    Default Shaky Knees Festival - Atlanta, GA

    I know this will only be relevant to a handful of people here, but I was excited about this lineup posted today and am most likely going to attend.

    even though it's a bunch of leftovers from last year, I really like this lineup. I'd probably attend if I was in a better financial situation.

    it's a vast improvement from last year, which was only 2 days. they're certainly not ahead of the curve or bringing anything new to the table, but this is going to be only the 2nd one, and it's encouraging.

    here's last year:

    it's only $150/169 for tickets, so there's definitely some value here. what exactly is Atlantic Station?

    it's actually a different venue than they held it last year, and I'm not exactly sure. there's like a mall there or something, I'll be looking into it.

    the "additional headliner" will probably be QOTSA or Beck or Alabama Shakes or My Morning Jacket.

    not Outkast? I know they are playing Conterpoint, but I assumed that they were just waiting for Counterpoint to sell some tickets before announcing them.

    haha, rad. that's almost exactly what I posted when I shared the lineup poster on facebook.

    This appears to be the exclusive non-outkast festival this year.

    Its a large mixed use development with retail, apartments, and office buildings built on an old contanimated site. I haven't seen it in three years but I lived across the street from it for about five years when they were building it. There's some green space by the retail area where they could do a little fest. And the IKEA is there so you can grab some horse meatballs on your way in.

    The weather would be nice that time of year. Not a bad line up for something of that size.

    so, it's in a strip mall?

    oops, missed the apartments and office buildings part, but that still seems like a really odd location.

    The collection of artists/bands for this is amazing, and I'm debating going.

    It sounds odd, but if you know the area it makes sense. There's sizable green space in the middle of the complex sort of a Central Park-ish area where they can fit a couple stages. If you image search "Atlantic Station" you can sort of see it.

    This is only twenty minutes from me, so it's tempting to go. The lineup makes me a little nervous, though. Now that it's three days, I could see one of them being really bleak if the lineup falls a certain way.

    Knowing you're going makes me want to go even more. I'm gonna look into hotels and stuff like that. Any recommendations close to the venue? If I go to this I may fly out a couple days early to catch a Braves game(huge Atlanta Braves fan).

    No specific recommendations, but I suggest staying somewhere near the MARTA so you can get around. Midtown is a cool place to stay.

    Braves have a home stand the whole week leading up to this, and the CUBS are in town the weekend that this is going on.

    Thanks for the advice. Did you look up the Braves schedule? if you did, thanks for enabling my laziness haha. I'm getting excited about this. I was sure I was going to make it out to Austin Psych Fest, but this lineup is so good and I promised myself as a kid I'd go see the Braves play on their home field eventually.

    Man, this festival is built for me. I'd like to see basically everything in the first 12 lines. If I wasn't broke, I'd be buying plane tickets.

    I live in ATL.

    We bought the early birds for Shanky for $99 and that turned out to be a great decision.

    Will be interesting to have it at Atlantic Station. Last year it was a the Masquerade music park and it was super muddy. This one should be on concrete. There is a big area by Atlantic station where they have food festivals/ Cirque de Solei, the ATL Tennis Open, etc. I honestly just don't know if there's enough room though.

    As for MARTA. Don't do it. Marta sucks. Download an App called "Uber". You're welcome.

    FYI,

    we are getting a new stadium and moving to Cobb County in 2017. Only three more years in the Ted, so if you wanna see Turner, do it now, if you wanna wait for the new park, do it then.

    The sense of urgency is because I want to see the Braves play in Turner field. I may be sitting this one out as well because of Governor's Ball.

    Damn that's a nice looking lineup, and with the Replacements addition, it's tempting to dump this Coachella pass and go to Atlanta instead.

    I live 25 minutes away, Tom. Extra bedroom. Beer. Two cats. And the weather here in May won't be horrific yet. Do it.

    Day by day breakdown poster. Replacement are sub headliners below modest Mouse.

    Strikes me as a low billing for such an exclusive booking, unless it was booked after others were promised the top line.

    The Replacements aren't as big as Modest Mouse even with the so called exclusivity. This is my favorite lineup out of any American festival, and it's cheap.
