If you’re looking for Atlanta events this weekend, going to a show is one of the best things you can do. The ATL is known for producing some of the most talented musicians in the world across a wide range of genres, including everything from R&B to hip-hop, funk to soul, rock, country, jazz, EDM … and the list goes on and on. The city is famous for giving us legends like Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, TLC, Outkast, Ludacris, John Mayer — and the list goes on. The venues in Atlanta spare no expense when it comes to setting the stage for such top-notch performers and consistently fill out with fans eager to get a glimpse of their favorite artists on tour. You can start by checking out the lineup at the Tabernacle, a historic, Victorian-era meeting house converted into an award-winning concert hall for the 1996 Olympics, located in the heart of downtown. Another great option is the recently renovated Coca-Cola Roxy, a 3,600-capacity music venue located in The Battery next to Truist Park. Artists who have performed on the Coca-Cola Roxy stage since its grand reopening in 2017 include Glass Animals, Olivia Rodrigo and Fleetwood Mac.

While you’re in the area, you could double the fun with back-to-back events this weekend in Atlanta by watching a game. Truist Park is home to the 2021 World Series Champions  Atlanta Braves, who play in  MLB’s National League East. It perfectly combines a classic ballpark feel with modern amenities for an utterly unique experience, and seeing a ballgame will be a safe bet for a fun time given the Brave’s incredible record. If you’re into sports but not the biggest baseball fan, Georgia is home to several Atlanta sports teams that boast a massive following. You won’t want to miss a showdown between two of the best NBA teams in the Eastern Conference when the black-and-red Atlanta Hawks take on the Philadelphia 76ers in State Farm Arena. And Mercedes-Benz Stadium never disappoints whether you’re watching Atlanta United FC in the MLS or the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL. With so many sport events this weekend in Atlanta, it’s hard to make a wrong decision.
