With Atlanta's midtown skyline in the background and the greenery of the city's Piedmont Park underfoot, the annual Music Midtown Festival provided one of the best environments of all the nation's summertime festivals. Not to mention a killer lineup that included Drake, Elton John, Van Halen, Run the Jewels and Sam Smith.
