In addition, alt-rock superstars like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Portugal. The Man, Of Monsters & Men, Liam Gallagher and Brittany Howard will also take the stage over the weekend.

“I am really excited to bring our fans a lineup that continues to celebrate both up and coming acts and established powerhouses like the return of headliner The Strokes and first-time headliners The Black Keys and The Smashing Pumpkins. To be able to produce a world-class festival in my hometown of Atlanta year after year is truly special,” says Shaky Knees founder, Tim Sweetwood.
