Tunes from the Tomb
Last year my son and I attended this unique event and had a BLAST! We can’t wait to return for this year’s show.
Tunes from the Tombs is held at Atlanta’s Historic Oakland Cemetery. This event is an annual all-day music festival June 14 from 1-8 p.m. This event will feature a amazing line up of musicians performing in and amongst Oakland’s extraordinary monuments, mausoleums and renowned gardens. Two main stages will host amplified artists, while buskers will perform on distinct vignette stages throughout the cemetery. From rock to folk, Americana to jazz and classical to everything in between, a variety of tunes will entice everyone to boogie down. Soothe your stomach as well as your soul with good eats from Atlanta food trucks, which will be on-site serving a variety of tasty festival fare.
