The organizers of the Shaky Knees Festival (May 8-10, 2015) are taking Atlanta festivalling to the next level this summer. First, they introduced a companion country festival and now they’ve gone and dropped an incredible lineup for this year’s Shaky Knees. The headliners may be The Strokes, The Avett Brothers, and Wilco but the lineup goes deep with Pixies, Social Distortion, Floggin Molly, Kaiser Chiefs, Interpol, The Black Lips, Minus the Bear, Old 97s, Two Gallants, and Surfer Blood.
Considering that this event is only three years old, this Shaky Knees lineup is definitely ramping up from their debut in 2013. The festival will expand to Central Park Place this year. Advance tickets go on sale January 16 at 10am and will run you $199 for a GA pass and $499 for a VIP pass. Single day tickets will be available closer to the show for around $99, but with this lineup, we’re expecting this show to sell out.
