The A3C Hip Hop Festival Recap
This past weekend will fall as one of the greatest weekends of hip-hop history in Atlanta. For those who missed it, the A3C Festival celebrated its 10th Anniversary across a number of venues throughout the city of Atlanta. The festival held over 500 performances and proved to be just as great if not better than past festivals.
The A3c Festival began as a one weekend event, that was founded by Brian Knott and Kevin Elfick. It was started as a display of Hip-Hop talent in the Atlanta area, however it quickly morphed into what we now know to be the A3C Hip Hop Festival which draws talent from across the U.S to perform here in Atlanta.
Hip-Hop legends such as Nappy Roots, Pastor Troy, Talib Kweli, Black Thought, Twista, and 8ball and MJG are just a few of the names who graced the stages of the A3C Festival. Newer faces, including Ca$h Out and Problem, also took to the stage.
Aside from the musical performances the A3C Festival hosted educational, style, and art events that were all geared at providing information, networking opportunities, and allowing new talent to present itself.
The festival lasted five days, beginning October 8 and ending October 12. Anyone who missed out should truly realize what a mistake that was. But rest easy, then A3C Festival will return next year and all should look out for it; as well as take pride in being from/living in Atlanta which has produced numerous educators, talent, art, and culture.
Our own photos and video will be on the way.
