Saturday, June 18 at 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Last year’s Tunes from the Tombs marked the first time in the festival’s history that all performers hailed from Georgia. The all-local lineup continues in 2016, with over a dozen bands accompanying two-time Grammy winning headliner Arrested Development for a day of music and spirits benefitting historic Oakland Cemetery.
Leading up to the headlining performance, HeaveN Beatbox, James Hall, Adron, Rod Hamdallah, and Atlanta Funk Society take the MailChimp main stage, hosted by 97.1 The River’s Steve Craig. The stage at North Public Grounds, emceed by 97.1 The River’s English Nick, features a lineup of tribute bands, including: The Return(The Beatles); The Dirty Doors (The Doors); The B-53’s (The B-52’s); Fauxgerty (Creedence Clearwater Revival); and The Clermonts, who perform covers of various classic rock and party rock hits from the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. Additionally, Atlanta Taiko Project, Sarah Wilson, the Atlanta Braves Heavy Hitters, and Zardine Glaze perform at various locations throughout the cemetery.
The festival runs from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., with gates opening at noon. All proceeds from Tunes from the Tombs benefit Historic Oakland Foundation, which works to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery. Tickets on sale now, only at TicketAlternative.com.
