Music Midtown 2018 unveils daily schedule, ticket upgrade option

6 Music Midtown acts to catch this year Kacey Musgraves will perform at 6:45 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. Janelle Monae will hit the stage Sunday, Sept. 16, at 4:45 p.m. Post Malone will perform during the 9:45 p.m. show Saturday, Sept. 15. Catch Foster the People at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16. Newcomer Khalid will perform at 6:45 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16. Kendrick Lamar will finish out Music Midtown at 8:45 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16.

Music Midtown planners, take note – the two-day schedule for the festival has been released (see below) and with it, the option to upgrade your general admission tickets.

A new "GA+" viewing area at each of the four stages will alleviate some neck craning. A limited number of passes are available for $100 per day (plus service charges) at www.musicmidtown.com. Note that the GA+ upgrade does not grant access to the festival and must be accompanied by a ticket.

General admission tickets are $145 (plus fees) until 11:59 p.m. Aug. 31; prices increase to $155 (plus fees) on Sept. 1. A limited number of VIP and Super VIP packages are also available. All can be purchased via www.musicmidtown.com.

The annual festival will take place Sept. 15-16 at Piedmont Park.

Fans can also enter the “Whatever It Takes (to be close to the stage)” promotion on the Music Midtown website, which will present a winner with a pair of GA tickets (including the two-day GA+ upgrades), as well as an autographed Imagine Dragons album.

Imagine Dragons will help close out the Sunday night of Music Midtown.
