“We are beyond excited about the 14th annual ONE Musicfest in the middle of Piedmont Park is a dream come true, especially on the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop,” J. Carter, Founder of ONE Musicfest, said in a statement.
“It doesn’t get any better than this. It will be a premium experience for the artists, the attendees, and our partners. We look forward to our new home in Piedmont Park and delivering an elevated experience to our many fans.”
2022 was an exceptional year for the festival, as it witnessed a substantial increase in attendance of over 45,000 people at the sold out event, which included performances from Ashanti and Ja Rule, City Girls, Tems, Jagged Edge, Larry June, Saucy Santana and Lupe Fiasco.
Ticket prices range from general admission entry of $169.00 to Titanium packages of $5500.00. Ticket’s can be purchased on ONE Musicfest’s website.
Despite being on the bill for ONE Musicfest, Jadakiss recently admitted he still gets the pre-show jitters every time he gets onstage.
“I catch butterflies at every show,” he told DJ Enuff in an episode of G.O.A.T. Talk last month. “No matter which caliber, which city, no matter where I’m at.”
Enuff then said that these pre-show jitters were indicative of how much he cared for his craft — an assessment to which Jadakiss agreed. “Facts,” he said. “Every show, there’s some butterflies before you gotta go out there.”
