Oh man, it’s back. Music Midtown is a beautiful festival in Piedmont Park, Atlanta, GA that has been going strong since its resurgence 2 years ago. We covered the festival when it came back 2 years ago and it was a magical experience with artists such as The Black Keys, Coldplay, Young The Giant, and many more. Last year featured SceneSC favorites The Avett Brothers, Foo Fighters, and Ludacris. I was not too excited about last year’s lineup but when this year’s was released, I almost cried. They’ve got everyone, INCLUDING 2 Chainz. Fingers crossed that he’s going to be there to promote his new cookbook #MEALTIME. I would literally pay all the money in the world to watch 2 Chainz cook in front of a huge crowd while freestyling about what he sees in front of him.
“If wearing a four-finger ring, carefully place it on a side table before starting to cook.”
That is a direct quote.
Anyways, I’m not here to solely talk about 2 Chainz, we’re also going to be treating ourselves to a set by Arctic Monkeys, who just released their fantastic new album AM. After a couple albums that were good-ish, they’ve sorted themselves out, headlined Glastonbury, and made a real Arctic Monkeys album. Along with them, you’re going to feast your eyes on Queens of the (fucking) Stone Age, Phoenix, Tegan & Sara, and a whole lot more.
