The 2017 Funk Fest Atlanta line-up on each day will include: Friday – Erykah Badu, Ro James and Digable Planets; Saturday – Bell Biv Devoe, Guy Featuring Teddy Riley, Mystikal, En Vouge, and SWV; Sunday – Kenny “BabyFace” Edmonds, Brandy and Joe, with more to be announced.
Fans can expect the same high-energy performances and great atmosphere that Funk Fest is known for, as well as complimentary parking and shuttle service to the venue from designated lots, and the option to bring in food and drinks.
“Atlanta remains one of the best stops on the tour because of the support that our fans have continued to give us over the years,” said Leo Bennett, CEO, Funk Fest Concerts, Inc. “We’re returning to Wolf Creek at the request of many of our supporters, and look forward to providing an enhanced concert experience with the addition of a third day of performances.”
