Celebrating its fifth anniversary, Atlanta’s Imagine Festival unveils a lineup featuring Armin Van Buuren, Alesso, Galantis, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, and special guest Adventure Club.

Presented by Iris Presents and with four main stages plus other platforms to be announced, Imagine will occupy the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga., Sept. 21-23.  The camping and music fest will also welcome folks such as 12th Planet, Bear Grillz, Liquid Stranger, and Riot Ten to its Oceania Stage while the Amazonia Stage features GRiZ, ZHU, Cashmere Cat, Shpongle, and more.  Other stages include Disco Inferno and Aeria with the lineup growing even longer with acts like Green Velvet, Oliver Heldens, Paul Oakenfold, and DJ Dara among the acts performing.

“Topping the prior year’s lineup has undoubtedly become a bigger challenge this year,” Iris Presents founders Glenn and Madeleine Goodhand said in a statement.  “Through many special requests, our fans and the Imagine Family have helped to curate another dream lineup. Our fan support has been an integral part in this festival’s growth and we cannot wait to welcome you all back for our best year yet.”

“More” seems to be the operative word among the Goodhand family.  The May 8 announcement promises the 2018 edition of Imagine will have more camping, more entry and exit gates and more custom stage designs. 

Of course, Imagine is also known for being an “aquatic wonderland” and the Goodhands say “There will be no shortage of aquatic creatures, dancers, cirque acts, art, workshops, [and] the return of the Imagine pool.”

Tickets available now include three-day passes starting at $219 and three-day-plus-camping passes starting at $285.  VIP passes are available.
