Outkast: ATLast

If you’re a true ATLien then you know how huge this concert is to the city of Atlanta. Outkast took an eight year hiatus and now they’re back together performing around the world at various summer musical festivals. The hip-hop duo has performed at Coachella in Indio, California and at the OVO Fest in Toronto, Canada. Much speculation has been amongst fans if they were going to come back to where it all started, their hometown, Atlanta, Georgia. The highly anticipated concert was revealed that it would take place from September 26th– 28th at Centennial Olympic Park. The concert was originally only one day, but due to popular demand the group added two more shows in Atlanta. Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino, and budding Atlanta singer/songwriter Raury will be opening for the dynamic duo.



Georgia State Fair

The 2014 Georgia State Fair will be from September 26th– October 5th at Atlanta Motor Speedway. There will be live musical performances from Ginuwine, the LACS, A Flock of Seagulls, and The Jagged Stones. This year the state fair will have magic shows, helicopter rides, a petting zoo, a Mexican rodeo, Coronas Hollywood Circus, and much more family friendly attractions. As if the live musical performances and attractions weren’t enough, there will also be a demolition derby, a BMX stunt show, a yoyo contest, and a truck pull. Tickets are very reasonable and can be purchased on the day of the event. Gather your family together and enjoy the 2014 Georgia State Fair!
