Some travel to Lollapalooza, others to Austin City Limits; however, the powerful One Musicfest continues to captivate with music that speaks to the soul. This year ONE Musicfest brings in the talents of Santigold, Big KRIT, Marsha Ambrosius formerly of Floetry, Eric Roberson and legends of Hip-Hop, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Dougie Fresh, and MC Lyte. Santi White, better known by her stage name Santigold, recently released her second album – Master of My Make-Believe and will join ONE MusicFest for her first ever performance in Atlanta.
Previous ONE MusicFest concert headliners include internationally acclaimed artists such as Common, De La Soul, Goapele, Chrisette Michelle, The Pharcyde, DJ Mick Boogie and a cornucopia of grassroots talent (click here to see last year’s photo gallery).ONE Musicfest’s mission of Unity Through Music earned the festival organizers the city of Atlanta’s coveted “Phoenix Award.” Infusing artists and bands that will unify spectators through the universal language of sound, ONE Musicfest fills a necessary void in the city’s music experience.
