With festival season in full swing, Imagine Music Festival (September 21-23) is bringing high-energy vibes to the Atlanta Motor Speedway with one of the biggest electronic dance music festivals in the United States. Armed with a stacked lineup, an aquatic production theme, and a dedicated fanbase, this festival is going to be one you will not want to miss.
At the top of the bill, electronic dance legends Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, and Alesso need no introduction. With chart topping hits that put a trance on those at main stage, these EDM legends will not be sets to sleep on.
On the harder side of the spectrum, artists Bassnectar, Zeds Dead, Getter, 12th Planet, Bear Grillz, Liquid Stranger, Riot Ten, and Boogie T b2b Squnto are going to rip their stages up with a selection of heavy bass music. My absolute must-sees for the festival are those in the list above—especially since I’ve seen their live sets before and loved them.
Similarly, artists Griz, Adventure Club, RL Grime, The Glitch Mob, and Galantis are making an appearance that will not only captivate fans with their unique sounds but will ultimately make the festival experience more immersive for fans that support the rave scene.
With another addition to the festival experience, Imagine Music Festival is partnering up with Surreal for a fundraiser benefiting the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta with two exclusive artist experiences to help raise proceeds. With two winners selected, they will each receive a 2 VIP tickets to the festival, roundtrip airfare, VIP Glamping, and an artist experience they picked. Choices include a meet and greet with Armin Van Buuren, a view of Kaskade’s set from side stage, a golf cart escort ride with Alesso, an eat and greet with Bear Grillz—and the list goes on. Running until September 5, fans can enter by submitting a mail-in entry form or through tier-based donations. Donations start at just $5 and the experience packages are valued at $2,100. Fans also have the choice to donate $25 for 5 entries or $75 for 20 entries into the experience lottery.
