Atlanta's 3 day music festival
again a stormy opening night for the 10th Anniversary of Music Midtown.
Even Mother Nature canít stay away from this incredible weekend of
music, food and local artists. It didnít seem to hinder the Festival
goerís enthusiasm much, in fact, many seemed to be enjoy the free light
show, it wasnít laser lights and Pink Floyd but the lightning bolts did
illuminate the Atlanta sky as if it was choreographed.
festival promoters responsibly halted the event shortly after 8:15 pm,
when the lightning became more frequent and the rain didnít let up. The
crowds at various stages tried to find cover, which was hard to come by.
Creativity overcame the weather and people started using garbage bags,
banners and tree branches as cover. In fact, most of the attendees
didn't seem to mind the storm at all, some were downright enjoying it.
There was a Woodstock feel to it all.
The newest stage at Music Midtown,
95.5 The Beat's DJ Stage, which featured DJ's spinning records live, was
not a hit Friday night, and it will be interesting to see if it gains
attendance over the rest of the weekend. Also, not too many folks were
visiting the booths at Non Profit Row, which featured local activist and
Crowds were estimated at 60,000
before the storm moved through, and when the festival started back up
around 9:30 pm, there were significantly less people, however, that
meant diehard fans had the chance to be front and center for their
favorite acts. And after all, that is what Music Midtown is all about.
