In about 2 weeks, if your are a true R&B, Neo Soul, Hip Hop, and Funk, pack up your car or grab a plane ticket and make it to Atlanta for ONE Musicfest on Saturday, September 10th. 

Now in its 7th year, ONE Musicfest has drawn more than 60,000 music lovers from all over the country to Atlanta to enjoy performances from artists including Kendrick Lamar, Nas, The Roots, Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill and Janelle Monae. In addition to seeing many of hip-hop's biggest legends, alongside some of today's most popular hitmakers, attendees will get the opportunity to experience an artist village, graffiti walls, and a separate stage with over 30 DJs. Each year, festival organizers make it a point to top the previous year's ONE Musicfest, and 2016 promises to be no exception.
The festival's hip-hop-meets-hipster vibe and consistently amazing lineup of performers inspired Billboard magazine to crown the event, "one of the late summer's mandatory activities for music lovers in The Peach State."
Check out the lineup for this year's show: 
  • Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals
