    Shaky Knees Festival, the annual music event that happens in Atlanta, has just announced it's 2017 lineup. This year, the festival runs May 12th to May 14th. The xx, LCD Soundsystem and Phoenix are headlining, and this year the curators have done an excellent job of mixing big bands, legacy artists, and cool smaller indie rock outfits.

    It seems as if 2017 will be a classic year for music festivals in America, with Panorama, Coachella, and Governor's Ball already unveiling massive bills for the summer festival season. Shaky Knees appears to be representing the South to full effect.

    Following the cancellation of LCD Soundsystem tour dates, when James Murphy and co had to quickly finish their new record, having signed a major label record deal, it seems as if there are good things afoot for the band. Fans are now speculating that the new material could drop before Shaky Knees Festival in May. This would be the band's first album since 2010's "This Is Happening."

    Meanwhile, it appears as if The xx are gearing up for a big year ahead of the release of "I See You", their brilliant new album, and Phoenix are teasing their return - having announced a number of U.S and European festivals — and are expected to drop the follow-up to 2013's much-loved album "Bankrupt".
