Things are about to get super serious in the ATL.
Last year, the folks at IRIS Presents pushed their idea of a downtown festival to new heights with a smokin' lineup featuring everything from hip-hop to superstar trap to psychedelic weirdness. It was a smash success.
This year, though, the team went a little crazy. OK, a lot crazy. IRIS has assembled a lineup the likes of which the city has never seen. On August 29 and 30, thousands of dance music fans will descend upon Fourth Ward Park & Masquerade Music Park in downtown Atlanta, GA for a double dose of the biggest acts in the biz. This is Imagine Music Festival.
Imagine brings the biggest and best in production to the festival, and last year, IRIS went all out with an incredible underwater theme. Fans get dressed up and stages get decked out for a magical, transformative experience.
The really cool thing is that Imagine Music Festival books a great variety of huge EDM superstars and underground heroes for a genre-bending affair which packs a little something for everyone. As is our duty, we will break down the Top 10 acts for you to catch at Imagine this year.
10. Le Castle Vania
Dylan Eiland has been traveling nonstop with the Warped Tour, but will return to his Atlanta home for Imagine with a brand new 4-track EP with LUMBERJVCK under his belt. Shit's about to get real serious.
9. K Theory
Always pushing the boundaries, the K Theory sound is a constantly changing experiment in what makes a club go off. These are audio engineers crafting the perfect song with surgical precision.
8. Eliot Lipp x Paul Basic
What do you do when you get 8's in Blackjack? You split 'em. So we'll split our 8-spot for the two PLM acts on the bill, who are throwing down some new sounds and switching up the game.
