Music Midtown is an annual music festival held in Atlanta, Georgia. The first festival was held in 1994 and the original run continued till 2005. However, the event was halted between 2006 and 2010 and it returned in 2011 as a one-day event as opposed to a whole weekend event in its original run.

The event saw its second halt in 2022 after the organizers were not allowed to restrict firearms on the venue due to Atlanta law as the festival was held in a public park. However, the event has returned once again in 2023 and it will be held between September 15 to September 17.

Artists including Bob Dylan, Erykah Badu, Dua Lipa, and many others have performed at the festival in the past. The 2023 lineup is not shabby as well with multiple renowned singers and bands performing live for the audience.

Music Midtown Stage Map And Location

Music Midtown festival has four stages namely Roxy, Venmo, Cotton Club, and Great Southeast Hall. Music Midtown is held at Piedmont Park in Atlanta.

Entire Piedmont Park will be covered by the amenities and stages for the festival and will feature four entrances and four exits for the visitors. Attendees will have the 12th Street gate, Charles Allen Gate (VIP only), 10th Street Gate, and Bridge Lake Gate available for entry and exit.

While entering from the 12th Street gate, visitors will first come across the Roxy Stage and Cotton Club Stage near the Roxy Stage. The festival-goers must travel to the other side of the park to get to Venmo Stage and Great Southeast Music Hall.

Great Southeast Music Hall is by the Bridge Lake Gate and the Venmo stage will be the shortest from 10th street gate and Charles Allen Gate. Although the 2023 map is not out yet, here is one from the previous year which is unlikely to change this year as well.
