Imagine Music Festival Returns With a Splash

After taking two years off due to COVID-19 (2020) and horrible weather conditions (2021), Imagine Music Festival announced that it is back and ready to conquer 2022.

Imagine is set to launch the next chapter of the festival, “A New World” and expects to bring nothing less than the aquatic dream everyone knows and loves. Being one of the Southeast’s largest dance festivals, it is no surprise that the lineup is out of this world. The festival will take place September 15-18 at a glorious new location. Not only will major headliners such as Excision, Kaskade, and GRiZ be taking the stage, the festival will also be accompanied by takeovers from labels including Mau5trap, Wakaan, and Ophelia.

Originating at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, the festival is testing out a new location this year at Kingston Downs in Georgia. The property is family-owned and sprawls out over 5,000+ acres right outside of Rome, GA. The new location will provide new experiences such as lazy river tubing, new stage designs, expanded campgrounds, massive pool designs, the Aqua Day Club, and so much more. While there are plenty of new experiences to add to the weekend, the great music and amazing vibes will continue to be a constant for guests this year. 

“We are excited to share that Imagine Music Festival is moving to a brand new location for the 2022 edition,” says Imagine Festival co-founders Maddy and Glenn Goodhand. “The new site encompasses all the beauty of nature with sprawling grass fields and pastures, rolling hills, and untouched woodlands, and we cannot think of a better venue to welcome fans back to music than Imagine.” 

In addition to multiple jaw-dropping headliners, Imagine’s 2022 lineup is stacked to the brim with notably-billed artists of all kinds, including special guest ZHU. The festival will host the Ophelia Records Pre-Party featuring Seven Lions, pool parties with Kaskade and Adventure Club, underground artists of many subgenres, and rare back-to-back sets that attendees are not going to want to miss. The ultimate B2B list for the weekend includes: 

  • Boogie T B2B Dirt Monkey
  • Borgore B2B Riot Ten
  • Ghostrydr (Ghastly B2B Joyryde)
  • Virtual Riot B2B Barely Alive
  • Black Carl! B2B Saka
  • Brondo B2B Lick
  • Champagne Drip B2B Luzcid
  • Gettoblaster B2B Franklyn Watts
  • Reaper B2B Kumarion

Attendees can expect “A New World” of an experience in September, that will enable like-minded festival-goers to come together and create lifelong memories that leave them coming back every year for more.
