Also lining up to perform at the September 21 and 22 festival are Ludacris, T.I., Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Florence and the Machine, Girl Talk and many more.



This year's Music Midtown festival in Atlanta will feature performances by such rock bands as Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam. On Tuesday, April 24, the festival's organizers confirmed that the two veteran groups are all set to headline the upcoming 2-day concert to be held at Piedmont Park, Atlanta on September 21 and 22.

The Dave Grohl-fronted band will perform on day one, when such artists as Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, T.I., The Avett Brothers and Van Hunt also took the stage. The Eddie Vedder-fronted group will show up the following day during which Ludacris, Florence and the Machine, Girl Talk, Civil Twilight, L.P. and O'Brother are also lined up.

Speaking about this year's lineup, president of Live Nation Atlanta Peter Conlon told Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "The thing we didn't have time to do last year was [work on] diversification. This year we have a very diverse lineup." He added, "I also wanted an Atlanta feel because this is an Atlanta festival."

The 2012 Music Midtown marks the festival's second straight year after a five-year break. Last year, the festival was headlined by Coldplay and The Black Keys. Tickets for this year's gig will be available for purchase on April 28, starting at $100 for a two-day festival pass.
