Once a year, the vibrant city of Atlanta transforms into a pulsating hub of rhythm and melody, thanks to the ONE Musicfest. It was a celebration of old and new genres, uniting people from all walks of life, embracing music and culture. Presented by P&G, Toyota and Sprite, the weekend in Atlanta was crowded with energy and excitement.
The main stages at Piedmont Park were flanked by massive speakers that seemed to thrum with energy. Food vendors lined up throughout the park, offering an array of food and treats from Southern barbecue to Creole appetizers, each dish creating its own flavors. ONE Musicfest has become a destination festival attracting over 40,000 music lovers from all over the nation with non-stop music and good vibes within the park.
The once-in-a-lifetime, two-day event embraces three generations of music lovers. ONE Musicfest promotes Unity Through Music with their camaraderie while celebrating our culture and diversity. This year’s festival is special to the Black community because we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. The stages this year were graced by Janet Jackson, Lil’ Kim, El DeBarge, Big Daddy Kane, Nelly, Kendrick Lamar and many more. The uniqueness of the festival changed by the hour, welcoming different artists from various corners of the music world. It offered a diverse palette of sounds, R&B legends, rap icons, and famous DJs leaving their mark on the audience.
As the festival came to a close, the attendees dispersed into the night, hearts full and spirits lifted. They carried with them the memories of a day filled with rhythm and harmony, a reminder that in the heart of Atlanta, music was not just a sound — it was a way of life. The ONE Musicfest had woven a tapestry of connection, leaving an incredible mark on all who had been fortunate enough to be a part of it.
