It’s never too early to start looking ahead. While we just closed out the 2017 festival season, we’re already starting to plan for 2018. And trust us, it will be here sooner than we know it.

One festival that’s already on our radar for next year is Imagine. 2017 marked the fourth edition of the immersive aquatic fairytale and the second year the festival called Atlanta Motor Speedway home. For three days this past September, Imagine transformed the Speedway’s pavement into an all-encompassing, 360-degree sensory experience that blended some of the best electronic sets we had seen all summer, circus troupes, performers, dancers, and art.

Upon entering the venue, you were first met by the Disco Inferno Stage. Created by Incendia, the geodesic massive structure featured a spellbinding fire and flame effect that coincided with the music. This stage and the environment it produced not only was our favorite stage of the entire weekend, but many other attendees’ favorite as well.

The two largest stages, Oceania and Amazonia, were each housed on opposing end of the Speedway. At Oceania we indulged under Tiesto’s fireworks, got down to some Liquid Stranger, and basked in Sunday’s sunset during Illenium. It was at Amazonia where we celebrated some of the best festival sets we had seen all summer. From a throwback and hard hitting Pretty Lights set, to a funkin good time with The Floozies, to a Sunday Funday with STS9, Amazonia enthralled us all weekend.

This year proved that not only is Imagine (rightfully) the region’s largest independent EDM camping festival, but it just might be one of the best. While there may be a few more months until we get the 2018 lineup, you may want to jump on the special customer appreciation tickets while they’re still available – less than 12 hours remain on these prices. It is with certainty that Imagine will keep attracting some of the industry’s biggest talent, and with 2018 being the festival’s fifth anniversary you won’t want to miss out on what is to come.

It all started when a much younger Jackie dove into her parents’ record collection, grabbed that trippy Magical Mystery Tour album, and played “Strawberry Fields” over and over again until it was engrained into her soul. She grew up on the dreams and stories of Simon and Garfunkel, “Bleeker Street” being one of her favorites, the seduction of The Doors, Van Morrison, because “Brown Eyed Girl” is definitely her song, and the likes of Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Jimi Hendrix…you get the picture. It may not show on the outside, but Jackie has a hippie heart, and that reflects in her musical tastes today. While some of her favorites may or may not be jam bands, her taste in music feeds into many genres. From alternative, Brit, and indie rock - OK, maybe all rock - to pop, to rap, to electronic, she loves it all. As a northerner, she thought she would never understand country until she found herself on a Georgia farm in cowboy boots watching Luke Bryan shake it for her- yeah, she got that. She is a chronic wanderluster, she doesn't believe in guilty pleasures, enjoys a great Moscow Mule, and is an absolute music festival fanatic- you’ll find her wherever the music takes her.
