One word for this year’s Music Midtown–EPIC.
Now when you purchase your tickets there are three options: General Admission, VIP and Super VIP. Some of these ticket options provide you with some pretty cool features like backstage access, private indoor/outdoor areas to schmooze over cocktails and the best feature: private restrooms. That’s always better than sharing with thousands of other people.
Also, some of the proceeds from this year’s Music Midtown will go to the Centers of Hope initiative. This will help fund recreation centers and after-school activities for kids in the Atlanta area. Good music with a good purpose. I love it.
So hurry and get your tickets so you can jam out to these great performers! If anyone gets an autograph from Florence or the lead singer of Neon Trees, jealousy will be sent your way… lovingly, of course.
