The building-shaking thumps and electrifying lights of the Shaky Beats Music Festival will return for a second year this spring with a high-profile lineup including The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Griz, Flosstradamus, Zeds Dead, Galantis, RL Grime, Gramatik and Girl Talk.
More than 45 artists will perform on three stages staggered around Centennial Olympic Park.
This year, the three-day festival spotlighting EDM, hip-hop and indie dance music will take place May 5-7, the weekend before the rock-pop-oriented Shaky Knees Music Festival (that lineup is coming Tuesday).
Shaky Beats is an 18 and older event.
Advanced general admission three-day tickets ($165) and advanced VIP 3-day tickets ($399) will go on sale at 11 a.m. Monday at www.shakybeatsfestival.com. VIP perks include lounge access, a viewing platform, complimentary beer and wine, a cash liquor bar, appetizers served twice daily, air conditioned restrooms and access to the general admission areas.
