Music Midtown 2015 schedule announced


With less than a week to go before Music Midtown 2015 spreads out at Piedmont Park , it's time to officially start planning.

With the headliners starting at 9 and 9:30 p.m. respectively each night, at least a Drake fan could feasibly catch a sampling of Sir Elton and Sam Smith followers hear some of Eddie Van Halen's legendary soloing.

I, meanwhile, will be trying to figure out how to hear Daryl Hall & John Oates AND Billy Idol at the same time on Saturday.

This should be the most difficult decision of our Music Midtown weekend, right?
