Cost: $160-$1,250
When you love yourself, anything becomes possible. Channeling boundless self-confidence through a downright earth-quaking voice, colorful persona, and undeniable star power, Lizzo struts into the spotlight and steps up with a whole lot of sass, spirit, and soul. Embracing her vocal range like never before and celebrating herself to the fullest, she speaks her mind, censors nothing, and delivers an enviable level of honesty, pure passion, and fresh fire. In doing so, she reaches the precipice of a personal and creative breakthrough in 2019 as evidenced by a string of new releases for Nice Life Recording Company and Atlantic Records. "This is a way more confident Lizzo who believes in her confidence," she exclaims. "For the last three years, I've been working on myself and learning how to love who I am. There were moments that would've completely defeated me when I was younger. Instead, I was able to not just survive, but thrive. This is the person who I truly want to be. It's a self-filling prophecy ready for the world. I really found my voice. I love it. I love my body. I love talking shit, and it's what I'm doing," she laughs. She's quietly worked towards these realizations since the release of her 2016 EP, Coconut Oil, which delivered such hits as "Good As Hell," "Phone," "Water Me," and "Truth Hurts." Building on enthusiastic critical acclaim and a rapidly growing fan base, 2018 represented a high watermark for the Detroit-born and Houston-raised songstress. A string of singles hit maximum velocity as "Boys" took the culture by storm. A definitive and inescapable anthem for 2018, it closed out the year on Time's "10 Best Songs of 2018," Pitchfork's "100 Best Songs of 2018," and Paste's "50 Best Songs of 2018." She introduced this chapter with the 2019 single "Juice." Eighties-style synths slink hand-in-hand with a steady beat before climaxing on funky guitar and boisterous horns. Touting the hummable hook, "Blame it on my juice," she turns up with an empowering call-to-arms. "I didn't really have song talking the way I talked," she goes on. "This gave me the opportunity to talk the talk and celebrate my swag and all of the hard work I've done to get here. It's a timestamp of where I am in my life right now. I'm enjoying myself on 'Juice.'" In the end, Lizzo's message of empowerment and love rings true because it comes straight from the heart. "When you listen to this, I want you to know you're not alone," she leaves off. "I want you to hear my songs and feel a connection to me. I hope you can apply what I'm saying to your own life and maybe have a better day. Share this experience with me. Celebrate who you are. If I can change the world for the better one song at a time, I'm cool."

  string(1001) "With its initial run from 1994 to 2005, Music Midtown earned a reputation as Atlanta’s definitive large music festival. After a six-year hiatus, promoter Peter Conlon’s massive music machine has been on a steady run to reach cruising altitude, growing heftier with each successive year. In 2018, Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Imagine Dragons, and Fall Out Boy got top billing on a lineup featuring performances by Gucci Mane, Janelle Monáe, Khalid, Mattiel, and dozens of other established and rising mainstream musical acts. Sign up online and be the first to know about this year’s lineup, schedule, and contests. The festivities unfold in the heart of Piedmont Park. PRO TIP: It’s an urban festival, so take advantage of the transportation systems the city has to offer. Take a ride on the MARTA train, or go for a stroll on the Beltline. Avoiding the nightmare traffic situation that backs up at the intersection of 10th and Monroe will improve anyone and everyone’s festival experience."
