Moonshine Music & Arts Festival: An Intimate Southern Gem

Moonshine Music & Arts Festival: An Intimate Southern Gem

Written by Patrick Toney

There really isn’t a feeling quite like when you take those first few steps through the door, after being out in the blistering summer heat, and it hits you… Air conditioning.

I’m sure I wasn’t the only festival goer this past weekend at Moonshine that shared the same sentiment. Despite the insufferable Atlanta heat, Moonshine attendees cultivated an unforgettable weekend of good vibes and music.


As Friday afternoon rolled around and the stormy skies parted, the Lanier Raceplex campgrounds came to life as it filled with tents and eager music lovers. Highlighting the sounds of Friday night would definitely begin with Tennessee native and Atlanta favorite Wick-it The Instigator. Always bringing an eclectic mix of heavy dubstep sprinkled with an array of genre-hopping favorites. Closing out the night with the pyromaniacs at the Incendia stage, Levitation Jones unearthed some straight evil bass from below.

With a full day of music and not a cloud in the sky, many attendees who weren’t willing to face the elements Friday made their way to the grounds as Saturday’s stacked line-up was underway. Something that really stood out this year were the campgrounds. With a heatwave rolling in, Georgia’s love for trees made the campgrounds a safe haven throughout the day as much of the grounds were shaded. Though the stages didn’t have many smiling faces rail riding during the day, everyone could still enjoy the music as the layout made the campgrounds seem like box seats not too far from the stages. The performers didn’t let it slow down the energy either, An-ten-nae graced the airwaves with a set of all original music. Grateful to everyone sweatin’ it out during his set, An-ten-nae, as always, gave 100% of his energy along with his music.


Back at the Incendia stage, just after his memorable set at Tipper and Friends, Bogtrotter brought the swamp from Suwanee in Bass form. The party took a quick pause as some hard rains decided to fall late afternoon, cooling things off for an evening of killer artists. Closing down the Wind Stage, Barely Alive brought an onslaught of heavy robotic bass. I’m pretty sure some of the crowd left just like that: barely alive. One of the most anticipated artists of the weekend, Beats Antique, left a memorable mark on mainstage for what looked like the biggest crowd of the weekend. Gypsy bass and theatrics to match, the show was not to be missed.
