Chastain Park Amphitheatre is a small outdoor venue situated comfortably in a natural setting located off Roswell Road in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. It is really a beautiful venue for a concert - very intimate, but also safe - located in a good part of north Atlanta, the people sitting in the seats next to you are always nice folks. It is one of the most popular amphitheatres in the country. Seeing a concert here tells you it's summer in Atlanta. Many of music’s biggest names from every musical genre have appeared on the Chastain stage. Chastain is known for its relaxed atmosphere, matching the music and performances.  Most people bring a light supper, wine and cheese, coolers, candles and snacks and snuggle up with their honey to listen to music under the stars! You ARE allowed to bring in coolers, food and drinks, subject to inspection.

 

If you don't want to bring your own food and drink call "Glorious Events" at 770-452-9202 and "Proof of the Pudding" at  678-584-9581 for catering. Both offer gourmet selections of appetizers and full-course dinners. I'm not sure about the prices, but if you order ahead, it'll be ready when you arrive.

There are also stands selling food and drink: espresso drink or cool off with a Frappuccino® blended beverage from Starbucks and other concessions, located throughout the amphitheater, with a wine list by the glass or bottle, mixed drinks, wine coolers, soft drinks, bottled water, juices and more.


Tips and Key Information:  

  • Gates usually open around 6:30PM.  
  • All concerts are rain or shine.  I've often sat under an umbrella to watch a concert during a summer thunderstorm - it's actually fun!)
  • All seating areas are designated as non-smoking areas. A special smoking area has been set up near Gate 4.  
  • No cameras, video recorders or recording equipment are allowed (although, if you are discrete, you may be able to get away with it)

  • No chairs of any type are allowed to be brought inside.

  • All children must have a ticket, regardless of age or size
