Americana mainstays My Morning Jacket, reunited ’90s alt-rockers Jane’s Addiction and English indie-pop sensaton Florence and the Machine will headline the 2016 edition of Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival, organizers announced today.
The festival, which takes place May 13–15 at Centennial Olympic Park—yet another change in location following last year’s move from Atlantic Station to Midtown’s Central Park—will also feature sets from Deftones, At the Drive-In, Huey Lewis and the News, Bloc Party, The Decemberists, Against Me!, Phosphorescent and many others, including Eagles of Death Metal, the band that was performing at the Bataclan nightclub on the evening of the Paris terror attacks in November.
Advance three-day tickets are on sale for $215 via the festival’s website, while individual day passes are on sale for $102.
Promoter Tim Sweetwood’s ever-expanding enterprise also announced the debut installment of the EDM-focused Shaky Beats Festival, which will take place May 20–22, also at Centennial Olympic Park. Last year saw the first installment of the Shaky Boots Festival, a country and Americana affair.
