Over the weekend, thousands of people flocked to Atlanta to witness the 6th annual ONE Musicfest that took place at Aaron’s Amphitheater in Lakewood on September 12, 2015. Gracing the stage were the talented Ms.Lauryn Hill, The Roots, A$AP Rocky, Wale, Janelle Monae & Wondaland, Raekwon, Ghostface, The Internet, Raury, SZA, Scarface, 8Ball & MJG, Big KRIT and Bun B. In honor of ONE Musicfest’s impressive economical impact on Atlanta, Atlanta’s Councilman member Andre Dickens, presented an official documentation proclaiming September 12th as “ONE Musicfest Day”.

One Musicfest was 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.

“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.”

Founded by Jason Carter, ONE Musicfest has been one of Southeast’s largest home-grown, musical arts festival to date including over 10,000 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.

ONE Musicfest is known for its interactive block party experience, where guests enjoyed nationally and internationally renown DJs, a food-truck village, vending from local businesses, VIP tents and more.

I had a great time and the energy was amazing. Check out the pics below!
