Underground Atlanta is bringing back the beloved Peach Drop!
The City of Atlanta are currently planning the return of ATL’s legendary Peach Drop at Undergound Atlanta, which will be back later this year following a lengthy hiatus brought on by the pandemic. For decades, thousands of Atlantans have gathered to watch the spectacle welcome in the new year, featuring the best ATL music has to offer.
This year’s festivities are no different, featuring Atlanta music acts Da Brat, Youngbloodz and Jagged Edge. Atlanta has not hosted the Peach Drop for the past four years. In 2019, it was the first time the 30-year tradition did not happen. Last year’s got cancelled at the last minute due to a surge in the Omicron variant.
The event was moved to Woodruff Park in 2017, but returned to Underground Atlanta the following year. It’s going back to its roots for the Peach Drop’s 2022 return, ringing in 2023 in true Peach State style.
So don’t miss out on this year’s Peach Drop, as it makes its triumphant return to Underground Atlanta for New Year’s Eve.
More plans for this year’s Peach Drop will be announced closer to the event, but we reckon it’ll be star-studded line-up on offer for Downtown Atlanta’s iconic NYE peach!
Mayor Andre Dickens announced, “This festival has been a tradition for generations, and it is my pleasure to be able to host a world-class event with these amazing partners so residents and visitors alike can make new memories ringing in the New Year together in Atlanta.”
