Shaky Knees Music Festival has announced a star-studded lineup featuring The Black Keys, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Strokes. The festival’s eighth iteration is bringing world famous headliners alongside up and coming artists. With a total of 65 bands, including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Portugal. The Man, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Of Monsters & Men, and Liam Gallagher, fans can see and hear all their favorite bands May 1-3 2020 at Central Park in Atlanta, Georgia.
It’s been a particularly busy year for the three headliners. This summer, The Black Keys released their ninth studio album, Let’s Rock, to critical acclaim. The Smashing Pumpkins have been co-headlining a tour with Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds. Their live cover of James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain” showcased an innovative take on a country classic, giving new light to the song. The Stokes performance at Shaky Knees certainly won’t be their first. Their 2020 international tour includes festival stops at Tecate P’al Norte in Mexico and at Lollapalooza Brasil.
Shaky Knees fans have a variety of ticket options to choose from. While 3-Day General Admission proves to be the standard, GA+ offers seating, shade, complimentary water and soft drinks, and full-service cash bar. VIP Tickets give fans up-close viewing areas and platforms with elevated sightlines to main stage. Platinum Tickets include a private viewing deck as well as access to the premiere Platinum Lounge with a catered dinner. Tickets are currently on sale at www.shakykneesfestival.com/tickets/.
