Venue Guide: Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood – Atlanta, GA
Oct 18, 2020
Opened in 1989, this Atlanta-area venue has undergone numerous name changes. It acquired the name Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in 2017. But no matter what it’s called, this 75-acre site within the beloved former Lakewood Fairgrounds has consistently provided the premier outdoor-music experience in Atlanta from spring to fall.
Over the years, the Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood has hosted legends from across the worlds of rock, pop, rap and country, including Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, the Spice Girls, Nicki Minaj and Shania Twain. Jam-band veterans Phish have called it one of their favorite places to play, thanks to its excellent acoustics, while Linkin Park included tracks from their 2004 and 2007 performances at the venue on their fan-club releases, LPU 4 and LPU 7, respectively.
The Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood is located four miles south of downtown Atlanta, on the east side of the I-85 interstate near the Langford Freeway East Exit. There aren’t really any pre-show dining destinations within immediate walking distance, but there are fast-food options aplenty on the west side of the freeway along Metropolitan Parkway.
The venue has an on-site parking lot that accommodates 6,000 vehicles. Premium Parking spots — located close to the entrance — can also be purchased in advance through Ticketmaster or at the Pryor Road entrance.
