Idlewild South Weekend Warm-Up ft. Dropping the Needle: Shaky Knees Music Festival

It's finally here!! The weekend we've all been waiting for in Atlanta....The inaugural Shaky Knees Music Festival. This two-day, three-stage, 28-band festival is a huge first for Atlanta; the lineup is incredible and stages are set for some seriously amazing music. I'm particularly excited to see Gary Clark Jr., Shovels & Rope, Delta Spirit, Drive By Truckers and Jim James, but honestly each of these shows offers something I want to experience!

"Shaky Knees‘ inaugural lineup will feature headliners The Lumineers and Band of Horses as well as Jim James, Drive By Truckers, Gary Clark Jr., Lucero, Dr. Dog, Delta Spirit, The Antlers, Kurt Vile & The Violators, The Black Angels, The Joy Formidable, Heartless Bastards, Oberhofer, Frontier Ruckus, Murder By Death, Shovels & Rope, Moon Taxi, GOAT, Hanni El Khatib, The Orwells, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Vintage Trouble, Robert Ellis, You Me & Apollo, Roadkill Ghost Choir, T. Hardy Morris and Death On Two Wheels."

WHAT: Shaky Knees Music Festival 
WHEN: Saturday, May 4 from noon - 10 p.m.; Sunday, May 5 from noon - 10 p.m.
WHERE: Old 4thWard (Masquerade Music Park Stage, O4W Park Stage, North Ave. Stage)

While this will be a far cry from the recent Coachella, I'm hoping we can really bring out the style for this fest, Atlanta. Some mix of Coachella's California-cool with a splash of Glastonbury's Brit-grunge-chic? C'mon girls (and guys), we can do this. Here's a little photo inspiration to help...I'm going for some sort of combo of the following looks.

Then keep scrolling down, because to help us all figure out what the *$&# to wear to this shindig, I'm bringing Molly Free of Dropping the Needle back onstage for another installment of the Music Festival Series on Idlewild South. Take it away ma'am!

continuing on with my excitement for this weekend’s shaky knees festival, it is only right that today’s what the !@$# do i wear wednesday be all about the fashion you will see this weekend!

now the weather is supposed to be iffy, rain no rain? muggy? it is also going to be outside in a park so plan on getting a bit dirty and bring something to sit on or shield you from some sprinkles.

bandeaus are a key piece for summer time and great for layering under tanks or pairing with some high waisted shorts. bring a light military jacket to dual as a cover for your head should it sprinkle some. sneakers will keep you comfy and from hurting your toes in case you get stepped on.

overalls are making a HUGE comeback, i am seeing them everywhere. love these in an acid wash print. throw on a bandeau underneath and keep a light long-sleeve top for when the sun goes down. these leather booties will be comfy and keep your feet dry.

accessories such as a hat, over-sized glasses, and a fanny pack are all necessities. bring a blanket to spread out with your friends.

what do you think you guys are going to wear?!
