Live at the Atlanta International Pop Festival: July 3 & 5, 1970 is a live album released by the Allman Brothers. It features their two performances at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival in Byron, Georgia. The festival took place nearly a year before the concerts that appear on At Fillmore East. Highlights include a "Mountain Jam" on which Johnny Winter guests.

While the album cover and second disc are labeled as being July 5, the second performance did not take place until 3:50 AM on the 6th according to the liner notes.
