DJ Kid Capri shuts down Mother's Day edition of R&B Soul Picnic

The heart of Atlanta’s Westside Park pulsed with soulful beats and vibrant energy as the 2024 R&B Soul Picnic took place over Mother’s Day weekend, May 11 to May 12. This year’s event, a celebration of R&B music, DJs, and a poignant platform for mental health awareness, drew over 10,000 enthusiasts who reveled in the R&B rhythms and meaningful messages.

With special guests Porsha Williams and CeeLo Green – who also curated a set with his tour DJ –  the RnB Soul Picnic delivered an unforgettable experience. With high-energy sets by renowned DJs such as ATL’s own Bryan-Michael Cox, NYC’s Kid Capri, the incomparable DJ Trauma (known for his collaborations with Dave Chappelle and his ties to CAU), and DJ Envy from the “Breakfast Club,” attendees were treated to a diverse array of sounds that touched every decade of R&B.

DJs for the weekend included: Envy, Bryan-Michael Cox, Tephlon, Traci Steele, Mars, SNS, Stormy Monroe, DJ Nasty 305, Tron, Bowtie DJ, Queen of Spades, DSA, Kid Capri, Princess Cut, Trauma, Reese, PNut, Yung Fro, and J Smoov.

Beyond the music, the event served a higher purpose, shining a spotlight on mental health advocacy. Partnering with Shanti Das’s “Silence the Shame” and Dr. Marcus Green of New Beginnings Today, the R&B Soul Picnic aimed to destigmatize mental health issues and foster open conversations.

One of the highlights of the event was the generous contribution from York Promotions, who donated $5,000 to Silence the Shame, further bolstering efforts to support mental health initiatives.
