As Summer 2019 approaches, so do countless concerts and shows happening right in Atlanta. From musical throwbacks to up-and-coming artists, punk rock to country music, and small concerts to huge festivals, a wide variety of music is available to concert-goers this summer.

This year, most concerts and festivals are being held in the new Coca Cola Roxy Theatre, State Farm Arena, Cellairis Ampitheatre, Sun Trust Park, Chastain, Infinite Energy, in parks around the ATL, and more. Some people will attend a specific concert solely for location purposes.

Coachella in Palm Springs, Californiawas the festival that really kicked off the start of the summer concerts. Most festivals are outdoor venues due to the access of food and shopping throughout the day.
