It’s not even Thanksgiving yet but music fans and concert junkies are already getting their wallets and dancing endurance ready for next year’s festival season. Atlanta’s rock-heavy Shaky Knees Festival shared their lineup for the coming year on Wednesday morning. As one of the first major music events to share their confirmed 2019 lineup, the multi-day music event stole headlines on Wednesday as they boasted a listing of names led by Tame Impala, Beck, Cage The Elephant and Incubus.
The three-day rock festival will return to Atlanta’s Central Park this spring on May 3-5. As one of the earlier major festivals of the season, organizers can expect plenty of rock fans with fresh dancing legs to show up and rage for their entire weekend of loud and guitar-friendly performances. Other names of scheduled performers who can be seen littering the event’s 2019 poster seen below include the return of Foals, festival favorite Gary Clark Jr., Interpol, breakout Aussie guitarist Tash Sultana, The Struts, Dashboard Confessional, Liz Phair, The Dandy Warhols and many more. Some of the highlight names worth pointing out towards the middle and latter half of the 2019 poster also include Japanese Breakfast, The Joy Formidable, Lucy Dacus, Natalie Prass and Slothrust, just to name a few.
The two most buzzed-about names featured on the poster are undoubtedly Tame Impala and Foals, who are both expected to return with new studio projects at some point in 2019. For Foals, the production process for their highly-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s What Went Down has been somewhat weighed by the amicable departure of their bassist Walter Gervers. As for Tame Impala, the band’s leader Kevin Parker has kept busy touring as well as writing/recording with other pop artists since his Currents LP arrived back in July 2015. More recently, Parker was a victim, along with many other southern California residents, who were forced to leave their valuables and homes around the Malibu area due to record-breaking fires engulfing the seaside land.
Fans can get their three-day passes for the springtime event by heading over to the festival’s official website.
