The South may be more known for its hip-hop scene than any other genre of music, but its underground electronic music scene is beginning to swell and is rising to the surface with a massive outdoor festival that is coming to Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, April 20.
Famed electronic music promoters Liquified and Disco Donnie are teaming up to present the first ever Magnetic Festival at the Kennesaw State Sports and Recreation Park in Atlanta. The event will feature three stages, incredible audio and visual effects, video mapped stage designs and some of EDM’s heaviest hitters, including Flux Pavilion, Zeds Dead, Dash Berlin, Darth & Vader, Adventure Club, Cazzette and more.
The site is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta, but concert goers will likely feel like they are in another dimension. The 88-acre park will feature the aforementioned stages – one of which will be in a stadium with a capacity of 16,000 people – and a nine-acre lake with the beautiful and majestic Kennesaw Mountain serving as a perfect nighttime backdrop.
If the lineup and the setting weren’t enough to get electronic music fans pumped up, the names behind the event should do the trick. Together Liquified and Disco Donnie have more than 40 years of promoting experience for electronic music festivals and events. Liquified has already put on several successful shows in the South, even in Atlanta. It brought Tiesto to the Hotlanta just last year for a sold out show at Wild Bill’s.
“Dance music culture has exploded globally, and we are proud to have been at the forefront of this scene,” said festival promoter Damian Murphy, via EDMSauce.com. “Joining forces with Disco Donnie Presents is a natural partnership, which allows us to bring this amazing new festival experience to Liquified’s home base.”
The event is open to ages 16+ and general admission tickets are still available for $65. There are also VIP packages available that include premium parking, access to exclusive lounges, gift bags, and more. Tickets will be sold at the gate if they don’t sell out in advance, but let’s be honest, they almost assuredly will, so you’ll want to snatch up your own as soon as possible.
