A3C (All 3 Coasts) Festival engages and inspires the artists, entrepreneurs, and creatives that shape hip-hop culture. Founded in 2005, A3C has grown from a local showcase to become one of the most important hip-hop events of the year, and is commonly referred to as “Hip-Hop’s Family Reunion."
The festival portion of A3C is a 2-day outdoor hip-hop event in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Thousands of hip-hop fans, artists, and creatives from around the world will gather to enjoy hip-hop music and culture outside the Georgia Freight Depot on Sat, Oct 7 and Sun, Oct 8.
Helping to celebrate A3C’s 13th annual year, the legendary Nas will be headlining. Being one of the preeminent leaders of Hip Hop, us ATLiens are very #blessed to see such a legend perform. Ghostface Killah of the infamous Wu-Tang in addition to smash-hit producer Just Blaze will be co-headlining as well.
“In January we polled hundreds of past A3C attendees and asked them who they wanted to see perform at A3C Festival this year. Nas was the decisive favorite," says A3C Partner and Director Mike Walbert in a statement sent to Billboard. "We produce A3C for the community so it’s exciting to be able to give our family what they want. Nas is one of best MCs of all time, and his impact on hip-hop is unmeasurable. Nas done so much more than release music. He has become a notable figure in academia, technology, and the investment community. The hip-hop world patiently awaits an album this year, and I for one couldn’t be more excited.”
"I’m beyond excited for A3C Festival & Conference 2017. I’m always eager to work alongside an amazing team in order to book incredible talent and tell different stories every year," adds A3C Festival Program Director Yusef Muhammad. "This year we’ve got the legendary emcee, Nas, and Ghostface Killah, and yet we can still provide a platform for up-and-coming talent like SABA, Joyner Lucas, Jay IDK and Kirk Knight. You can always count on A3C to experience the overall versatility of what the genre and culture has become."
