ATLANTA —

Pearl Jam, Ludacris, Foo Fighters and TI will headline Music Midtown this year, slated for Sept. 21 and 22.

Live Nation’s Peter Conlon, along with Atlanta City Councilmen Alex Wan and Kwanza Hall, announced the 2012 Music Midtown lineup and official expansion to a two-day music experience at Greystone in Piedmont Park Tuesday night.


“We will continually endeavor to bring amazing artists to Music Midtown, making sure that everyone has the best experience they could want at this festival,” Conlon said. “Last year we moved quickly to re-introduce the festival and this year, we have expanded our dates to encompass Friday, making this a two-day experience with a more diverse lineup.”


The 2012 lineup features Foo Fighters, Van Hunt, TI, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts and The Avett Brothers on Friday. On Saturday, Pearl Jam, Ludacris, Girl Talk, Florence and The Machine, Civil Twilight, LP and O’Brother are slated to perform. 


“One of the best things about Atlanta is its thriving arts and culture community,” said Mayor Kasim Reed. “This is a city that is deeply tied to the music, film and entertainment industry. The Music Midtown concert series, which returned to Atlanta last September, is a world-class event which attracts thousands of music lovers to the heart of the city for unparalleled live music, food, energy and excitement.”
