalls. The festival grounds will be peppered with several bars serving up everything from craft beers to premium liquors, cocktails, and so much more.
If you’re going to attend just one festival this year, it should be Shaky Beats: you’ll get a good sampling of today’s best music in an energizing atmosphere where the pulsating energy is almost tangible.
Previous editions have featured Zedd, Kygo, Marshmello, Odesza, The Chainsmokers, Little Dragon, Bonobo, and Major Lazer. The 2019 lineup is as exciting as it can get: Beck, Tame Impala, Cage the Elephant, Tears For Fears, Interpol, Dashboard Confessional, and Father John Misty are just some of the incredible acts that are going to play for you. This is an event you won’t want to get FOMO for!

Culture vultures, foodies, party people: everyone will find something to love about Hotlanta. Nurse your Shaky Beats hangover at the famous Krog Street Market, the most talked about food market in Atlanta built in what was once a cast-iron stove factory.
The market is literally filled with Atlanta’s best food under one roof: bacon cheeseburgers, craft beer, and smoothies if you feel like detoxing. Catch a flick at the iconic Starlight Drive-In Theatre. Have a nightcap (or 5) at one of the many watering holes downtown.
