Atlanta is probably the hottest music scene in not only the Southeast, but perhaps the whole country. Most high-profile artists make sure to stop by one of Atlanta’s various music venues. These are my personal top 5 music events that are definitely on my calendar for the next few months (and VOX’s calendar — click here for more events).
- Van’s Warped Tour
Hosted at Aaron’s Ampitheater from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 2nd, Van’s Warped Tour attracts fans of several different types of entertainment, such as acoustic sets, spoken word, indie music, food, and deathcore. It also includes the famous mosh pits and signings by artists. There are also shopping opportunities in tents if you’re interested in the variety of merchandise. Tickets are $38.50, and you can find ticket information here.
Atlanta-based emerging artist, Raury, is hosting his second annual “Raurfest” at the Georgia Freight Depot near Five Points on Friday, June 26th. In addition to Raury, other people will be performing such as Trinidad Jame$, Big K.R.I.T., and India Shawn. The concert starts at 6 pm and the tickets are $20. You can get them here.
