The revived Music Midtown will feature two stages with continuous music – but never at the same time.
According to a schedule released Wednesday by Live Nation, which is promoting the Sept. 24 all-day event, the festival at The Meadow at Piedmont Park will launch with a 1 p.m. set by The Postelles on the secondary Great Southeastern Music Hall Stage. The first act to take the Electric Ballroom Stage will be The Constellations at 1:45 p.m.
The rest of the plan on the Great Southeastern Music Hall Stage:
2:45-3:30 p.m. – Mona
4:30-5:15 p.m. – Band of Skulls
6:15-7 p.m. – Young the Giant
8:15-9:15 p.m. – Cage the Elephant
And on the main Electric Ballroom Stage (following The Constellations):
3:30-4:30 p.m. – The Joy Formidable
5:15-6:15 p.m. – Manchester Orchestra
7-8:15 p.m. – The Black Keys
9:15-11 p.m. – Coldplay
**After reading some of these blog posts, it seems some people aren’t familiar with the intent of Music Midtown this year (i.e., starting small). Here’s our earlier story from when the fest was announced last month: http://www.accessatlanta.com/atlanta-music/music-midtown-to-return-1001901.html
