Atlanta’s music enthusiasts are unwavering in their support of Sol-Fusion productions.  The brand, a self-proclaimed communal gumbo for partygoers, delivered its best event yet with the third annual ‘ONE MusicFest’.  In past years, the festival featured a diverse blend of performers including Common,Foreign Exchange and The Pharcyde, and was successful at providing the city with a fresh experience for music lovers. This year’s festival made Masquerade Park its new location, nestled in the 4th Ward Historic Park, the first completed urban park of the Atlanta Beltline project.  The location allowed for a total experience that not only included quality performances, but a food truck village, an eclectic mix of vendors, Steamhouse Lounge’s Shrimp & Crabfest, live art, a mechanical bull and an outdoor space that was tailored to anyone. While talking with ONE MusicFest patrons who attended and enjoyed the festivals from years one and two—all agreed that the 2012 festival was the best. 

The most noticeable change was the addition of music legends. Rap pioneers, Doug E. FreshSlick Rick, MC Lyte and Big Daddy Kane, collectively touring as The Legends of Hip-Hop, headlined the festival.  There was something for everyone.
