The initial lineup has been announced for the inaugural Shaky Beats Music Festival. The event will be taking place May 20-22, 2016 at Centennial Olympic Park located in downtown Atlanta.


Artists this year include: ODESZA, Big Gigantic, Nas, Porter Robinson, Carnage, Duke Dumont, Yellow Claw, A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez, Cherub, MØ, Marshmello and many more.

The diverse lineup lands in Atlanta during late spring. Music at the Shaky Beats festival will showcase up-and-coming acts, as well as established performers.

Shaky Beats features more electronic-based musicians in comparison to Shaky Knees Music Festival.

The fourth annual Shaky Knees Festival will take place one week prior, on May 13-15, at Centennial Olympic Park. The festival, which has earned strong indie rock credibility amongst music fans, will release its highly anticipated 2016 lineup in January. Five acts are still in the works for Shaky Beats Music Festival. Stay connected with them on Twitter for the latest updates.

“We are extremely pleased to bring a fresh new festival to Atlanta. The idea to present genres such as electronic, hip hop and indie dance to fans was the logical next move for the Shaky brand,” said Tim Sweetwood, President, Shaky Festivals.
