Music Heavyweights To Perform at Music Midtown 2012 In September

Pearl Jam
Some of music's biggest names will be performing at  Midtown Music 2012 come September. The two-day event is scheduled for September 21-22 and will take place in the 10th Street Meadow at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia. The park has two stages on which the artists and bands will perform. It's going to be a massive groovathon with performers representing a wide spectrum of genres, from alternative to R&B and indie rock to hip hop among others. Some of the artists and bands set to take the stage at the festival include Pearl Jam, T.I., Foo Fighters, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Ludacris, Florence + the Machine and Van Hunt, to name a few.

Music Midtown is a huge music festival held in Atlanta, Georgia that was launched in 1994 and ran until 2005. In its peak years, the festival drew in access of 300,000 attendees annually. The festival began as a two-day event with three stages. It later expanded to a three-day event. During the time when the festival had a three-day run, it had six main stages, and each one was typically sponsored by a local radio station. The stages were used to feature dozens of bands that played in a myriad of music styles. Due to a decline in ticket sales and rising expenses following the 2005 Music Midtown, promoters placed the festival on hiatus in 2006, which ran through 2010. In 2011, the festival started up again in its current incarnation of a two-day event on two stages. For more info about Music Midtown 2012, go the their website.
