One Music Festival 2022: TBD Often referred to as the music capital of America, and most certainly of hip hop, Atlanta’s One Music Festival should be on your list. For 10 years, the festival has been bridging the gap between old and new. Past lineups have included the likes of Wu-Tang Clan and Musiq Soulchild alongside Gucci Mane and Summer Walker. The one-day event held in Centennial Park is also loved for its live art installations and extensive food truck village. In 2019, Slutty Vegan, a popular Black-owned vegan restaurant in Atlanta was on-site at the festival.  As travelers, it’s important to support local festivals just as much as we do global ones. One Music Fest is the largest festival in the Southeast and directly pumps money into the local economy. Over 25 Atlanta-based vendors are featured annually at the event, with many of them being Black owned so travelers can feel good knowing they’re supporting local Black businesses.
