Event Description

Shawn Mullins headlines the fourth annual Historic Oakland Foundation "Tunes from the Tombs" music festival at Oakland Cemetery. This fundraising event features musicians performing in and among Oakland's extraordinary monuments, mausoleums and renowned gardens. This year's theme is "Beyond Cool," and the festival features all genres of music: rock, folk, Americana, jazz, classical and everything in between. To soothe your spirits, "Tunes from the Tombs" will have plenty of beer and wine, including the new Woodchuck cider garden for 2014 with DJ Phiasco 2.0 spinning vinyl from the '50s, '60s and '70s. Local Atlanta food trucks will be serving a variety of tasty festival fare, and festival attendees can also take a complimentary guided mini-tour, or have their fortunes read by Robyn Avalon. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, but no coolers, outside food and beverages, or pets are allowed. Parking is available for $5 at the Grady Health Systems Parking Lot on Grant Street, and in the Oakland Cemetery Parking Lot. In keeping with Historic Oakland Foundation’s green initiative, festival attendees are encouraged to ride MARTA to the King Memorial Station.
