Calling all hip-hop artists: This week is your last chance to get on the bill for the 2015 A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta, GA! Apply by September 19, and you could be one of 50 Sonicbids artists performing alongside some of the biggest names in hip-hop this October, including De La Soul, Rakim, and Cam'ron.
"You're getting plugged into not only the Atlanta scene, but also the music scene worldwide," says Buggs Tha Rocka, who was invited to perform at A3C in 2013 after making the most of the 2012 festival as an attendee. "I didn't perform at A3C in 2012, but I made sure I was there with promotional items on hand. I built great relationships with music executives, bloggers, and artists, and then in 2013 I was performing with Talib Kweli."
With dozens of educational panels and networking events, A3C goes above and beyond to make sure that it’s a rewarding experience for anyone who attends. “The panels gave a lot of information on what to do to take your career to the next level,” says Buggs. “I encourage any artist to go – it's probably the most important part of going to these festivals, honestly."
All selected acts will receive a festival pass for each member of the group, and may keep 100 percent of their revenue from selling merchandise at the venue. Non-selected acts will receive a discount code for $25 off an all-access festival pass. Take your hip-hop career to the next level by applying to A3C today!
