More than 40,000 showed up for Atlanta’s premium hip-hop festival.

The first ONE Musicfest went down in a parking lot next to the King Plow Arts Center in Atlanta. About 2,000 people were in attendance.

This year was the 10-year anniversary ONE Musicfest, now known as Atlanta’s premium hip-hop festival. And more than 40,000 showed up at Centennial Olympic Park for the two-day event.

The festival went down on Saturday, September 7h and Sunday, September 8th. And despite some confusion and mishaps — aka a bunch of artists were late for their sets — the festival was a successful ode to southern hip-hop. The festival was star-studded: day one was headlined by a bunch of Florida rap legends, including T-Pain, Uncle Luke, Trick Daddy, and Trina. Also on the bill was Gucci Mane, Three 6 Mafia, Rae Sremmurd, and more.

Day two was headlined by Dungeon Family legend KP the Great. His set included all legends, from Usher to Youngbloodz to Young Joc to Lil Nas X to Monica. Other standout performances included sets from Wu-Tang Clan, Raphael Saadiq, Ari Lennox, and more.
