Atlantas ONE MusicFest Celebrates Musical Diversity

In just three short years, ONE MusicFest has arguably become Atlanta's most popular music festival, rivaling some of the festival veterans for diversity and a killer line-up. This year's event promises more of the same, and perhaps even more from some of the most celebrated acts in music, both independent and mainstream. This Labor Day weekend, September 1 st at 12:00pm Atlanta is set to be a musical oasis, as the third annual ONE MusicFest once again promises to fully captivate the city through musical diversity.

By hosting acts of various genres (hip hop, R&B, rock, pop and electronic) and successfully serving both indie and mainstream fans, this is one musical showcase that is the perfect farewell to summer. The performance line-up is definitely worth the price of admission, with artists such as Santigold, Marsha Ambrosius, Big Krit, Eric Roberson, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane and MC Lyte. Also on hand to keep the party rolling is an eclectic mix of DJs, including DJ Sky, DJ Dibase, DJ Danny M and DJ Greedy. Held at Old Fourth Ward's Masquerade Park, the venue has 3 indoor concert spaces, 1 outdoor concert space and over 10 acres of green space. If the crowd is anything like last year's event, expect to be surrounded by more than 5000 music fans.

In what is perhaps a smart move to ensure that fans remain at the festival all day, this year organizers of ONE MusicFest have partnered with The Food Truck Showcase to provide a myriad of food choices for visitors to enjoy all day long. Some of the vendors include: SteamHouse Lounge, Yumbii, One Love Jerk Grill and The Fry Guy to name a few. Together they will be serving a tasty mixture of Paninis, sandwiches, gyros, crab, shrimp and veggies. There are two separate ticket prices and accommodations to choose from.
