The annual musical extravaganza known as Funk Fest Atlanta hit the Wolf Creek Ampitheater in Atlanta Friday and Saturday, May 15-16.
R. Kelly and Erykah Badu headlined the orgy of sites and sounds. But the two-day event also starred rap pioneers and Miami legends 2 Live Crew, Total, Floetry and more.
As entertaining as the action on the stage was, there was also a show in the audience and music enthusiasts flossed their fancy wares.
Funk Fest community partner, Lifting As We Climb and Pepsi pledged awards up to $50,000 in scholarships to students in tour markets and will also provide 40 students with career immersion experiences in Public Relations, Marketing, Operations and Production during the tour.
Additional community investments will occur in Birmingham, Ala. through a partnership with the City of Birmingham’s Department of Recreation and in Columbia, S.C. in partnership with Benedict College.
