Something big is taking over Centennial Olympic Park in September, and some are even dubbing the event, "Georgia's Coachella." It's only right that the biggest names in Hip-Hop, R&B and Soul are putting on the concert of the century in a cultural-Mecca like Atlanta. One Musicfest is back in Atlanta for its 10 year anniversary this September, and it's bigger and crazier than ever.
From Sept. 7 to 8, the historic Atlanta park will be reinvented into an urban playground, where over 50,000 people nationwide will flock to experience the best in music. One MusicFest has seen the likes of Outkast, 2Chainz, Lauryn Hill, T.I., A$AP Rocky, Jhene Aiko and more, but this year's lineup is one of the strongest yet.
Although R&B, Hip-Hop, and Soul are at the center of the day, you'll hear every genre, like EDM, alternative rock, reggae, funk, and house. Between the three stages, you'll witness artists who are constantly on the radio to locally acclaimed artists who you'll soon be adding to your playlists.
The festival recently announced additions to the original line-up, and everyone going should expect more than 20 surprises during the two-day celebration.
You'll party all day long (about 11 hours to be exact), so there will be plenty of food around to refuel on. With over 25 Atlanta-based vendors on-site, you'll have access to the best food and dessert in the city. Some of the confirmed vendors include:
Of course, there will be multiple bars with craft cocktails, beer, wine, and (most importantly) water.
In addition to music and food, there's plenty to keep you occupied when you need to catch your breath. You can watch or partake in live art in the Visual Artist Pavillion, pick up some unique pieces from one of the creative vendors, or have a mini-photoshoot at one of the photobooths and sponsor activations.
If you've been procrastinating on buying a ticket, the time is now. You can buy single-day, weekend general admission, VIP or platinum tickets here. Music lovers should also mark their calendars twice because Imagine Festival is hitting Georgia in September too.
Gates for ONE Musicfest open at noon on Saturday and Sunday. There will be giveaways for early-bird attendees! The fun wraps up at 11 p.m. on Saturday and 10 p.m. on Sunday.
Price: Single-day tickets start at $75
When: Sept. 7 & 8
Address: 265 Park Ave W NW, Atlanta, GA 30313
Why You Need To Go: A festival of this caliber can go head to head with the biggest festival names nationwide, like Coachella and Lollapalooza.
