I’ve always heard of Imagine Music Festival. Inklings of conversations really, but I never realized how massive this event is, and how much FOMO I now feel for not attending it before. So let’s dive into it together: the FOMO I feel from not attending last year, and what’s coming this year.
Imagine Music Festival: a three-day, camping, electronic dance music festival held in Atlanta, GA. This year, the festival is taking place September 22-24, 2017. Last year it moved to a new location, the Atlanta Motor Speedway, where over 25,000 attendees christened the new venue. As events get bigger, I have a feeling the only place that can hold them is auto speedways, and we’ll all be spending more time at them.
So let’s start with my FOMO. Imagine Music Festival releases their 2016 after movie, all glorious 10 minutes of it, at the end of March. The video covers the full experience from last year, and has some awesome arial views that really give you a scope of the event. The video on YouTube has close to 5 million views, which is nuts. I totally feel like I’ve been left out of this awesome community of people who have been going to this festival…
And now let’s look forward. Imagine is in its fourth year now, and with a return to the same venue as last year, this means there’s going to be upgrades from last year for attendees. Staying in the same venue offers a festival the opportunity to improve and grow, so this is super exciting for Imagine, and for those attending. The Imagine team mentions changes in expanded water stations, camping upgrades and an improved VIP area.
The lineup this year…I mean, it has ALMOST all of my favorite artists. Test, A&B, Flux, Big Gigantic, STS9… and an drum and bass stage! I hurts my heart how badly I want to go!
The festival is aquatic themed (I love me a good theme) and the venue boasts a pool to escape the heat. The festival is pretty cool too in that you don’t HAVE to camp. There’s hotels nearby and shuttle passes you can purchase to get to/from the festival.
I also LOVE these festivals outside of California that have totally reasonable ticket prices. While they’re sold out now, the early bird tickets for a 3-day GA pass was $125. Even now, for 3 days it’s only $199. You can still buy tickets here.
Check back in soon, as I’ll get some fun outfits designed for you tuned to the aquatic theme!
Seeing live music has always been in my top 5 favorite things that I like to do. Ever since I turned 16 and could drive myself I’ve been attending as many live music events as I can. And I love all types of music, from classical piano to dubstep.
