The highly acclaimed Shaky Beats Music Festival is all set to return to the scenic Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia for a legendary weekend consisting of three epic days of positive spirits this May 5th through 7th. After an immensely successful launch in 2016, this festival is back and better than ever with debatably the most sought after electronic lineup of the festival season. Highlighted by some of the biggest names in the electronic scene, Shaky Beats has put together a lineup with the right music taste for everyone. With huge names like the Chainsmokers, Griz, Kaskade, Zeds Dead, Gramatik and more, this festival is jammed packed with talent from top to bottom. Complimented by the desirable Atlanta city buzz, Shaky Beats is quickly evolving into one of the most highly anticipated festivals around.
Along with the artists mentioned above, trap and dubstep enthusiasts can look forward to loads of head-banging with sets from Flosstradamus, RL Grime, Getter, Slushii, Snails, and Party Favor. With essentially every major dubstep/trap act on one bill you can be sure that each day of Shaky Beats is going to contain an unbelievable of energy from start to finish. Along with sets from up and coming acts such as Ganja White Night, LOUDPVCK, Grandtheft, Bad Royale, and Ekali, even the artists towards the bottom of this bill are continually selling out shows across the nation time and time again.
As for the melodic future bass vibe, Shaky Beats has got you covered with performances from Vanic, Alison Wonderland, Boombox Cartel, and Slander just to name a few. As if these names weren’t enough to make you buy a ticket right now, a very special live performance from Illenium compliments sets from similar talents including Said the Sky, ARMNHMR, Echos, Crywolf, and Young Bombs. This lineup is an Illenials dream come true as each and every day of this festival is sure to contain at least 3-4 acts you wouldn’t get to see on a regular basis.
Looking to shuffle to a house-oriented vibe? Don’t worry, sets from Galantis, Girl Talk, Bonobo, Claude Vonstroke, Lost Kings, Mija, and Ephwurd got you covered on everything from progressive, to melodic/trop, to deep house and even some jersey club. Along with sets from rising acts such as Rezz, Joyryde, and CID, Shaky Beats is surely going to leave you shaking those feet.
With so many headlining acts on one bill, you would think the price of this festival would cost over $100 a day. I mean, where else do you get an opportunity to see 5+ acts who all sold out their nationwide tours on the same day? Wait… 3 Day General Admission is only $165 before fees? This must be some sort of joke! Most other festivals are easily charging twice if not three times the price for this sort of talent. Sure, there may not be the much talked about camping experience that some festivals highlight, but let’s be honest, wouldn’t you much rather have a nice comfortable bed and a shower to go home to after a days worth of partying rather than a smelly tent? That’s what I thought. Do yourself a favor and save yourself the money on the most talked about festivals with 30,000+ people. Bigger isn’t always better and in the case of Shaky Beats, you just so happened to stumble across what will be talked about in years to come as one of the most well constructed festival lineups the scene has seen in quite some time.
