 The first round of performers for this year’s Imagine Music Festival immediately impressed when they were announced in April: Above & Beyond, Deadmau5, Tiesto, Pretty Lights Live and Gorgon City among them.

The acts will perform across six stages at the music and camping festival, Sept. 22-24 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Heading into its fourth year, the EDM-centric gathering will also spotlight Ciszak; Dateless; Hippie Sabotage; and The Funk Hunters as well as local talent including Alex Lucas; Bandikook; Blunts & Blondes; Corey Von Waters; Daddydough; Daniels Jack; Deep Technicians; Devious; Domii; Exit 9 and many more.

Festival founders Glenn and Madeleine Goodhand of Iris Presents are dedicated to improving upon last year’s festival and used customer survey results to implement changes – such as increased water stations, better signage and an app – for this year’s edition.

Tickets for the 18 and older event are $163 for a three-day general admission pass. A VIP pass, which includes front row pit access, access to air-conditioned chill lounges and bathrooms, cocktail and bottle service, private security and meet and greets with some of the artists is $299 for a three-day pass. Camping passes are also available as an add-on with prices starting at $99.
