Music Midtown is an annual festival that features mainstream as well as alternative rock. Some hip hop artists are also featured. The event has a distinguished history--from 1994 to 2005 Midtown was a staple of the Atlanta festival season, with attendance in its best years rising up to 300,000. The 2011 edition, the first after a six-year break, was much smaller in scale, but still successful. The event is growing, so its achievements might yet be repeated.
