Music Midtown is held in the middle of September, typically on the third weekend of the month. As of now it remains a two day festival lasting from Saturday through Sunday.


Where is Music Midtown held?

Music Midtown takes place in Piedmont Park,which is just a few miles north of downtown Atlanta. It’s a great setting for a music festival.



When does Music Midtown release its lineup?

Some music festivals move their lineup announcement date around a bit. Music Midtown is not that type of festival. Over the years the festival has been incredibly consistent with the release of its lineup: late June. The table below shows the lineup announcement date going back to Music Midtown 2014.

What Type Of Music does Music Midtown feature?

You can see the lineup poster from Music Midtown 2017 as an example. Typically the festival features mostly rock, as well as a good amount of hip hop and EDM. The festival does tend a little more mainstream than a lot of festivals with bookings such as Bruno Mars as a headliner. It’s usually a pretty eclectic lineup with something for everyone.


How long does each artist play?

Most lower tiered bands will get 45 minutes to an hour to play. Headliners and acts higher up on the billing typically get 90 minutes.


What are the hours of Music Midtown?

Music Midtown opens at noon every day and will go until 11PM.

Music Midtown Map

How many stages does Music Midtown have?

You can see the official 2017 Music Midtown festival map above. There are four main stages with music, spread throughout Piedmont Park.


When does Music Midtown announce set times?

Typically this happens in either late August or early September. This gives you about 2 weeks or so to prepare and plan who you will want to see at the festival.


What’s the weather like for Music Midtown?

Miserably hot and humid, this is Atlanta after all. Typically weather will be in the upper 80s to low 90s and humid. It’s not unheard of for it to rain so we always suggest preparing for weather just in case.


What do people wear to Music Midtown?

Dress comfortably. My biggest tip is to wear comfortable shoes as the festival is a lot of walking and standing – walking between stages, walking from the MARTA station to the festival, standing at the shows, etc. Dress for function and not style. Also as I mentioned it’s really hot at Music Midtown; you will sweat. This isn’t Coachella, dress comfortably over stylish.


Questions About Tickets

Note: We have a full ticket guide that answers all of these and more questions on tickets.


When do tickets go on sale?

As is the case with most music festivals, Music Midtown tickets will go on sale a day or two after the lineup is announced. As we mentioned above, the lineup comes out in late June so you can look for Music Midtown tickets around then.


How much are Music Midtown passes?

Again like most music festivals there is an array of passes you can purchase for Music Midtown. Specifically there is general admission (GA), VIP and Super VIP. Here’s the prices for each:

  • 2-Day GA Presale - $135 + Fees
  • 2-Day Advanced: $135 + fees
