ATLANTA (AP) - Sam Smith and Lenny Kravitz are expected to hit the stage on the second day of Music Midtown festival.

Both Smith and Kravitz are some of the top acts to perform along with Van Halen and Bill Idol on Saturday at the Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta. Drake, Elton John, August Alsina, and Hozier performed Friday.

When doors were opened Friday afternoon, many flocked into the park. Performances will take place on four different stages.

The festival sold out last year, drawing more than 150,000 people.

Since the festival’s return, Coldplay, Pearl Jam, T.I., Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragon, Red Hot Chili Peppers, 2 Chainz and Journey have performed.

This is the fifth straight year Music Midtown will be held after a five-year break. The festival was founded in 1994.
