Music Midtown 2014 is upon us! This weekend some of the biggest stars in music will descend upon Atlanta’s Piedmont Park and we want you to be prepared to have an epic experience. Like any good Boy Scout will tell you, preparation is key so here is all the information you need (and information you didn’t know you needed) to ensure you’re all set to take Music Midtown like a boss. Don’t forget to review the lineup schedule so you know when you need to sprint across the park to catch your favorite act
MUSIC MIDTOWN APP:
If you haven’t already, make sure you’ve downloaded the official new Music Midtown 2014 App, powered by AT&T to get the latest news and updates on the festival. The app is available for iPhone and Android devices.
Friday at 4:00 pm and Saturday at 12:00 pm
There are five entrance gates into the festival grounds:
· The Charles Allen Gate located at the corner of 10th Street and Charles Allen Drive
· The Park Drive/Bridge Gate is available to attendees coming from Monroe and Park Drives
· The Lakeside Gate is accessible at the 14th Street entrance to the park or by Magnolia Hall (Tennis Courts)
· The 10th Street Gate located across from Grady High School
· The 12th Street Gate located at 12th Street and Piedmont
Ticketmaster Will Call can be picked up from any of the three box offices. All other Will Call must be picked up from the main box office at 10th and Charles Allen.
Not to worry, re-entry will be permitted but you MUST have your ticket “scanned out” when exiting. You must use the same ticket to gain re-entry to the festival grounds.
Music Midtown offers a wide array of food and beverages prepared onsite for your enjoyment including some of Atlanta’s great restaurants: Bhojanic, Williamson Brothers BBQ, On Tapa the World, Caribbean Grill, Happy Belly, Nectar Food Truck, King of Pops and many more! Beverage stations, street trucks and other festival food favorites will be throughout the site including vegetarian and gluten-free options. New menus and food trucks have been added in both SUPER VIP and VIP areas.
Besides the big musical draw, Music Midtown is about the local community. Here you will be able to load up on artist merch, meet your favorite DJ on radio row, enjoy a local artisan’s wares or stop by a sponsor booth for sampling, swag and more.
For your convenience, here is a downloadable site map for planning your weekend
