Other Location The Masquerade Outdoors

Doors 2:30 pm / $45 ADV / All Ages

Due to unforeseen structural issues with the festival site, the Saturday, August 21st Sad Summer Festival in Atlanta will no longer take place. 


Independent venues have had a rough year, as have us all. Our team has worked extremely hard alongside the Sad Summer Festival team to provide you with an amazing and safe event. 


With that said, our number one priority will always be fan safety and we have personally made the decision to cancel this event for that reason solely. 


The Masquerade and our team have been supported by the Atlanta community since our foundation in 1988. It breaks our hearts to deliver this news to the people that keep our business and live music alive in our city.


We appreciate your understanding and promise to have all of your favorite bands back in Atlanta as soon as possible.
