*** UPDATE: Just when we thought that Shaky Knees could not get any better, the festival organizers have announced the addition of the new bands to the party, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard and PUP. Yes, you read that correctly. What are you waiting for? Go snag up those tickets here. See you there!
Have you heard the great news, Atlanta?
The annual Shaky Knees roster has been released. It’s one for the ages, too. Set to take place during the May 1-3, 2020 weekend in beautiful Central Park, the good folks behind organizing the annual shindig have gone to great lengths to provide us with a “wow” lineup. Per usual, Shaky Knees has unleashed a versatile array of artists from all corners of the music industry spectrum. Leading this maniacally superb charge are 3 jaw-dropping headliners: the bluesy duo The Black Keys, ’90s alt-rock darlings, The Smashing Pumpkins and New York cool cats, The Strokes.
While the headliners kick ass, without a doubt, three days is a lot of time to fill. Luckily, Shaky Knees’ undercard is pure gold, as well. Among the eye-popping virtuosos are: classic rock outfit, Royal Blood, New York indie trio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, beach goth badasses, The Growlers, legendary Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, and local Georgia heroes, Drive-By Truckers, among many, many more.
So, Atlantans, the stage is set. Now it is on you to get clicking and buy your tickets. Gather up your friends and family, request that time off from work, and get stoked. The atmosphere promises to be wicked cool, full of beers, fun-loving aficionados, and, of course, a killer display of otherworldly talent. Get going, get tickets here. Hopefully, we will see you there. Cheers!
