Sometimes music just happens. In the case of pop singer Sigrid, the opportunity quite literally fell into her lap while studying in Norway. “I wanted to be a teacher, or I wanted to be a lawyer,” she told TIME magazine earlier this year. “I had very specific plans. But then music happened.”
The Music Midtown festival takes place annually in September in the city of Atlanta. It is a chance for musicians to showcase their art, genres at the festival range from R&B to pop and indie. Country music artist Kacey Musgraves of Nashville has the opportunity to be a part of this experience next month in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park.
In case you were not in Atlanta this weekend, Music Midtown has finally returned home after a six year hiatus. The line-up was not as impressive as it has been in previous years, but nevertheless, the crowd employed a consensus that Music Midtown should be stationed in Atlanta for many years to come. Rock fans far and wide pitched tents, and brought coolers and blankets as they camped out all over Piedmont Park in an effort to get the best view of two stages soon to be occupied by The Constellations, Young the Giant, The Joy Formidable, Manchester Orchestra, The Black Keys, The Postelles, Walk the Moon, Band of Skulls, Cage the Elephant, and Coldplay. There was a wonderful turnout for the opening acts, beginning with The Postelles, who kicked off the show at one o’clock.
