Shaky Knees and Shaky Beats music festivals will move to Central Park in 2018


After two years at Centennial Olympic Park, the Shaky Knees Music Festival will return to Central Park, where it was staged in 2015, next year.

The website for the fest pegs Shaky Knees 2018 for May 4-6.

While Shaky Knees concentrates on indie rock – headliners last year included LCD Soundsystem and Phoenix – its sister festival, Shaky Beats, spotlights electronica and dance acts with acts such as Kaskade and The Chainsmokers.

Shaky Beats will also move to Central Park and take place May 11-13.

Lineups for both are typically announced in January.
