ATLANTA (AP) — Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, T.I. and Ludacris will headline two days of concerts in September at Atlanta's Music Midtown.
Organizers of the music festival announced on Tuesday that the event will take place at Piedmont Park. The musicians are slated to perform from Sept. 21-22.
The two-day concert marks the second straight year Music Midtown will be held after a five-year break. Coldplay and Black Keys headlined the one-day festival last year.
This year's lineup also will feature Florence and The Machine, The Avett Brothers, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Girl Talk, Civil Twilight, LP and O'Brother.
“We will continually endeavor to bring amazing artists to Music Midtown, making sure that everyone has the best experience they could want at this festival,” says Festival Promoter, Peter Conlon of Live Nation. “Last year we moved quickly to re-introduce the festival and this year, we have expanded our dates to encompass Friday, making this a two-day experience with a more diverse lineup.”
Tickets go on sale April 28 and start at $100 for a two-day festival pass.
