Since its inception in 2010, ONE Musicfest has made a name for itself as the event that captures Atlanta’s culture and sound. From giant local rap act like Migos, who performed last year, to R&B and hip-hop legends like Lauryn Hill and The Roots who performed in 2015, ONE Musicfest has proven to be a sanctuary for hip-hop, neo soul, R&B and everything in between.
On Sept. 8 & 9, 2018, ONE Musicfest expands to two days and moves to a new intown location at Central Park. Perfectly curated to include something for everyone, the larger-than-life lineup includes Nas, Big Sean, Miguel and Big K.R.I.T, R&B veterans and rising stars Monica, DVSN and Goldlink and legendary funk masters George Clinton & Parliament. Armed with music from her brand new album, I Used to Know Her: The Prelude, H.E.R. joined the lineup after Cardi B dropped out to focus on the recent addition to her family.
ONE Musicfest also shows the love to homegrown stars with Big Boi, T.I and Jeezy hitting the stage to represent the city of Atlanta and the signature sound that they helped cultivate here. The “ATL Crunk Set,” curated by festival founder Jason Carter, features Youngbloodz, Ying Yang Twins, Trillville, Kilo Ali, and the Eastside Boyz.
The ONE Musicfest experience also features food trucks, an interactive Visual Artist Pavilion and a creative merchant village, attendees can enjoy a full day of activities. With audience comfort in mind and the support of partner ExBREASTyourself, the all-ages festival will offer pumping suites and storage areas for parents attending with children.
ONE Musicfest moved from its previous location at Lakewood Amphitheatre to bring the action closer into the heart of the city. Central Park is just a short distance from the Civic Center MARTA station, making it extremely accessible for those choosing to take public transportation.
Whether it’s hip-hop, soul, funk, rap, or beyond, ONE Musicfest has something for everyone to enjoy. This festival is growing in popularity and breadth, looking to become one of the biggest festivals hosted in Atlanta, while continuing to highlight the city’s culture and uphold its tagline, “Unity Through Music.” For tickets, visit https://onemusicfest.com/tickets/.
