Best Club Event: Sol-Fusion

Staff Pick

Promoters J. Carter and Kenny Burns may describe their popular nightclub event SOL-FUSION as an “intercontinental love fest,” but really it’s just one hell of a good time. No other event in Atlanta features music provided by some of the industry’s coolest personalities, such as ?uestlove and D-Nice, and a serious blend of genres from alt-rock to house to reggae. No other event assembles such a multicultural collection of people serious about partying, not posing.
