Shaky Knees releases lineup by day, adds new bands for 3-day fest in Atl

We’re planning to have coverage of Shaky Knees Festival again this year. Last year’s 3-day spring festival in Atlanta’s Central Park featured a stunningly good lineup, good sound and lighting, and a lovely layout.

This May, Shaky Knees will be moving to Centennial Park downtown. The festival has also announced some new additions to the schedule — Slowdive, Deer Tick, LANY, Craig Finn, and The Japanese House — and earlier this morning released the schedule by day. Take a look:

Shaky Knees bands by day

Speaking just for myself, obviously, I think all three days look great, but if I had to choose just one day, I’d likely pick Sunday. (I mean, Florence + The Machine, Deftones, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Eagles of Death Metal, Houndmouth, Murder By Death, Noah Gunderson, Adia Victoria …) Baroness, who were born here in Savannah, will be in Friday’s lineup, while Kylesa, which had been previously announced for the lineup, seems to have dropped out of the festival.
