One of the country's last remaining independent music festivals is set to take place at the end of August in Atlanta Georgia. This year, a 3-day fully immersive aquatic fairytale is being held at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and includes perks such as an exclusive silent disco for campers going until 6am, live cirque performances from Cirque USA, amusement rides, sacred ceremonies, yoga, and treats like no other make this a festival to be reckoned with. Expecting over 26,000 attendees and with a capacity of up to 100,000 it seems like Imagine Music festival is gearing up for their best year yet!
Over the years, as Imagine Music festival keeps growing, the founders want to hold true to their integrity and values. Their values and history in the music scene definitely makes attending this festival unique. Similar to other festivals, Imagine is giving back to the community with the money made from ticket sales; however they are doing something extra special by donating WATER to children in Ghana. Imagine has teamed up with AQUA, a water hologram that gives back to third world countries. All donations are going to the AQUA fund which will turn into Life Straws (straws that make all water drinkable) for children in Ghana. Simply put: 1 ticket= 1 year of clean water to a child.
Staying true to theme there will be water rides, a splash pool, misting domes, mesmerizing water holograms and The Imaginarium put on by Zen Awakening Festival and Cirque USA (the Center of Consciousness). The festival keeps bringing out more and more as the days count down just making you wonder if the founders are reading your brain as you daydream about the experience you're about to have. There are headliners stacked on headliners with two newly added stages to equal a total of seven stages to go to with each hosting their own special vibe. Excision, Nero, Showtek, Zeds Dead, Pantyraid, Benny Benassi, Adventure Club, Dillon Francis, Keys N Krates, Pendulum, Phutureprimitive, Space Jesus, G Jones and many more. Yet, this festival truly seems like it is meant to be more than just about the music and sets out to be an overall experience with more live art installations, more performers, and more production than many festivals.
