Dungeon Family and Organized Noize Will Reunite at Atlanta One Musicfest
While summer festivals have already begun to come and go, hip-hop heads may have good reason to make a pilgrimage to Atlanta this fall, as the city's ONE Musicfest has just announced its lineup and the attractions are many. While they may not register as a festival's main headliner, what jumps out immediately from the above flyer is the middle portion which lists a Dungeon Family and Organized Noize reunion, complete with an array of affiliated artists.
Headlining the festival will be Ice Cube, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, A$AP Ferg, Anderson .Paak and more, while the Dungeon Family reunion will include Big Boi, Killer Mike, Cee-Lo Green, Big Gipp, T-Mo, Sleepy Brown among others.
While "special guests" are mentioned, absent from the list is the second half of Outkast himself, Andre 3000.
In 2014, Outkast performed a number of reunion shows on their own, including three at Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park. Whether Three Stacks will be a part of the ONE Musicfest reunion will surely hang in the air leading up to and throughout the September 10 festival.
In previous years, the ONE Musicfest has featured performances from Nas and Kendrick Lamar. Organized Noize have recently recaptured some of the hip-hop spotlight with their documentary The Art of Organized Noize, which premiered on Netflix earlier this spring (March 22). The documentary featured interviews with L.A. Reid, Andre 3000, Big Boi, Diddy, Future, Ludacris and Metro Boomin and the reunion no doubt will serve as an additional piece of nostalgia and reverence for the production group and their fans.
