Midsummer Music Festival 

June 14-15, 2013 — Last weekend, Atlantans enjoyed the annual Midsummer Music and Food Festival, a free event in Candler Park. Friday evening brought a nice, mellow warm-up to Saturday's maximum-capacity crowd. Friday featured Neil Cribbs, Reynolds & Williams Band, and Coy Bowles of Zac Brown Band. Saturday's lineup included acoustic Webster Humpage, electro dance favorite Stokeswood, the down-home Southern style of Connor Christian & Southern Gothic, the alt bluegrass of the Whiskey Gentry, the horn-filled funk and soul of the Soul Rebels, and finished off the evening with the crowd-roaring favorite Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

The food was as plentiful and eclectic as the music. Packing in 25 of Atlanta's best food trucks, attendees sampled everything from gourmet mac & cheese and fries, Cajun, Vietnamese, Southern, Latin American cuisine, and vegetarian goodies. And they didn't forget desert favorites such as classic custard, cupcakes, kettle corn, and all-natural popsicles.

By the end of Saturday night, everyone's stomachs, souls, minds, and ears were well-nourished from a festival that won't soon be forgotten.
