Drake and Migos
When: November 16-18
Where: State Farm Arena
Cost: $143+
Details: Originally only two shows of the Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour were scheduled in Atlanta, but a third show was added Sunday due to overwhelming ticket demand. So if you don’t already have a ticket, you’ll probably want to grab one ASAP.

DreamHack
When: November 16-18
Where: Georgia World Congress Center
Cost: $30-$200
