With festival season underway, here’s a festival that should be on your radar.

On the weekend of September 21st, 2018, Atlanta’s Imagine Music Festival will celebrate its 5th anniversary. Returning to its stomping grounds of the Atlanta Motor Speedway, the festival is gearing up for another monumental year.

Imagine just released their highly anticipated phase 1 lineup announcement, and there’s a lot to be excited about. Over 40 artists have been announced, ranging from fan-favorites to up-and-comers, and trap to techno.

Headliners include incredible artists like Armin Van Buuren, Alesso, Galantis, RL GrimeGreen Velvet, Oliver HeldensGRiZ, and ZHU.


What's more, Imagine will curate an immersive aquatic theme, with 4 stages announced - Oceania, Amazonia, Aeria and Disco Inferno - and more still to come. Attendees will enter an aquatic wonderland chock full of aquatic creatures, dancers, cirque acts, art, workshops and the return of the Imagine pool. Not to mention, the theme will permeate the camping grounds of the festival too, creating an all-encompassing, 360-degree sensory experience that blends music, circus troupes, performers, dancers, art, workshops, classes and more.
