13th A3C Festival & Conference | Oct 4-8, 2017
Hip-Hop Lives Here
The 2017 A3C Festival & Conference is going to be next level. We’ve got a lot of exciting news coming soon, but here are a few things you should know about this year:
- We’ve moved. The A3C Festival is a 2-day outdoor music festival at The Georgia Freight Depot on Sat, Oct 7 & Sun, Oct 8. The outdoor venue is bigger, we’ve got an indoor facility and better parking. The A3C Festival is going to be amazing. And don’t worry, we’re still going to have events on Edgewood Ave, it’s right down the street.
- We’ve partnered with Georgia State University’s Creative Media Industries Institute to develop the “Creator Complex.” The Creator Complex will provide some of hip-hop’s most talented artists and producers the space and resources necessary to collaborate and create.
- We’re launching the Action Summit, which invites activists, academics and artists to connect, discuss and address social justice challenges. The 2-day summit will host a series of panels, workshops, mixers and sessions culminating in the 3rd annual A3C Action Pitch Competition.
- Artist Submissions are now open. We ONLY accept artist submissions via Sonicbids. Each artist that is not selected to perform will receive a discount code worth more than the cost of any submission fee. All performing artists receive a free A3C pass, and at least 2 selected acts will receive $500 for their performance. Submissions are FREE until April 13th, but you must have an active Sonicbids account to submit your EPK for review.
Want to help us book the Festival? We are about to begin booking the Festival, but want to hear from you first. We do this for you, so we figured we’d ask you who you wanted to see. If you want to see someone, say something.
