Ringing in the New Year at Philips Arena has become a tradition for music lovers of all kind! Traditionally Philips Arena hosts Widespread Panic on New Year’s Eve, however to ring in 2009 we stepped over to the ever hot ATL Hip Hop scene with Lil Wayne, T-Paine, Keisha Cole, and friends. In the past Philips Arena has also hosted the HollaDay Jam on January 1, of 2006 along with the 17 sell outs of Widespread Panic. Happy New Year from Philips Arena!
