Honoring Hip Hop’s Legacy: ONE Musicfest Showcases 50 Years of Influence

Pr Newswire ONE Musicfest, a well-known urban music festival, is preparing for its return this fall, backed by its partnership with Live Nation Urban. As the leaves turn golden and fall, marking the final weekend of October, music will echo through the trees of Atlanta’s historical Piedmont Park. A two-day symphony of melodies and rhythms, scheduled for October 28th and 29th, is poised to fill the park, honoring its legacy and the city’s vibrant energy.

Historically, ONE Musicfest has garnered attention by featuring a wide array of both legendary and contemporary artists.

The festival’s founder, J. Carter, has expressed anticipation about this year’s iteration, citing the significance of hosting the event during the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop.

Beyond the compelling array of musical talents, the festival has a unique pull – it is a magnet for a variety of high-profile brands. Like eclectic notes harmonizing within a symphony, brands such as Toyota, Red Bull, P&G, and Jack Daniels weave themselves into the fabric of the event, adding layers of interest beyond the music.
