Four Best Music Festivals Coming to Atlanta, Georgia

October 19th, 2017 by

Curls, Kinks, and Culture Music Festival

Taking place in October, this is the kind of festival we really like to recommend to visitors. That’s because it features exclusively local musicians and artists, which means that concertgoers will get an experience that can’t be had anywhere else in the country. In addition to enjoying the local music scene, festival participants can look forward to various vendors selling jewelry, soaps, oils, and other goods. There will also be activities such as yoga, henna, belly dancing, and more. There is truly something for everyone at this unique Atlanta event.

Womenincharg3 Music Festival

This concert’s unusual name hints at its original concept: a music festival comprised entirely of female musicians. According to the event’s rules, bands and artists must also play only original material and hail from the United States or Canada. While this means you might not see bands that regularly chart on the Top 40, it also means that you’ll be exposed to a wide variety of new and upcoming talent. The next festival will take place on July 14, 2018.

Imagine Music Festival

This is the festival to keep an eye on if you’re after big-name talent in the quirky genres of trance and house. The event was held in Atlanta during September 2017 and is expected to return during the same season in 2018. Previous performers have included famous acts such as Above & Beyond, Deadmau5, and Tiesto. We like to recommend this type of even, because it offers a more artistic and cultural experience than your standard stadium rock affair.

The African Art and Culture Festival

This exciting festival is planned for November 2017. It features African music, of course, but also boasts programs about cultural diversity, fashion, and art. The organization sponsoring the festival, Euriel Global Fashion, is proud to participate in social empowerment initiatives by staging cultural events like this festival. This event is a great opportunity to enjoy a myriad of activities and learn more about African culture.

The year 2017 may be almost over, but we think you’ll agree that there are a lot of festivals to anticipate throughout the next year. Atlanta is no stranger to major rock and country acts, but we like to think that you can find those shows on your own. The short list here should give you something a little more special to enjoy. And while you’re between concerts, don’t forget to drop by Hendrick Sandy Springs Toyota to take care of all your automotive needs.
