All you need to know about Music Midtown 2014 – from schedules to transportation to food
There are those who continue to miss the Music Midtowns of the past — and, sure enough, they were amazing productions, with dozens of stages and acts ranging from Courtney Love to Tony Bennett.
But to dismiss what Music Midtown has presented since its return in 2011 is a disservice to what fans will experience Friday and Saturday at Piedmont Park.
You want new music? Expect to see plenty of high school and college-age fans flocking to the fest’s three stages for Iggy Azalea, Lorde, Bastille, Banks and B.o.B.
Veteran acts? Yeah, there are some of those, too, in the form of Gregg Allman, Run-D.M.C. and — gulp — Third Eye Blind.
And how about the headliners? Friday gives you the option of the sticky fuzz-rock of Jack White or the radio-friendly guitar wailing of John Mayer. On Saturday, if you aren’t into the fluid rap of Eminem, then head to the other headliner stage for a Southern rock-country gumbo with the Zac Brown Band.
