We believe in the definition of a collective- a group of individuals forming a whole, motivated by common issues and interests, working together to achieve a common objective.

Our Collective started in 2009 as an open mic night with a new perspective: bring together the city’s musicians to share the stage and honor a classic album while highlighting our community voices together. It’s not a cover band. Not a competition. A true collective sharing the stage, stronger as a whole, working to promote our city’s vibrant musical culture. Today, we operate as a non-profit with the same goals and love for our fellow musicians as the day we started.

ATL Collective exists to connect and empower Atlanta’s musical community through building relationships, fostering education, and promoting preservation. We aim to connect musicians with wider fanbases and provide the resources necessary to sustain musical careers.
