I love music and I love a good music festival. One thing I really appreciate about Atlanta is the vibrant and diverse music scene. Music Festival Season is still going strong (although colliding with football season) with One Music Fest and Music Midtown happening next month. Headliners for this year’s Music Midtown festival are Elton John, Drake, Van Halen and Sam Smith. My reaction when the lineup was revealed:
Now throw in Hozier, Lenny Kravitz, Elle King, Panic! at the Disco, Vance Joy, Billy Idol, X Ambassadors and Icona Pop! You can see the full lineup here.
My ticket for Music Midtown should be arriving any day now and I’ve been listening to the full catalog of many of the artists in preparation. No one wants to be the girl who only knows the word to the current radio single, right?! So I’ve put together a Music Midtown playlist that includes some hidden album gems and some well-known songs you may not realize you know. Wait what? For example, I mentioned Hall and Oates to Ace and she said she didn’t know who they were. It’s okay, if you don’t either, but I think you’ve heard them before. If you have seen 500 Days of Summer (hi, JGL) you’ve heard them before (this is just one of many places this song has been featured).
Aha, you say. So hopefully you can jam out to this playlist and discover some new or old songs to add your favorites.
