IMAGINE FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES AN OTHER WORLDLY PHASE 1 LINEUP

Following the announcement of a new venue in Kingston Downs, a new theme with ‘A New World’, and a new venture in the release of Chapter 01 of its graphic novel, “Tears of a Fallen Star,”… the next chapter of Imagine Music Festival will see something that has become quite familiar throughout its history- a massive lineup. Taking place September 16 – 18, 2022, a quick glance at the festival line card shows a veritable who’s who in the electronic dance music world, including world-class headliners, stage takeovers, b2b sets, a set of day club pool parties, and more. 

Brassica, in the Waldorf Astoria Buckhead

Marble and brass extend out from the warm wood bar, dotted with happy hour patrons enjoying fancy drinks and small bites. To the side the dining room is packed with warm leather booths juxtaposed to the orange and blue ornate plates and the slats in the wall that peer into the hall next to the restaurant. On the back end, the décor changes to a modern black with white tables and dark napkins. This beautiful spot is Brassica, the opulent French-Inspired Southern fare restaurant nestled in the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria Buckhead. They put just the right spin on traditional French and southern dishes, while offering upscale cocktails and an extensive wine list.

THE CANDLER HOTEL, ATLANTA

The opulent, white marble ascends into the Atlanta skyline and stands in juxtaposition from the beautiful blue of the daytime sky. There’s a quintessential permanent red carpet with the nicest doorman that opens the heavy, brass doors into the striking lobby. Straight ahead is a bank of brass, original elevators that have a sign above them that says, “next car.” You can lounge on the circular sofa and watch the people come and go from the elevators or stare in awe at the large, sweeping marble staircase where you’re greeted with a marble lion and paired with one of the most beautiful chandeliers in all of Atlanta. Welcome to the beautiful, Candler Hotel.
