This marks the 25th anniversary of Music Midtown, which debuted in 1994 on a slate of undeveloped land on Peachtree and 10th streets in Midtown. The festival was created by concert promoters Alex Cooley and Peter Conlon; Cooley passed away in December 2015 and Conlon is the president of Live Nation Atlanta, which produces the current Music Midtown.
