10 Highlights Of Imagine Music Festival
Imagine Music Festival is fairytale land full of magical creatures, amazing music and breathtaking art. The production was flawless and the attendees brought the best vibes. It was truly a wonderful experience.
In 2014, the first Imagine took place at Atlanta's Historic Fourth Ward Park, Masquerade Music Park, breaking into the festival scene with an impressive lineup that only got better as the festival has grown.
Last year, the festival made its debut as a camping event at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Four years has given this festival time to grow and improve. Their were many highlights from our Imagine experience this weekend. Here are some of them.

1. Totems were full of originality and added creativity to the experience.
2. The speedway makes a great venue. There was minimal dust and no hills to walk up and down.
When you are walking around a festival for three days, hills can really wear you out and dust can make you sick. This weekend, we didn't have to worry about either of those. The stages weren't too far apart making it easy to get from one end of the festival to the other.
3. Camping offered free showers.
This is the only festival that I've seen free showers at. You're already spending money on the ticket, gas, camping, and food. The last thing you want someone to tell you is to pay up when all you want to do is get clean after a long night of raging.
4. The lineup was stellar and kept everyone dancing to music they love.
EDM had many different genres and style. Imagine curated a lineup that satisfied the bassheads, trance lovers, and house fanatics. Tiësto isn't someone we see in Atlanta very often. I've always been a fan of local support, and Imagine exceeded my expectations booking local artists.
5. Disco Inferno stage was breathtaking and added an extra spark to the experience.
Incendia puts on a blazing show with their flames, performers, and prime production. The stage was entertaining, and also had areas to sit, flow, and dance. The pyrotechnics are unlike any other production.
6. Music started later and ended later.
The days were not as hot as last year. It was much more bearable and the music started later in the day when it started to cool down. During the day, there was yoga and transformational workshops to keep you busy and in tune.
7. The food was delicious.
Imagine had many options for vegetarians. There were veggie sandwiches and multiple places that sold tasty sandwiches. Fruit smoothies were a great way to rehydrate, get some nutrients, and cool down a bit. The noodles seemed to be the hit of the weekend. If you wanted to get fancy, there were even lobster snacks.
8. Pretty Light's had everyone mesmerized.
It's in the name. This was a laser show from the heavens. It filled the sky with divine colors setting a psychedelic vibe. His downtempo tunes were funky, jazzy and even some hip-hop.
9. There were many improvements.
Last year's complaints were answered. This year there were more water stations, even better production, and it was held later in the year which resulted in perfect weather. There was golf cart transport at an affordable $5 per person, for festy goers who needed to take a break and catch a lift.
The only complaint this year was the long line at the entrance causing 2-3 hour delays to get inside on Saturday.
10. The experience
Imagine allows you to connect with your festival family to the most beautiful music giving us all the feels. The stages were spaced out enough where you could sit and chill with your squad and enjoy dancing together. There were so great squads there and so many new friends to be made.
