“Georgia's summer concert home”
Chastain Park Amphitheater has become an Atlanta tradition. Home of the Delta Classic Chastain series, the amphitheater has worn many faces – including its current one as a summer tradition for making musical memories. While during most years there are shows between April and October, the majority fall between the end of May and early September. The two main promoters of concerts are the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Live Nation. The capacity is approximately 6900, with the vast majority of tickets being reserved seating. There is also limited general admission lawn seating at the very back of the amphitheater and at stage right. Only a small number of seats are covered. For all but a few shows a season, tables are set up in the pit and lower part of the orchestra section. Tables seat six, and all six tickets must be purchased together. Those who do not purchase table seats are allowed to bring in tray-sized tables. Also for the table setup shows, food and drinks, including alcohol, are allowed to be brought in for consumption. Elaborate setups with nice food, tableclothes, and candles are common. However, there are a small number of shows each season with a "rock" setup. Here there are no tables or carry-ins. Instead of tables in the pit, only rows of chairs are set up. Parking is limited and traffic can be heavy on nights when the show is sold out.
Chastain Amphitheater is an awful place if you're mobility impaired. They are only set up for the legally required wheel chair access and that is minimal. In the sweltering summer heat it's not worth the bother.
