Brandi Carlile and Dierks Bentley to Headline Shaky Boots 2020

Southern country festival Shaky Boots is back—can we get a yee-haw? Returning to Atlanta after a five-year hiatus, the sibling to popular indie festival Shaky Knees will be popping off at Central Park May 8-9 next year.

Shaky Boots will feature over 20 bands across two stages with no overlapping sets. On Friday, Brandi Carlile (check out her 2012 Daytrotter session here), Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee John Prine, Alison Krauss, Gary Allan, Tanya Tucker and more take the stage. Dierks Bentley, Dwight Yoakam, Jamey Johnson, Morgan Wallen, Clint Black and many more will close out the festival on Saturday.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing back Shaky Boots Festival in 2020,” says Shaky Boots founder Tim Sweetwood. “I have always felt that Georgia needed a music festival that spans across the multiple genres embedded within Country music, and Shaky Boots aims to do just that. There will definitely be something for everyone.”

Two-day and one-day general admission, GA+, VIP and platinum tickets will go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here. Prices will increase closer to the festival.
