The ONE MusicFest “State of the Atlanta Music Scene” Press conference and Roundtable took place at Park Tavern, which will also serve as the location for this year's ONE MusicFest concert. Saniyyah Griffin served as the panel moderator. Dantes Rameau, from ONE MusicFest 2011's official non-profit partner, The Atlanta Music Project came and discussed this year's music instrument drive taking place at the festival. ONE Musicfest featured artist and panelist Anthony David who captivated the crowd with a special live performance.
“There is a lack of representation for soul, progressive hip-hop, alternative and rock, represented under one roof, in the format of music festivals in Atlanta. We have noticed that while there are many pockets of individuals that share taste in the same music, rarely do you see them share in this together. ONE MusicFest was created with the idea of music as the universal language. Over time we aim to grow this fest into a phenomenon and bring together different sectors of individuals through a unique music platform," stated J Carter, SolFusion Founder and ONE MusicFest Producer.
Panelists included: Anthony David ( ONE MusicFest Artsit), Brittney King (CEO of New Heights Management & Consulting), Byron Wright (Director of Writer-Publisher Relations at BMI), Chad Radford (Creative Loafing), Dantes Rameau (Executive Director of Atlanta Music Project), Jason Carter (One MusicFest & SolFusion Founder), Jennifer Drake (Director of Rhythm & Soul at ASCAP), Miykal Snoddy (Music Producer Diddy Dirty Money - "Loving You No More," Lupe Fiasco ft. Trey Songz - "Out of My Head"), Mo Reilley (On Air Personality), Ricardo Spicer (Label Marketing Rep at Universal Music Group/Island Def Jam), Richard Dunn (The Muddy Water Group), and Moetown Lee (Westway Consulting, Management for 8 Ball & MJG, Robin Thicke & 50 Cent)
ONE MusicFest will be Hosted by Phife Dawg of a Tribe Called Quest and a few special Guests
