Set against a backdrop of the Midtown skyline, four different stages host performances from genres ranging from pop to hip-hop, alternative to electronic.

ATLANTA STREETS ALIVE
Old Fourth Ward
Take advantage of a rare moment when the streets of Atlanta’s eastside neighborhoods are shut down to cars and experience Atlanta Streets Alive. Bike, walk or skate down a closed-off section of North Highland Avenue and Boulevard while exploring the local businesses along the way. Many set up booths and offer discounts, specials and activities throughout the afternoon. Decorate your bike for the bike parade that kicks off the festival as the parade rolls from Virginia-Highland to Old Fourth Ward.
