Summer in the city can be a brutal affair, especially in the South. It can get so hot, no one wants to venture out of the house during the day. But when it comes to music, Atlanta's particularly blessed with a smattering of luring outdoor venues from Lakewood Amphitheatre to the Masquerade Music Park, the Botanical Garden all the way on up to Chastain Park. There's no better way to beat the... | more...

Best of Atlanta Concerts

Best Concert Venue
16 ROCK OF AGES National Tour   Jeremy Daniel, 2018

We've had a number of favorites over the years for Best Concert Venue. This year we chose a Best Small Venue and a Best Large Venue.

As far as small venues go, Aisle 5 takes the cake. There's a certain magic the Little 5 Points club possesses, one that's slightly creepy while simultaneously comforting. There's no telling what you're walking into at Aisle 5. Sometimes it's a local band and other days it's an EDM show. But one thing's for sure: You're in for a good time. Bartenders are quick and friendly, ticket prices are within range for us average folks, and though the crowd is a mixed bag, it's always full of good people.

For Large venues, the Fox Theatre is looking as fine as it has in a long time. With new touches including a swank new Marquee Club and a lot of polish on Atlanta's most famous venue, how can you go wrong?

Best Concert of the Past Year


Atlanta has seen its share of great concerts in the past as evidence by the list below. David Byrne rolled into town for the 2018 Shaky Knees festival for the weekend May 3-5th and smoked it.

Best Parking at a Concert Venue
21a31 Terminal West Magnum
As part of the King Plow Arts Center, Terminal West has become the Westside’s premier live music venue, giving equal stage time to hip-hop, indie rock, EDM, pop music, and singer-songwriter fare. With its location, it is pretty easy to get in and out of the show without driving around and around seeking a spot.

Best Concert Venue Food
21a31 Terminal West Magnum
With our 2018 issue, we weighed in on the best concert venue food. The winner, Terminal West, takes pride in its food. Check out the lunch and dinner menu at the venue’s Stationside restaurant next door for plenty of fodder for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

Best Outdoor Music Venue for Concerts
The relatively roomy, food friendly natural amphitheater at Chastain feels like a walk in the park ... which it sort of is. Of course if it rains like it did for the majority of the Brian Wilson show, everybody gets wet, and those hard metal seats make life, errr, challenging during lightening storms. But on those nights when the moon is out, the music, not to mention the wine, is flowing, and the candles are flickering, Chastain earns its reputation as the quintessential open-air Atlanta summer concert venue.
