Five bands for $40! Seems too good to be true, right? It doesn’t have to be this weekend at Centennial Olympic Park for Rival Entertainment’s Annual “Party in the Park.” Local act Stokeswood gets the party started at 3:15. Stokeswood’s last show was at Counterpoint where they rocked the festival grounds. Don’t miss their set full of “Low-Endie” rock, a term coined by the band to describe their style which you’ll have to see to understand.
We asked Courtney Okst, a student at Kennesaw State, who attended Party in the Park last year what she thought of the previous year’s event, “I remember sitting on my friend’s shoulders during Ellie Goulding and looking out over the crowd and up at the stage, everyone was so excited and pumped. There was a smile on everyone’s face. People were dancing and singing together, even with people they didn’t know. It was everyone coming together to listen to some great music.”
The rest of the day’s lineup is comprised of Minus the Bear, an indie rock band from Seattle, The Joy Formidable, MGMT and famed DJ, Girl Talk, will close out the evening. Get your tickets now before prices go up on the day of the event. You can bring in a backpack, towel/blanket and collapsible chair. We recommend taking MARTA because parking downtown is a nightmare. Plus, it’s safer to ride than drive after a day of drinking. Party hard and party safe, we’ll see you there kids!
