It is time to pack our bags for another weekend full of dancing.

Shaky Beats Music Festival 2019.

This is a festival that I have wanted to attend for a few years now, but haven’t been able to make it happen. WE ARE IN IT TO WIN IT THIS YEAR.

The most exciting thing about it, it is in a city that I have never been to, Atlanta, Georgia.

Music. Food. Dancing. Good Vibes

That’s all you really need in life.

This Electronic Dance Music festival is located in Central Park, May 10th & 11th and will be holding some of the largest EDM acts. The ones I am most excited about are Lane 8, Chris Lake, and Ekali. These are 3 artists that I have been waiting patiently to see. All three of them have touched my heart each in a different way. I am also excited to see San Holo, What So Not, and Galantis. These three all put on such a good show and really know how to connect with their audience. If you haven’t seen any of these, don’t miss it and give yourself FOMO (fear of missing out).

I am super excited to see Zeke Beats again. We had the pleasure of interviewing him and he is just a really down to earth and genuine artist. He really cares about his music and doesn’t let the outside distractions take over. He was a really awesome guy and it really shows throughout his music. It will be fun to get to experience this again.

There will be photo booths and plenty of food to choose from.
That is one of my favorite things, jamming to my favorite music, dancing the weekend away, and eating lots of food truck food.

One thing that I am really excited about, I have been taking hip hop lessons and it will be really fun to just let loose, forget about the daily stressors, and being able to try out my new moves.

I encourage you to do the same. Forget about your bills, forget about your dirty house, forget about whatever it is in life that you are worried about, and JUST DANCE. Enjoy the music in a way that you have never done before. Get out there and make new friends. Step out of your comfort zone and allow it to be a weekend of self-love and growth. Music festivals are a way for you to connect with yourself, with earth, and with the ones around you. It is full of love and happiness. Take advantage and enjoy your time with the music.

Get your tickets before it sells out and I hope to see you there.
