New Festival Alert! Shaky Knees Festival Featuring The Lumineers and Band of Horses

Shaky Knees Poster 2013Atlanta is adding the Shaky Knees Music Festival to the spring calendar this May 4-5, 2013. Rocking the Historic Fourth Ward Park and the Masquerade Music Park will be The Lumineers, Band of Horses, Jim James, The Joy Formidable and more (see below). It’s being curated by local music lover and producer Tim Sweetwood who says this about Shaky Knees:

“I’m not trying to appeal to every music fan or break into territory that has already been well covered by other festivals. I’d love for people to be able to find enough of a connection in the lineup to be familiar with several of the artists. But I wanted to offer enough of a range musically that they could get turned on to an artist they might never have heard of but end up loving.”

That’s exactly how we feel about music festival lineups. Check out the debut event for $99. Passes go on sale February 7, 2013.
