MAY 12-13: Shaky Knees Music Festival
In its fifth year, Shaky Knees is known as the region’s best independent and alternative-rock festival. What some may call a musical niche is actually a growing genre gaining more attention and fans each year, and Shaky Knees is proof—attendance skyrocketed from 9,000 in 2013 to 66,000 in 2015. This year's lineup features some of indie and alt-rock's biggest names, including LCD Soundsystem, Cage the Elephant, The XX, X Ambassadors, Phoenix and Ryan Adams. Tickets start at $99 (single day) and $185 (three day). Centennial Olympic Park, 888.512.7469. www.shakykneesfestival.com
