Lil Wayne, Big Boi and the Rock The Bells Stage at ONE Music Fest
By Rock The Bells Staff
Another ONE Music Fest for the ages!
The popular progressive urban music festival kicked off in Atlanta this weekend and did not disappoint. Fans flooded the ATL to catch some of the biggest names in music on the ONE Music Fest stage, and a broad cross-section of legendary artists gave the people what they wanted.
And of course, the “Sprite Presents Rock The Bells” stage, which featured Big Boi, Too $hort, Big K.R.I.T., Curren$y, Childish Major, GRIP, Rexx Life Raj, and more, was second to none as it pertains to showstopping performances.
Day One kicked off with high voltage performances, and over the course of the weekend, fans were treated to sets from acts like H.E.R., Crime Mob, SWV, the Isley Brothers, Kirk Franklin and megastar Lil Wayne. Despite a bit of drama (Burna Boy didn't perform as expected) the fans seemed to be ecstatic at the lineup.
T.I. rocked the hometown crowd, and rap fans got to see father and son talents taking the stage, as the ATL rap legend's son Domani also performed. Rap vets like Too $hort made it clear why they've remained the gold standard for Hip-Hop performances, as newcomers like GRIP and D Smoke staked their claim to rap immortality. And ATL legend Big Boi led the crowd through his body of work, including OutKast hits like "Ms. Jackson" and his anthem with the Purple Ribbon All Stars "Kryptonite."
One MusicFest took place at Centennial Olympic Park in Downtown Atlanta.
