The event was put on hold for a few years beginning in 2005, but was re-launched in 2011 and has been held at the city’s Piedmont Park every year since.“I’m very excited for Music Midtown this year,” Conlon said in a statement to go with Tuesday’s lineup announcement. “When Alex Cooley and I started the festival twenty-five years ago, our goal was to present a diverse group of the biggest names and rising stars in music. Music Midtown 2019 continues that tradition. We’re really looking forward to seeing Atlanta show up for another amazing weekend in Piedmont Park.”Music Midtown 2018 Recap[Video: Music Midtown]Tickets for the event go on sale starting Friday, May 17th, at 10 a.m. EST.
