Last weekend featured the first big concert festival in Atlanta since March, when the three-night Big Night Out series — featuring Big Boi, Killer Mike, Goodie Mob and the Marcus King Trio — was staged in Centennial Olympic Park.

The audience was socially distanced and sat in pods. ArtsATL concert photographer Perry Julien was on hand for the shows. “People miss live music,” Julien says. “Despite the heavy downpour Saturday night, the pods were full for the most part and a majority of the people did a good job of being as safe as possible. It’s so weird watching and listening to live music in this environment, but it feels so good to have live music in any form.”
