Tickets on sale Dec 11th

Making its grand return to downtown Atlanta since 2015, Shaky Boots Festival will take place at Central Park, May 8-9, 2020. A southern country festival true to its roots with a modern edge, Shaky Boots will feature over 20 bands across two stages with no overlapping sets. On Friday, Brandi Carlile, John Prine, Alison Krauss, Gary Allan, Tanya Tucker and more take the stage, while Dierks Bentley, Dwight Yoakam, Jamey Johnson, Morgan Wallen, Clint Black and more will close out the festival on Saturday.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing back Shaky Boots Festival in 2020. I have always felt that Georgia needed a music festival that spans across the multiple genres embedded within Country music, and Shaky Boots aims to do just that. There will definitely be something for everyone,” says Shaky Boots founder, Tim Sweetwood.

In addition to two full days of music, fans can expect food options from the region with local Atlanta flavor as well as interactive on-site activities to explore in between sets from your favorite artists. Fans may also bring festival-compliant chairs to sit back, relax, and enjoy the music in a designated chair zone.
