Hartsfield-Jackson Airport: Where Live Music Lives

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 anyway.
