"Tomorrowland is probably the most popular electronic music festival in the world to date," said project director Shawn Kent.

And it appears that Fairburn, Ga. in South Fulton County will now play center stage to was has been built as one of the largest music festivals in the entire world.

We caught up with Kent just outside of Atlanta.

"We are bringing in probably over 80 different nationalities from around the world," said Kent. "We have an incredible line up of over 300 artists."

Construction will soon be underway here on the grounds to make way for what promises to be a spectacular show.

"Seven unique different stages, different designs," said Kent. "One of our trademarks is incredible design and production and theatrical values."

The event will also feature the Dreamville camping area with 30 thousand campers planning to hang over a five day period leading up to, during and after the event.
So, how in the world did South Fulton County land perhaps the biggest electronic beats fest?

"We had about a year of searching the world for the perfect location and the perfect country," said Kent.

"We ended up here in the U.S. In the Atlanta region - specifically for this venue," said Kent. "This is probably one of the most beautiful locations we've found."

As for the neighbors who live in the area...

"Well, there's always a little element of fear, like oh my gosh what's coming," said Barbara de Courcy. "But so far the reaction has been positive."

The show kicks off the weekend of September 27th to 29th.
