Music Midtown's Headlining Line Up: Eminem, Jack White, Lorde and Zac Brown

Music Midtown in Atlanta will feature Eminem, Jack White, Lorde, Lana Del Ray, iggy Azaela, and Run DMC. Other artists include Iggy Azalea, John Mayer, The Strypes and B.o.B. The festival will run September 19-20 at Piedmont Park.



WSB-TV, the local ABC affiliate, reports if you're planning on attending, you better have some serious bank this Saturday (June 28) when tickets go on sale. Prices range from $125 to $1,000 for the deluxe VIP package. There’s no single day passes this year.

If you've got some spare change in the couch cushions, $30,000 will get you a cabana. 

Co-founder of the original festival, Peter Conlon, brought music back to the city lost in constant radio station changes.

"Eminem, Zac Brown Band, Run-D.M.C. among 20 acts to play Music Midtown" notes Conlon's philosophy is pretty straightforward. "I don’t want someone who is on every festival bill in the country. We don’t want to be cookie-cutter." 

And why did he cut out the single-day tickets? “We just decided it as a convenience thing.” Considering the expected 30,000+ crowd, the idea makes sense if you’ve ever attempted to use MARTA during a busy weekend. “We didn’t sell a lot of singles, anyway.”



Music Midtown returned in September 2011 after the event hit a long hiatus in 2005. Decline in attendance and production cost shut the festival down but appeared in Midtown as a one-day, two-stage event. 

Now concert goers have three-stages and two days to enjoy the music, food, and crowd. 

The full playlist and breakdown will be released later this week.

Melissa Ruggieri mentions that there will be two headliners performing simultaneously both days, and the third stage will be on Oak Hill with video screens to let those in back see more. 

If you get hungry, local food trucks will be around for masses. Not to mention the VIPs will be dining on fare by well-known chefs.

Of course, Music Midtown has serious competition this year.

TomorrowWorld will be back at Chattahoochee Hills on Sept. 26-28. TomorrowWorld is a huge EDM festival from Belgium. You better be 21 and up and full access tickets start at $357.00



And Atlanta’s own OutKast will be performing the same weekend as TomorrowWorld in Centennial Park for three days. Explains the inclusion of Georgia’s own Zac Brown and Gregg Allman since Conlon couldn’t lock down Outkast after all. 

“In hindsight, it was just a miscommunication and a comedy of errors, because I would like to have them.” Of the miscommunication, he said, “it was never really communicated to us that they want to play initially” and “I kind of felt like they had already done Georgia.”

How does Conlon see the competition? 

“If this ticket doesn’t sell, we’re all in a lot of trouble because this is a great lineup.” Laid-back, he ends on a positive note. “I’m not concerned about it.”

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster this Saturday at 10 AM.
