What festival is complete without the big reunion? While we keep hearing that Shaky Knees Music Fest can't possibly be improved upon, we've gone ahead and added The Replacements to this year's event. This will be their first performance in the southeast since May of 1991! Shaky Knees Music Festival takes place in Atlanta's Atlantic Station, May 9-11, 2014.
Single day tickets will go on sale tomorrow, February 6th at 10:00 AM EST. Each day will only cost $84 per ticket. But with a lineup this impressive, the three-day ticket is the economical way to go. Advanced three-day passes will cost $150 (when these advance tickets are sold out, three-day will cost $169), while the VIP three-day passes will be only $575 (advanced three-day VIP is now sold out). That's an amazing price that includes access to special lounges and viewing areas close to the stages, private restrooms, private bars, complimentary food and beer & cash liquor bars (must be 21+ to enjoy the free beer).
