After two years of waiting, Imagine Music Festival fans will return to Georgia for three days of aquatic fairytale magic next month, this time at its brand new venue, Bouckaert Farm in the City of Chattahoochee Hills.
Imagine began at Historic Fourth Ward Park & The Masquerade Music Park in Atlanta proper in 2014 then made the Atlanta Motor Speedway its home in 2016, where it would remain for the next four years.
It was in 2017 that I first entered the gates of the Atlanta Motor Speedway for three days that would change my life more than I ever thought possible. Every year since, I have made the pilgrimage back to Imagine to give thanks for the music, the people, and the magic that this festival gave me.
This year I get to pay this life-changing experience forward, bringing a first-time festival-goer to Bouckaert Farm, ushering her over the threshold that will leave her forever changed.
For three days, festival goers will get to leave the regular world behind at a time when chaos and turmoil have overtaken almost every aspect of life. We get to come home to a place where there are no worries—only love, friendship, and the music that unites us all. We get to forget everything we’ve been through over the last year and a half and lose ourselves in the ecstasy of the dance.
Artists like Kaskade, Illenium, Excision, Gryffin, and Clozee will be our guides, curriating our aquatic fantasy as we ebb and flow to the rhythm of their music.
Here are the Day by Day!

“The excitement we feel as it nears the time to welcome fans onsite is only be matched by the artists who have not been able to perform and have new music to showcase regularly,”
“We cannot think of a better venue to welcome fans back to music than Imagine.”
