FreakNik® to Partner With MetaWorks Platforms and MusicFX for Live Event

“FreakNik: The Wildest Party Never Told” Documentary to Be Aired on Hulu

FreakNik®, Atlanta’s legendary Spring Break celebration that gained popularity throughout the ’80s and ’90s, has seen a recent flurry of press surrounding an original documentary by Hulu entitled “FreakNik: The Wildest Party Never Told.” The celebrated albeit notorious event has seen a resurgence after 20 years as Atlanta-based promotional company After 9 Partners brought it back to life in 2019 as a celebration of the FreakNik® of the 90s and has continued to stoke the public’s interest through a series of community events and concerts.

Due to the pandemic, 2020 saw FreakNik Festival partner with City of South Fulton Mayor khalid, for a historic March on Old National, in response to the Black Lives Movement called “Black Fathers are D.O.P.E.” or Dad’s Overcoming Pressure Everyday. The following year with pandemic restrictions pealing back, FreakNik® Festival returned as a free outdoor community event with over 6000 patrons and a concert with 4000 patrons.

And in 2022, FreakNik® Festival partnered with 21 Savage to co-produce his star-studded FreakNik® Birthday celebration, where Drake joined him to host with other notable celebrities such as Lizzo, Teyana Taylor, and political wonks Stacey Abrams and Mayor khalid in attendance.

For 2023, After 9 Partners’ FreakNik® Trademark has partnered with  MetaWorks Platforms Inc., an award-winning, full-service Web3 blockchain platform provider, and MusicFX– its NFT, wallet, and ticketing platform partner to produce a live festival as a preview to future events under the FreakNik® brand and to capture content for the forthcoming documentary.  

Created to radically improve the connection between musicians and their fans, MusicFX meshes perfectly with the positive works of FreakNik® and its fans. Attendees can expect live music, interactive artist activations, vendors, and more through its event partnerships, including GA Followers and Cassie Cope Consulting. Hosted at BonFire ATL, located at 1036 White Street SW, Atlanta, GA 30316, on Sunday, May 7th, from 3 to 8 p.m., tickets for the limited-capacity event will go on sale Friday, April 21st. A special after-party event will be announced in the coming days. Tickets are available online at FreakNik® is a 21+ event.

This live event will be co-produced by M.W.P.E.G. Entertainment Group led by Michael Williams, an Emmy-nominated Super Bowl production company, alongside BonFire ATL, a black-owned Atlanta-based event facility and promotional company, owned by Amichi Bertrand, Brian Wynder, and Terry Skywalker.
