2018 Shaky Knees Festival to Feature Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age, Reunited Distillers + More
The 2018 edition of the Shaky Knees festival may rock a little harder this year. Event organizers have announced their lineup for the sixth edition of the festival, with Jack White and Queens of the Stone Age giving rock a boost as two of the three headliners, with alt-rock favorites The National being the third.
The music weekend takes place May 4-6 at Atlanta's Central Park and the eclectic bill features significantly more hard rock leaning acts than some of the other recently announced festival bills. After teasing fans that a reunion was afoot, The Distillers will make their first festival appearance after a 12-year layoff. Tenacious D will be on hand to bring their comedic rock stylings to the stage. And you'll find red hot upstarts Greta Van Fleet, the hard partying Andrew WK, the raucous Rival Sons and veteran rockers Circa Survive as part of the bill.
The lineup also includes David Byrne, Grammy-nominated rockers The War on Drugs, indie favorites Fleet Foxes, Cake, Matt and Kim, Franz Ferdinand, Courtney Barnett, Vance Joy, Manchester Orchestra, Japandroids, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Lord Huron, Black Angels, Alvvays, Parquet Courts and a wealth of others. See the full lineup on the concert poster below.
General admission, VIP and Platinum 3-day ticketing will start tomorrow (Jan. 9) at 10AM ET). For additional festival details and ticketing info, head on over to the festival site, and keep in mind that prices for the event will increase the closer it is to the actual festival.
