The City of Atlanta is excited to welcome back the 2nd Annual R&B Soul Picnic to the largest and most popular park in Atlanta, at the Promenade in Piedmont Park May 13th and May 14th. As a response to troubling times amid a pre-recession society, the R&B Soul Picnic will be an all-day soul healing experience where the Atlanta community will be promoting mental health awareness and celebrating R&B music. According to Pandora’s Cloud Cover Media, music can increase focus, help to manage stress, or improve mood during times of sadness. The R&B Soul Picnic was created to boost morale and celebrate life. The two-day music and lifestyle festival in Atlanta, GA is an outdoor concert that will cater to mothers, families and friends with live performances by SheJays (Female DJ’s) such as Traci Steele (Celebrity DJ), DJ Queen of Spades (Dave Hollister's Official DJ), Penny Lane (Jagged Edge Official Tour DJ), DJ Suga Shae ( Dj /Host Streetz 94.5), DJ Yung Red (Core DJs Worldwide), DJ Stormy Monroe (Super Bowl LVII NFL Game Day DJ), DJ Labonita and more prominent R&B, House, Afrobeat, Soul & open format DJs. Headliners, DJ Envy (Power 105.1 “The Breakfast Club”) and the Legendary DJ Red Alert (KISS 98.7) will be mashing up a soulful soundtrack for the summer on the 1’s & 2’s as well as DJ Mars (Usher's Official DJ), DJ Trauma (Dave Chapelle's Official DJ), DJ Shakim (New Edition's Official DJ) and many more. This event was created to pay homage to the Dj’s who are huge staples in the music culture & community as well as provide a healthy outlet for guests to get the healing they need; whether that be musical, spiritual and/or emotional.
“ATL, May 13th is my wedding anniversary so my wife and I will be at The R&B Soul Picnic and we are going to have a soulful celebration! It’s also Mother’s Day weekend so bring your mom out for the picnic!”- DJ Envy (Power 105.1 “The Breakfast Club”)

We look forward to continuing to provide a safe space where any and everyone can gather up their families and friends and come on out.
