Each year for the past nine years, ONE Musicfest has highlighted the music of the past, present and future. The festival has grown immensely since its humble beginnings to become a staple on the Atlanta music scene.
This year, the festival switched things up by bringing in twice the number of artists and hosting the two-day event in a new location, Central Park in Atlanta’s historic Fourth Ward neighborhood.
The lineup included veteran artists like Nas, 2 Chainz and Monica, along with newcomers, including St. Beauty and H.E.R., among many others. We caught up with some of the attendees who shared their favorite festival moments.
