Chastain Park is the largest park in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a 268-acre (1.08 km2) park located near the northern edge of the city. Included in the park are jogging paths, playgrounds, tennis courts, a golf course, swimming pool, private horse park, and amphitheater.
The outdoor amphitheater operates only during the summer months. While during most years there are shows between April and October, the majority fall between the end of May and early September. The two main promoters of concerts are Peter Conlon and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The capacity is approximately 6,900 with the vast majority of tickets being reserved seating. There is also limited general admission lawn seating at the very back of the amphitheater and at stage right. Only a small number of seats are covered. For all but a few shows a season, tables are setup in the pit and lower part of the orchestra section. Tables seat six, and all six tickets must be purchased together. Those who do not purchase table seats are allowed to bring in tray sized tables. Also for the table setup shows, food and drinks, including alcohol, are allowed to be brought in for consumption. During the shows promoted by the ASO, a porter service is provided to carry concert goers coolers and other carry ins to their seats. Elaborate setups with nice food, tablecloths, and candles are common. However, there are a small number of shows each season with a "Rock" setup. Here there are no tables or carry ins. Instead of tables in the pit, only rows of chairs are setup. Parking is limited and traffic can be a problem on nights when the show is sold out.
