Every Friday through May 31, 2024

Join us for an unforgettable experience as we kick off summer with the vibrant sounds of Atlanta’s local musicians at the Georgia Aquarium. Sound Waves is more than just a music series; it’s a celebration of the arts, diversity, and the magnificence of our city’s talent.

We’ll amplify the sounds of our city and uplift the talented voices of these artists. During this series, you will discover sound waves in a new way while connecting with the ocean’s magnificent life. Enjoy live music with enhanced lighting and atmospheric elements in our atrium to complement the artists. While you’re here, you’ll have access to the Aquarium’s galleries, included with general admission.
