One Music Fest (OMF) held a press conference on Thursday, July 8th to announce Atlanta’s first-ever One Music Fest: Unity Through Music Concert Series. The diverse concert series is the brainchild of founders (from left to right) Christian Ruffin (One Stop Music Productions), Robert Shaw (King Plow Events) and Jason Carter (Sol Fusion) and will showcase over a dozen musical performances.
King Plow Events, One Stop Productions and Sol Fusion have formed an alliance in order to produce ONEMusicFest, an annual interactive outdoor live music experience. This event is expected to attract thousands of people and expand throughout the 4 acres of King Plow Arts Center.
Fully supported by Mayor Kasim Ried, Director of Cultural Affairs Camille Ruffin represented for the Mayors’ Office and presented the trio with the city’s esteemed Phoenix Award, the highest award issued by the mayor.
The press conference offered a diverse panel discussion from radio DJ’s to event promoters who all had valid supporting issues for seeing this project through to a successful end. In all, the One Music Fest: Unity Through Music Concert Series will host bankable acts like Common, De La Soul, The Mad Violinist, Mick Boogie and more. The DJ booth will be a jambalaya of talent from Applejuice, DJ Cha Cha, DJ Kemit, Captain CRUNK and more. What Unity Music Fest will not offer is a the same ‘ol song heard by your top 40 radio stations.
Speaking on the maturation of Atlantan’s and how they expect the city to receive the concert, co-founder Christian Ruffin said, “We all have to grow at some point…it’s the one universal language…you fallin love the music first and you go back to listen to the lyrics later.”
Promotion for the concert will be largely done via social media networking on Facebook.com and Twitter, but you can also check online with OneMusicFest.com for the latest information and concert information.
