C3’s Shaky festival circuit is back, and it’s looking like it’s going to be one hell of a good time.
After a successful inaugural year last year, the twin festivals are returning to Atlanta for year two.
Up first is Shaky Beats. Taking place the first weekend of May, electronic music rules the day at this festival. From Friday May 5th through Sunday May 7th, 2017, it’s a nonstop electronic treat, including acts like RL Grime, Kaskade, GRiZ, and more.
If you’re not partied out, the very next weekend is Shaky Knees. With a more alt rock focus, this festival will probably appeal to a different set of music fans. Of course, you can always sample both (just be careful about musical genre whiplash). The second weekend runs Friday May 12th through Sunday May 14th, 2017 and will include The xx, Phoenix, Portugal the Man, and more.
Between the two festivals, there’s something for every type of music fan. And on behalf of all non-Atlanta residents, we’re super jealous that you get both these festivals right in your backyard.
