Atlanta concerts are especially fun when the weather is gorgeous and your favorite band is playing.

If you’re looking for the latest schedule, you’ll need to get familiar with the amazing venues scattered throughout the city. While there are tons of great places to catch a show, the Chastain Park Amphitheatre and the Tabernacle in Atlanta are a couple of great places to check out first.

Simply put, the Chastain Park Amphitheater is a treasured tradition in Atlanta. The historic North Fulton Park amphitheater first started making waves in the city back in 1944.

Although it first featured the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the amphitheater has since grown to host an enormous variety of artistic performances.

The month of July kicks off with a one-night performance by Maxwell on July 6th. Enjoy some old school soul music, featuring The Stylistics, The Manhattans, Heatwave, and Peaches & Herb at the Soul Summer Jam, which has tickets for terrace tables, box seats, and terrace seats.

You can see Anita Baker, perform live, at the Chastain Park Amphitheater, as well as Heads of State and Yacht Rock Revue.

Next, head on over to the Tabernacle in Atlanta for some more great summer concerts. Although the building has existed since 1910, it’s gone through a lot of transitions over the years. Fortunately, it houses some of the hottest musical acts around, these days.

The Tabernacle kicks off the 4th of July holiday with Mac Miller’s “The Space Migration Tour,” followed by Emeli Sande.

Marilyn Manson takes the stage on July 17th and you won’t want to miss O.A.R. with Andrew McMahon and Allen Stone on the 20th.

Unlike some other venues in the city, the Live Nation-operated Tabernacle focuses pretty much exclusively on popular musical acts within a wide range of tastes and styles. Where else could you really see John Butler, Trampled by Turtles, and Pentatonix all within the same couple of weeks?

Summer in Atlanta is a perfect time to get out and soak up the heat at some outdoor Atlanta concerts as well. For those more interested in sports, Atlanta has so much to offer as well. Just think of Braves, Silverbacks, Hawks, Falcons, and Dream and you know what I’m talking about. The best of the best!

Aaron’s Amphitheater at Lakewood is a huge outdoor venue that’s hosting the Vans Warped Tour on July 25th And if you feel inclined to venture outside the city limits, there are plenty of shows to keep your foot tapping at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in nearby Alpharetta, the Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre in Mableton, and the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater in nearby Peachtree City.
