Those who know many performers on a festival's lineup and have a full schedule planned will easily enjoy themselves, but the challenge is getting those who attend for one band or just the headliners to have a good time and discover new artists they enjoy. This year's Music Midtown was scheduled well in that, even if you chose to camp out near one stage all day, you could see a variety of talented artists with breaks of about an hour and a half in between.

Indie-folk collective The Head and the Heart headlined a two-night stand at Georgia Theatre last week, along with opener Savannah Conley. Both shows sold out well ahead of time, so, as expected, the venue was packed on Thursday evening. The crowd was energetic and lively even before the concert began, which would come to be a theme throughout.

An idea from Broken String Band’s Sean Stephansen quickly turned into a reality with the help of Terrapin Beer Co. Presented by Terrapin After Hours, the Fest of Ale Music & Arts Festival made its 2018 debut Saturday, Aug. 11. “I am so impressed with how many people came out, and the bands have been great,” Stephansen said.
The 2018 Sigh in July Music and Arts Festival featured musical talent on three stages, art all over the venue and a variety of new activities for this year's attendees. Even though the second night was cut short due to an unexpected hailstorm, the festival at Live Wire delivered a weekend of memorable moments.
The Classic City American Music Festival celebrated 10 years on Sunday at The Foundry in Athens. Twelve bands performed on two stages over the course of the afternoon and into the evening, featuring a combination of country, folk, rock, bluegrass and rockabilly sounds.

Monday night, U2 made their long-awaited return to the Atlanta area when they made a stop at the Infinite Energy Center Arena in Duluth on their The Experience + Innocence Tour. It has been nine years since the Irish rockers played the Georgia Dome to a reported crowd of 61,000 during their 360° Tour. Comparatively, Infinite Energy could be considered “intimate” with a capacity of 12,000.

I spent last week in Austin, TX seeing as many bands as I could in an attempt to gain valuable content for Flagpole Music’s Instagram account. Just a few days into my trip, I contracted an intense infection that would push my body to its limits and turn SXSW’s already somewhat stressful environment into an Eraserhead-like nightmare. Here are five acts that I saw while sick that I still managed to love.

For just about three weeks leading up to this year’s South by Southwest, I’d been increasingly bothered by sustained pain on my upper right side that spread from my shoulder to my neck and then straight down my arm until everything felt like it was on fire all the time. After dragging myself to double appointments with both an acupuncturist and chiropractor the week before traveling, it was determined that I was injured for the most unexciting reasons (years of bad sleeping positions, poor posture, general misadventure).
