Music Midtown on hiatus for 2024, maybe longer – WABE

An iconic music festival that spans three decades in Atlanta is — in the words of its promoters — “on hiatus” until 2024.

Music Midtown posted the announcement Wednesday morning on social media.

The message reads: “After producing legendary festivals over the past three decades that have attracted music fans from around the world, we would like to announce that Music Midtown is on hiatus this year. »

The message also encourages fans to support live music in the city.

Mara Davis is a longtime music promoter in Atlanta. According to her, this announcement is not a surprise. “Even though Music Midtown has had many, many iconic years, I think part of it is just a sign of the times,” Davis said.

Music Midtown has not indicated whether the pause is permanent or when the festival might resume.
