A3C educates and empowers the artists, entrepreneurs, and creatives that shape hip-hop culture.

Founded in 2005, the A3C Festival & Conference has grown from a local showcase to become one of the most important hip-hop events of the year, which is commonly referred to as “Hip-Hop’s Family Reunion."

The 3-Day A3C Conference hosts dozens of panels, workshops, mixers and mentor sessions with hundreds of thought-leaders and industry experts.

The 2-Day A3C Festival is the breeding ground for the next generation of stars while honoring the legends and trailblazers of hip-hop.

The 5-Days of Shows & Events highlight different aspects of hip-hop culture and showcase hundreds of artists, producers and DJs from around the world.

All 3 Coasts gather annually in Atlanta to connect, create and build together.
