It is our mission to provide talented artists, and minds, a platform to connect with like-minded individuals in order to advance our culture. The Circuit is A3C’s first tour that seeks to further connect influencers and provide talented artists with opportunities to promote themselves and build their career. The Circuit will further unite the hip-hop community and provide networking, promotional and educational opportunities for artists, managers, media, creatives and others in multiple cities across the US.
2014 A3C Festival in Atlanta (Oct 8-12) will include The Circuit showcase featuring the best performers from across the US.
HipHopDX is the official media partner and ReverbNation is the artist submission platform. Four to eight (4-8) artists in each city will have the opportunity to perform for a group of industry insiders and A3C representatives. The “winner” of each showcase gets to perform on The Circuit @ A3C Festival (powered by ReverbNation) in Atlanta (Oct 8-12, 2014) and wins a prize package. More details below…
The Circuit can be broken down in 3 phases:
Phase 1: Network) A3C invites a few dozen local influencers and tastemakers to hang out, connect and share a few drinks while a local DJ spins.
Phase 2: Showcase) A3C ambassadors host a showcase featuring the most talented local artists yet to perform at A3C Festival. A handful of notable tastemakers will deliberate after all of the performances and select the best performer of the night. The “best in show” will receive a set on The Circuit @ A3C Festival in Atlanta (Oct 8-12, 2014) and a prize package.
Phase 3: Headliner) The Circuit will conclude with a final performance from an A3C Alumni, or two. The headlining artist(s) will be announced prior to the show and will be selected by A3C ambassadors.
Want to perform on The Circuit?
Artist submissions will be open – for FREE – on Reverbnation until 10 days before each event. Showcase artists will be announced 5 Days before the performance. Do not be discouraged if you are not selected, as here are only a handful of artists selected in each market, and you can always submit directly to A3C via Sonicbids.
