Live music. That’s what we need at the airport – a band, some jazzy tunes, some local flair and joie de vivre to make our time spent waiting around a little less dull. Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta has just that. What else could we expect from a city bursting with live music venues?
We definitely don’t need more of that annoying background elevator music that just makes you feel weird and uncomfortable anyways.
At Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, passengers are often greeted by the sound of live music when entering the Atrium area. Throughout the year there are different varieties of music ranging from latin to the Black History music series to the holidays but for two weeks in May, as part of the city-wide Jazz Festival Celebration, Hartsfield-Jackson presents stellar jazz performances in the Airport Atrium.
