ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Thousands made their way to Atlanta for Music Midtown, despite a surge in COVID-19 cases.

The annual music festival started Saturday and is expected to be a chart-topping weekend for many businesses in Midtown. 

While this year's event came with changes because of COVD-19, music lovers were still excited to attend Music Midtown.

Thousands gathered in Piedmont Park to hear 30 plus artists perform.

Music Midtown has been a staple in Atlanta for more than 20 years.

Because of COVID-19, attendees had to be either vaccinated or show proof of a negative test and those who weren't vaccinated were required to wear a mask.

Attendees told CBS46 that it was worth it.
