The countdown begins in the final weeks until the 10th annual A3C Hip Hop festival. Artists and producers from around the country will gather in Atlanta to band “all 3 coasts” together for the biggest and best festival in A3C history. From October 8th through 12th, the festival will consist of non-stop shows and other events curated to brands, labels, promoters, and of course the fans from all over the world.
Amongst the 500+ acts that will be in attendance, Black Thought, 2 Chainz, The LOX, Mystikal & Juvenile, Twista, Bun B, Rocko, Buckshot, Talib Kweli, Casey Veggies and plenty more will be invading Atlanta. B.o.B will be kicking off the festival on the No Genre Stage along with Lil Bibby, Wave Chapelle, Bandit Gang Marco and plenty more. Legendary rapper Scarface will also be bringing his classic jams to A3C as the headliner at The Basement. Kid Capri is set to host the 2nd Annual A3C Rap Battle featuring Rio vs Young X and Saint Mic vs Chess at The Earl in East Atlanta Village.
But the festival will feature more than just music. BMI joined forces with A3C for a discussion about the history, influence and current status of New Orleans hip-hop w/ Juvenile, Mannie Fresh & Mystikal. Slaughterhouse and Duck Down will also be bringing the Duck Down BBQ to the Festival Grounds Main Stage to make the weekend complete. Be sure to cop your passes for the epic festival now!
