As we mentioned last week, all signs pointed to legendary rockers Pearl Jam adding another U.S. festival date and today we received our confirmation. Seattle-originated stalwarts Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam will headline September 21 and September 22 respectively of Music Midtown in Atlanta. Music Midtown is a long-running festival held in The Big Peach that took a five-year hiatus before returning last year. The two-stage event will take place in Piedmont Park.
In addition to Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters, the other bands set to play Music Midtown are The Avett Brothers, T.I., Florence & The Machine, Ludacris, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Avett Brothers, Girl Talk, Van Hunt, Civil Twilight, LP and Oh Brother. Tickets will initially cost you $55 per day or $100 for the whole shebang and go on sale this Saturday via Ticketmaster. Prices are expected to jump during the summer.
Here’s the breakdown by day…
Sept. 21: Foo Fighters, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, T.I., Avett Brothers and Van Hunt.
Sept. 22: Pearl Jam, Ludacris and Florence & The Machine. Girl Talk, Civil Twilight, LP and Oh Brother
