Kaskade, The Chainsmokers, GRiZ Headline 2017 Shaky Beats Lineup
The Chainsmokers, Kaskade and GRiZ are among the headliners for this year's Shaky Beats lineup. The 2017 edition will draw upon a wide range of electronic music artists as the sister festival to the larger, rock, indie & folk-centric Shaky Knees Festival that was announced earlier today.
Other names also on the bill include Zeds Dead, Galantis, Flosstradamus, who will be just Curt in 2017 after Josh split from the duo, Alison Wonderland, Girl Talk, Bonobo (Live) and Claude VonStroke.
The lineup is primarily DJs and electronic music, but there will be a couple of hip-hop acts that have a following within dance music and crossover to these festivals. They include Kaiydo and Flatbush Zombies.
There will be some live acts headed to Atlanta in May as well including Bonobo as a part of his Migration album tour, Illenium, who is billed as having a "special live performance" and Echos.
Indie act, Little Dragon stand out as another outlier.
With over 40 artists booked for the festival, there is some solid diversity amongst the electronic acts. There is a bit of trap, commercial house music, underground leaning house, dubstep and everything in between.
Shaky Beats will take place from May 5-7 at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. Advance general admission tickets for Shaky Beats start at $165 and are available now. They can be picked up on the festival's website.
In its second year, Shaky Beats is the dance offshoot of Shaky Knees Festival, which announced its lineup earlier today. The xx, Phoenix, LCD Soundystem, Cage The Elephant, Pixies and others are among those who will perform at the festival.
