Over 20,000 attendees traveled to experience ONE MusicFest, the Southeast’s largest urban music and arts festival in Atlanta, GA. Celebrating nearly a decade of incredible music and art, ONE MusicFest boasts its most diverse and dynamic lineup yet this year. Celebrating with a pre-festival concert, fans enjoyed performances by Thundercat, J.I.D, Ari Lennox and Noname at the Tabernacle Atlanta. Then ONE Musicfest took over Lakewood Amphitheater for 11 hours of nonstop music on two performance stages and three DJ stages.  Headline artists included A-list superstars: Jill Scott, Yasiin bey (formerly known as Mos Def) in his farewell performance, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, 8Ball & MJG, Pastor Troy, Jidenna, Kaytranada, Too $hort, Tank and the Bangas, and more.

Founded by Jason Carter, ONE Musicfest has been one of Southeast’s largest home-grown, musical arts festival to date including over 20,000 plus attendees. Carter has brought Atlanta music lovers the best and the brightest urban alternative acts performing in a welcoming, hospitable setting, creating an atmosphere where everyone can enjoy and discover music. Atlanta City Council presented J. Carter and the ONE Musicfest organizers with a City Proclamation announcing September 9th as officially ONE Musicfest Day in Atlanta, Ga.

“There is a lack of representation for soul, progressive hip-hop, alternative and rock, represented under one roof, in the format of music festivals in Atlanta”, states J Carter, ONE Musicfest Producer.  “We have noticed that while there are many pockets of individuals that share taste in the same music, rarely do you see them share in this together. ONE Musicfest was created with the idea of ‘music as the universal language’. Over time we aim to grow this fest into a phenomenon and bring together different sectors of individuals through a unique music platform.”

This year, ONE Musicfest set out in hopes to unify the community through music. ONE Musicfest is the only place to see this roster of incredible acts join together for ONE purpose  – which was to witness a wide variety of sounds, from rock to hip-hop, electro, reggae, funk, disco, house, alternative and soul while having your musical senses stimulated. ONE Musicfest’s main focus was to create a roster of performers that would be enjoyable for multiple generations. “It is an honor to curate this festival line-up year after year with musical legends while also showcasing emerging artists to a sold out crowd in a city with a rich music legacy”, states Cynthia Charles, Festival Director and Lead Talent Buyer.
