Shaky Knees

Sophomore music festival proves overwhelming success

After premiering in 2013 at Masquerade Music Park, Shaky Knees returned in 2014 with a new and bigger location at Atlantic Station and another well-curated lineup of artists. Though rain has been a factor both years, it doesn’t seem to dampen the enthusiasm of the fans for the outdoor event. Headliners in 2014 included Modest Mouse, The National, Alabama Shakes, The Replacement, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and over 50 more mostly┬árock and indie acts.
