Notable details[edit]
The amphitheatre is located approximately 4 miles south of downtown Atlanta, at the Lakewood Fairgrounds. Phish, among others, have called the amphitheatre one of their favorite venues to play at, due to the quality of the acoustics rarely found at lower-level roofed amphitheatres. Linkin Park used their performance of “One Step Closer” from Projekt Revolution 2004 on their LPU 4 CD and also used their performance of “The Little Things Give You Away” from Projekt Revolution 2007 on their LPU 7 CD. In 2008, the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park opened in Alpharetta, Georgia, an affluent suburb on the north side of Atlanta. This gave Metro Atlanta another premier outdoor venue along with Lakewood, Chastain Park Amphitheater in Buckhead/Sandy Springs and the Frederick Brown, Jr Amphitheater on the south side in Peachtree City.

History of name changes[edit]
The venue opened as the Lakewood Amphitheatre in 1989. At some point, it became the Coca-Cola Lakewood Amphitheatre and retained that name until 2000, when the name was changed back to Lakewood Amphitheatre. In 2001, the venue became known as HiFi Buys Amphitheatre. As of the 2008 season, the venue was once again known as Lakewood Amphitheatre, due to HiFi Buys filing for bankruptcy in 2007.[2] The facility utilized a logo similar to the one used before the name-change to HiFi Buys Amphitheatre. In May 2009, a naming-rights agreement was formed with Aaron’s, and the venue was called Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood. In January 2016 the venue went back to its classic name of Lakewood Amphitheatre.
