On September 15, 16, and 17, 2023, Music Midtown will be in Piedmont Park, and the following streets will have traffic barricades placed there to limit vehicle traffic to Resident Access Only:
Neighbors with vehicles that need to navigate Resident Access Only streets on September 15 – 17, 2023 may obtain vehicle Dash Passes from the community post at 12th and Piedmont (formerly Skate Escape, currently Cherry Street Energy) between September 13 – 15, 2023 during Dash Pass Distribution hours listed below. The physical address of the pickup location is 1086 Piedmont Avenue.
Dash Passes visually enable more efficient communication to officers posted at traffic barricades that the vehicle is attributed to a local address, rather than an event patron or general traffic.
Dash Passes do not provide parking on Resident Access Only streets. All standard and posted parking laws still apply on the other side of the traffic barricades.
Note: during special events, illegal parking fines may increase significantly for parking in a posted residential parking area without a city-issued residential parking permit.
Proof of residency is required to obtain Dash Passes for Resident Access Only streets: (1) a valid ID, and (2) most recent utility bill OR a recent lease agreement.
Dash Pass Distribution @ 12th and Piedmont (formerly Skate Escape, currently Cherry Street Energy; 1086 Piedmont Ave.)
Impacted neighbors who are unable to obtain a vehicle dash pass during Dash Pass Distribution should not contact Cherry Street Energy nor the Music Midtown Box Office.
Should there be a large accumulation of attendee-related trash on your property (keep in mind most of the clean-up occurs overnight and in the morning each event day), please submit a Community Support Ticket online to report the exact location of the debris. [SUBMIT SUPPORT TICKET HERE]
The clean up crew will begin working each day of the event from the outside (in the neighborhood) to the inside (within the park). Clean up crews may be cleaning in the streets overnight until roughly 3am, returning at daylight for anything previously unseen.
Music Midtown is placing portable toilets outside of the gated festival area. Public portable toilets will be placed at the Midtown and Arts Center MARTA Stations, and Charles Allen Drive on the Midtown High School side of the street, and Monroe Drive near the Stadium ticket booths.
Please submit tickets with general feedback and for support requests here.
A team member will respond accordingly as soon as possible.
Note that all submissions are automatically shared with the NPU-E Chair for visibility, and are anonymously discussed in the post-festival debrief with representatives from the Music Midtown production teams, Department of Parks, Midtown Neighbors Association, NPU-E, and NPU-F.
All emergencies should be reported to 911.
