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."

All 3 Coasts (A3C) gather annually in Atlanta to connect, create and build together.
