#OneMusicFest 2022 Review

The annual One Music Fest was held on October 8-9, 2022 in downtown Atlanta. I really enjoyed myself. This was my fifth time attending.

It’s like Coachella meets Soul Train because the focus is primarily Hip Hop and R&B/Soul artists. Check out for more info.

Ms. Lauryn Hill

This year’s headliner was Lauryn Hill and Jazmine Sullivan and a plethora of other artists on various stages such as DVSN, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Tank & The Bangas, Sean Paul, City Girls, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Saucy Santana, Alex Isley, Lupe Fiasco and Chloe.

There were also food trucks, other vendors, sponsor tents, and cool backdrops for selfies. There was even an outdoor Roller Skating rink set up to skate if you desired.

My favorite performances were from Lauryn Hill, Tye Tribbett, Sevyn Streeter, Alex Isley, and Jazmine Sullivan, and when The City Girls brought out surprise guest, Usher, to perform their latest single “Good Love”.

During Lauryn Hill’s performance of the song “To Zion” her son Zion came out on stage with his children too. It was beautiful. Lauryn Hill is a grandma yall! Wow.

Also, Jazmine Sullivan her background singers were phenomenal and Jazmine even opened up about her personal life. She shared that her mother is battling cancer right now and to comfort her everyone in the audience cheered for Jazmine’s mother by saying “We Love You.”

Singer-songwriter, Sevyn Streeter, also put on a great performance and she and her background dancers looked great in orange.

Tye Tribbett’s high-energy Gospel performance was amazing too and really ushered in the presence of God.

BET’s Original 106 & Park hosts, Free & AJ, were hosts on one of the stages too.

I even got to meet singer-songwriter, Alex Isley. She was walking around after her performance and I walked up to her and asked for a photo. She was so kind and smelled good too. The funny thing is just a few weeks ago I wrote about her for Magnetic Magazine, (click to read)and then boom I met her!

There were thousands of people at the event and even Stacey Abrams’s campaign was there promoting others in Georgia to register to vote.

I felt as if I got my money’s worth seeing so many artists at the two-day event. Overall I enjoyed myself at One Music Fest and if you are a fan of R&B/Soul and Hip Hop I highly recommend going!

One Music Fest 2017

This weekend was The One Music Fest held in Atlanta, GA. This year the music festival was divided into two days. The first night was at The Tabernacle and artists such as Ari Lennox, J.I.D., and Thundercat performed. However, this year I only attended the second day of the festival which was held at Lakewood Amphitheater and the breezy fall weather made for a great day! At Lakewood Amphitheater there is the Main stage that has reserved and covered seats and lawn area and then there is the standing room only Festival Stage with various DJ’s and performers. The main stage performances were from Ro James, Jidenna, Migos, and Jill Scott and the festival stage had Mos Def (Yasin Bey), Kaytranada, Too Short, and Damian Marley. Each artist had about a forty minute set on stage.

FullSizeRender 45I primarily stayed at the Main stage because I had a seat and was more familiar with those artists performing on that stage and I also didn’t feel like standing up for long periods of time in between sets. My favorite performances were from Jill Scott and Migos. I really enjoyed the crowd atmosphere and positive energy at the festival. From the various t-shirt, jewelry, and art vendors and food trucks and variety in performances, it was worth it and I recommend attending next year because the festival just gets better and better!
