I finally was able to attend the Shaky Knees Music Festival and it did not disappoint. From Denver, it’s an easy jump over to Atlanta, and the fest offered a variety of reasonably priced hotels near Central Park, where Shaky Knees is held. The fest itself is also reasonably priced (around $250 for GA), especially considering the staggering amount of insanely good music showcased over three days.
As you can tell by the huge photo gallery (of day one!) below, I ran around like crazy trying to catch as many acts as possible. For maybe the first time ever, I can say there wasn’t one that I didn’t really, really love. Let me pontificate a little more and say everyone at Shaky Knees completely killed it.
I am not sure why I didn’t connect that Central Park is truly a park, and while the weather was quite a bit warmer than we’d been having in Colorado – the trees and shady areas really helped keep the heat at bay.
Check out a map of the fest layout and you can see the thought that went into how the bands would alternate between stages, with food, drink, and bathrooms plotted in between.
Day two and three photos coming soon, but for now – SAVE THE DATE. Shaky Knees will return May 5-7, 2023. I have already cleared my calendar for that weekend!
Bands Featured: Little Image, Flipturn, Motherfolk, Faye Webster, Grandson, Highly Suspect, Spoon, Rainbow Kitten Surprise and Dropkick Murphys.
