Like the past 11 A3C’s, there will be over 75 shows and multiple stages featuring thousands of nationally known and rising Hip-Hop artists. The conference portion of A3C is lining up hundreds of panelists who will take part in over 80 sessions, meet and greets and workshops.
A new speaking series will also debut this year featuring new influencers and a group of icons. Over the years, rappers as varied GZA, B.o.B, Big Boi, A$AP Ferg, Too $hort, De La Soul and hundreds of others have headlined stages and panels at A3C.
“The A3C Festival will continue to provide the best possible platform for artist discovery, while celebrating Hip-Hop’s trailblazers, influencers and milestones,” A3C Executive Director Mike Walbert told AllHipHop.com in a statement released today (March 21).
