Hundreds of tech, film and music professionals will get a true Atlanta music experience with a DJ set by Grammy-winning artist, record producer, songwriter and rapper Jermaine Dupri. His hypnotic set will be followed by a live performance from five-time BET Awards and BET Hip Hop Awards nominee Rich Homie Quan.

Actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges will kick off the day's events, appearing at the Choose ATL Southern Brunch & Conversation to discuss how Atlanta nurtured his rise to fame.

The brunch and party is being hosted in partnership with lifestyle and marketing company Culture Republic. Maggie Mae's on Sixth Street, in Austin, is currently being transformed into the “ChooseATL House” for one day.
