The History of Music Midtown Festival

Music Midtown was a large music festival held in Atlanta, Georgia from 1994 to 2005. It is once again resurrected for 2011.

The festival ran on one weekend each year from 1994 to 2005. The event drew in excess of 300,000 attendees per year during its peak years. Music Midtown started as a two-day event with three stages. It later grew to three-day event. During the years that Music Midtown had a three-day run, the event had six main stages, each typically were sponsored by a local radio station that were used to present dozens of bands playing a wide variety of musical genres.

Promoters placed the festival on hiatus in 2006 which ran through 2010. This was due to a decline in attendance and rising expenses after the 2005 Music Midtown.

On July 6, 2011, it was announced that Music Midtown would return for 2011. This incarnation will only be a one-day event with only two stages.
