  1. Went there to see R5 in 2013. I felt a few things but you can’t expect to really notice anything when you’re surrounded by over 500 other people. Have read up on it though, possibly haunted.

  2. I’ve played this venue several times without incident. .except when I play the heaven stage. The first time I played heaven my guitar players amp fell over..mid set? No one touched it and it kept working but this is an 80lb tube amp on a flat surface that no one touched. More recently I played with another group my amp randomly cut in and out. Power to the outlets that supplied our pedal boards went out then came back – no one touched anything. My guitar player broke a string and then 2 guitar pics in a row shattered in my hands. Im not a believer and we’re used to tech issues, everyone is, but that many back to back? The other two bands we played with had no issues.. it felt haunted but i may just be talking sh!t. I Will say its a great venue that does great things for music in Atlanta.. I found this because I searched to send if anyone else had a haunting experience on this stage. I’d love to hear more. This place is an institution and I will be there anytime they’ll let me.

      • No they didn’t. It’s still operational until construction around it is done and they move to a new location. And even then they’re not tearing down the main building.

  3. Back in the 90s the Masquerade was the place for the Atlanta Music Scene. If your looking at the stage to your right, I ALWAYS FELT SOMETHING. It didn’t bother me at all but when you walked in the building there was a hole another vibe. Like don’t come in. I felt the same feelings everytime&I went there constantly.

  4. The only experience I ever had there, was in 2010. I kept feeling like someone was following me up the stairs and no one was behind me. The bands were switching so I was only let back that way so I could go to the bathroom. While I was peeing, someone opened the door and I heard what sounded like someone walking, but when I came out of the stall, no one was in there.
