Music festival in Atlanta canceled due to weather concerns

The annual festival, which was also canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, features multiple stages hosting the world’s top electronic musicians, DJs and bands.

ATLANTA — A large three-day music festival in Atlanta has been canceled, organizers announced Wednesday, citing weather concerns.

Imagine Music Festival, which attracts EDM (electronic dance music) artists from around the globe, was expected to draw thousands this weekend on a plot of land in Chattahoochee Hills. 

In a statement on social media, they said "mother nature leaves us no option."

They added that their public safety team and local authorities determined it was best to cancel the event due to weather concerns.

11Alive StormTrackers said rain is in the forecast for the weekend, but nothing severe is expected at this time.

According to its website, Imagine Music Festival was recently voted a "Top 30 festival in the world" by Fest300 and "Top Ten Emerging Music Festivals" by USA Today. 

The annual festival, which was also canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, features multiple stages hosting the world’s top electronic musicians, DJs, and bands.

Camping was being offered on-site for ticket holders.

Another music festival, Music Midtown, is happening this weekend at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. Organizers say they are monitoring conditions.

"Safety is our #1 priority," they said on social media. "We're monitoring this weekend's weather closely and currently all activities are going on as scheduled."
