(ATLANTA) – September 13, 2019 – Last weekend, tens of thousands descended upon Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park for the 10th Annual ONE Musicfest. During the two-day festival, attendees enjoyed live performances on three stages and a vendors village filled with local businesses, cocktail brands, interactive social media stations, food trucks, breast-pumping and hydration stations and so much more. 
“Our 10-year anniversary was nothing short of phenomenal!” said OMF Founder, Jason Carter. “This year surpassed our expectations. The new venue proved to be the right location for ONE Musicfest and we look forward to Centennial Olympic Park as our home for years to come. Additionally, the feedback from patrons and the OMF Family has been overwhelming. Honestly, that’s what it’s all about. It’s about putting on for the culture and creating a safe space for progressive urbanites and artists to thrive.” 
 ONE Musicfest offered a diverse lineup for fans of many musical genres. Saturday’s performances included Gucci Mane, Tory Lanez, Rae Sremmurd, Summer Walker, Koffee, Queen Naija, Tobe Nwigwe and Greg Street’s “ATL Playlist” which featured Atlanta’s own Roscoe Dash, Rocko, Travis Porter, K Camp and Rich Homie Quan. Sunday’s line up included R&B performances by Ari Lennox, Teyana Taylor, Musiq Soulchild and Raphael Saadiq. Hip Hop fans witnessed the performances of a lifetime with sets from DMX, Wu-Tang Clan and KP the Great and his “Super Friends:” Monica, Lil’ Jon and the Young Bloodz, Waka Flocka, Usher, Pharrell, Lil Nas X and Crime Mob. This year also marked the first-ever “OMF HONORS,” where Atlanta music pioneers Jermaine Dupri and Dallas Austin were presented with commemorative plaques by Atlanta music manager-turned-Spotify executive, Chaka Zulu, on the main stage. From Usher to Three 6 Mafia to Ari Lennox to Raphael Saadiq, Wu-Tang and Tory Lanez, the energy throughout the day was infectious. “It’s Woodstock meets an HBCU Homecoming,” said a festival attendee.   Follow the festival on social at @onemusicfest and visit onemusicfest.com for more information

The second annual festival carried on in its raw and comedic Adult Swim style with exclusive Rick and Morty season 4 screenings, live performances of The Eric Andre Show, and artist performances by 2 Chainz, Iron Reagan, Tierra Whack, Freddie Gibbs, Vince Staples and many more.

Freddie Gibbs

Prolific Gary, Indiana MC Freddie Gibbs along with his DJ and collaborator Madlib rocked the stage at Adult Swim Festival at Banc of California Stadium Saturday November 16th. Easily the afternoon’s top performance, the duo performed a grip of tracks from their latest project Bandana along with some acclaimed classics from the Piñata LP like “Thuggin” and “Harold’s”. The chemistry Gibbs and Madlib posses is unmatched and evident when they perform and it’s clear that Gibbs is a natural emcee when delivering his cocaine bars over those soulful beats.

2Chainz

College Park, GA Atlanta-native and Grammy award-winner 2Chainz had the crowd dialed in when he arrived on stage that night. Although 2Chainz may have been a last minute addition, after Young Thug dropped out, he brought South Atlanta style to Southern Cali. Performing hits like “I’m Different” and “Birthday Song” from his Based on a T.R.U. Story album along with verses from hits like “Big Bank”and “No Problem” his dynamic presence on stage commanded the audience’s attention. Along with his live band and T.R.U. artists, 2Chainz burst onto the scene and displayed precision in his musical prowess and a tireless work ethic. In the image of James Brown, “the hardest working man in show business”, he immediately flew out to Vegas’ Drais Nightclub for another performance as soon as his set wrapped up.

Vince Staples

Northside Long Beach’s own, Vince Staples was the last hip-hop artist of the night and did not disappoint. Coming out to a large cloud of haze, Staples’ hour-long set was complete with heavy bass, low lights and a few mosh pits. He performed some of his most popular hits from the latest album FM, like “Fun” and “Relay” along with “Big Fish” and “Norf, Norf” which had the crowd in a frenzy during his set. The young emcee held his own on stage and displayed a true representation of California confidence and style when delivering his lively verses.
