Nas, Porter Robinson, Odesza, A$AP Ferg Headline Shaky Beats 2016 Lineup
Shaky Beats Music Festival has unveiled nearly all of the artists for its inaugural 2016 lineup. Among those who will headline the move to Atlanta in May 2016 are Odesza, Big Gigantic, Porter Robinson, Nas, A$AP Ferg and Duke Dumont.
Other acts who are on the bill include Carnage, Tory Lanez, Pomo, Marshmello, Yellow Claw, MØ, Classixx, The M Machine, Floating Points and Cherub.
Though the lineup is dominated by electronic acts, there are some hip-hop artists like the aforementioned, Nas, who is gearing up for an album release in 2016, A$AP Ferg, who is prepping the same, Torey Lanez, Aer and Sir The Baptist.
However the strength of this lineup is its electronic music and the diversity within that realm. There will be more bass-heavy sounds from the likes of Lunice, NGHTMRE, Yellow Claw, Carnage, Cherub, The M Machine, Trippy Turtle and Marshmello. A mixture of glitch, shimmering electro and more downtempo house tracks will come from Porter Robinson, Odesza, Classixx, Jai Wolf, STRFKR, and Pomo.
There are a few oddballs like Floating Points and MØ on the lineup as well.
More artists are yet to be announced including one major headliner.
This will be the first ever Shaky Beats Festival after the same promoter C3 Presents has put on their annual Shaky Knees Festival, which has quickly grown in fame with high-profile lineups. Shaky Knees in its first three years has managed to pull in names like Modest Mouse, The National, The Strokes, The Avett Brothers, Wilco, The Lumineers and Band Of Horses.
Shaky Beats Music Festival will take place from May 20-22 in Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets are on sale now starting at $162 for an advanced three-day general admission pass. Single day tickets will also become available soon.
