The 5 Atlanta Festivals You Cannot Miss in 2015 Unless You Literally Can’t Even (Attend)

Sure there is the Dogwood Festival and the Inman Park Festival if you like buying birdhouses made out of license plates but what if you like to party? What if you enjoy a few brews and poor morals? What if you are young, single and sick of Chatroulette? Well friends, we have you covered. Here are the 5 festivals you should put in your day-timer for 2015.

5. TomorrowWorld – Sept 25, 26, 27 Chattahoochee Hills

This is the best EDM festival in the United States and it is in your backyard. Or some farmer’s backyard. Why is it the best? Because it is 21 and up. That’s why. Plus there are no lines for beer because all 60k people are huffing water all night for some reason.

4. FOO FIGHTERS – Oct 4th Centennial Olympic Park

Somehow our buddy Josh has lined up the greatest living band in the entire world for Centennial Park on October 4th. Dave Grohl is the coolest dude on the planet (besides Tony Robbins) and puts on one of the greatest live shows in the world (aside from Siegfried and Roy in Vegas. The tiger guys?) Anyway, if there are tickets still available get your shit together and buy a half dozen.

3. Shaky Knees Music Festival – May 8, 9, 10 Centennial Olympic Park

Ol boy Tim Sweetwood has built up a doozy here over the past few years. What once was held in pure mud at the Masquerade with some indie hippie bluegrass band has evolved into a 400 band fiasco at Centennial Olympic park. Tim, who is much taller than we are, has lined up some greats this year including The Strokes, The Avett Brothers, The Black Lips and some dude named Steve Gunn whoever that weirdo is.

2. Steamhouse Lounge Original Oysterfest – Feb 21st & 22nd 11th St & W Peachtree

This has been an Atlanta staple for the past 28 years. Did you hear me? 28 mother grabbing years. This beast takes place in Midtown and produces around a quarter trillion roasted oysters. Live music, booze, booze, booze and some booze. Budweiser and a shot of Jäger, rinse, repeat.

1. LEPRE*CON – March 14th Park Tavern

Shocker, our party comes in number one. Whatever, THE PEOPLE VOTED. It is the best St. Patrick’s Day party in the universe and doesn’t cost $400 a ticket. There are over 4,000 hot and horny folks making bad decisions and a few making real bad decisions (the contests, damn those contests). There is also a grassy hill, spring break stage, harem of DJs, live band, booze for days and a wet T-shirt contest because we think we are still 17 years old.

There you go folks. Cancel your Netflix and buy a funny shirt because festival season is upon us!

The World’s Greatest Most Fantastic Super Duper Anti-hotel New Year’s Eve Gala Extravaganza in the Universe. Ever. Part IV.

A Social Mess, in all its glory, is proud to present THE WORLDS GREATEST, MOST FANTASTIC SUPER DUPER ANTI-HOTEL NEW YEARS EVE GALA EXTRAVAGANZA IN THE UNIVERSE. EVER. PART IV. This epic New Year’s Eve Party will be the sexiest soiree in all of Atlanta and surrounding countries with 1,500 of the hottest ladies and gents in the South ringing in 2013 with a BANG. You’ll enter through a masquerade ball in the front of the BUCKHEAD THEATRE, so wear a mask and show off your mysterious side. To set the mood and keep you dancing all night long, we’ll have world-famous(ish) DJs Madflip, Mynd, Cannonball, and those wild Pananama City Boyz on old-school turntables on stage and the smokin’ hot DJ Camille ripping up the ones and twos in the center of the ballroom.

What about whip cream? We got you covered (only if you want to be). Whip cream wrestling? Sure, why not? Near-naked hotties in body paint? Done. Massive dessert/candy buffet? We know what you want. And because we’re sweet, let’s throw in Social Mess Candy Girls giving out free suckers all night long and if you can guess how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, we’ll enter you in the midnight kissing contest (still working out the kinks on that one). Don’t forget about the confetti and condom drop at midnight (safety first), and surprise antics only A Social Mess could pull off.

As for a few MINOR DETAILS: Open bar ALL NIGHT long with premium liquors and no lines, delicious food spread, complimentary coat check, massive restrooms, prop-filled photo booth, and 10,000+ square feet of pure amazing. Wear a tux or a sparkly party dress. Wear jean cut-offs and a Starter jacket. We don’t care! Get your tickets now before the price goes up like a 14-year-old watching Cinemax. We’re also presenting the first-ever VIP areas in the history of Social Mess events! Slow down, Cletus, there will only be two, but they will be BALLER SHOT CALLER status, so stay tuned for more info. Email us at for group discounts for ten or more.
