Shaky Knees Music Festival will descend upon Atlanta for its fifth anniversary this May 12th to May 14th. For the first time, the event will maintain the same venue as last year, so it looks like Centennial Olympic Park could become the fest’s permanent home. That means there’s a lot to celebrate at Shaky Knees 2017, and the festival organizers have put together a perfect lineup for just such a party.
LCD Soundsystem, The xx, and Phoenix will headline the three-day event, with The Shins, Cage the Elephant, Pixies, Portugal. The Man, Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker), X Ambassadors, and Third Eye Blind providing top-billed support. As always, there’s an incredibly stacked undercard, this time featuring the likes of Dr. Dog, Sylvan Esso, Wolf Parade, FIDLAR, Shovels and Rope, Warpaint, Car Seat Headrest, Hamilton Leithauser, Bleachers, Cloud Nothings, Highly Suspect, Pinegrove, Catfish and The Bottlemen, Modern Baseball, Whitney, PUP, and more.
On those names alone, Shaky Knees could go down as the best indie rock festival of the year, and there are plenty other bands we didn’t even mention! It’s going to be an event you won’t want to miss, so we’re giving away one (1) pair of GA passes to help one of our loyal readers live it up in the ATL.
