The official source of what's happening in Atlanta, GA
Summer’s swan song is finally upon us, and with it comes a
host of celebrations in Atlanta to bid a fond farewell to the sweltering
temperatures, backyard barbeques and poolside excursions. There are a multitude
of events happening throughout the city this Labor Day weekend and arguably the
most soulful of them all is the Atlanta Labor Day Music Festival featuring some
of R&B music’s finest.
Taking place on the city’s south side of College
Park on Saturday, September 1, Wolf Creek Amphitheater is the destination for
the Atlanta Labor Day Music Festival, where you can see classic R&B artists
performing dozens of hits and Idol is
taking the stage as well. That’s right, this soul music showcase is headlined
by season three American Idol winner
Fantasia Barrino. Joining her powerful vocals are multi-platinum R&B group
Dru Hill, soul crooner Joe and the silky vocals of Tony Terry. Hosted by
comedian Lightfoot, this is a music showcase that gives R&B fans a perfect
combination of classic and current acts.
Giving attendees plenty of time to enjoy the day
and get everything they need or want before the show starts, doors for the
festival open at 4pm, which is two hours earlier than the actual 6pm showtime.
Various vendors will be on sight selling food, beverages, souvenirs and a host
of other merchandise to further enhance your concert-going experience. You can
