Hartsfield-Jackson will hold auditions for musicians to perform at airport

Hartsfield-Jackson International is holding auditions for musicians who want to perform at the world’s busiest airport.

The auditions will be held Thursday May 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the airport next to the SkyTrain entrance.

The Atlanta airport says it is looking for more musicians to play throughout the airport. There are currently 16 musicians who perform around the airport, and Hartsfield-Jackson aims to expand that to 20.

The positions will be for one-year starting July 1 and will be part-time. Musicians will be required to submit an hourly bid.
