When we parents need an activity that is fun, free, and easy, a summer concert is music to our ears. Atlanta is full of these free summer concerts and music festivals —families pack up a few tailgate chairs, blankets, snacks and drinks, and head to a nearby greenspace to hear live music and let kids run loose. We've rounded up the best outdoor summer concerts and music festivals all over Atlanta, from Duluth to intown and everywhere else in between. And the best part? Every Atlanta event on our list is FREE. The second best part? Most of these summer concerts happen after the sun goes down so families won't be sweating to the oldies.
