Atlanta's ONE Musicfest comes by once a year, featuring some of contemporary hip hop and R&B's leading lights. This year's headliners include Nas and Kendrick Lamar, along with many other acts on different stages, including a DJ stage, kicking off around noon on Saturday, September 13 at Aaron's Ampitheatre at Lakewood.
Jamal Ahmad took time away from The Soul of Jazz to talk with ONE Musicfest Founder Jay Carter, about the music and about one of Atlanta's unique days of entertainment.
One of Atlanta's most compelling music festival events is the annual One Music Fest, taking place on Saturday at Masquerade Music Park and Historic Fourth Ward Park.
