Sometimes you just have to pull a Bryson Tiller and say "Don't!" 

  1. Don’t arrive late. Be on time or before time.
  2. Don’t wait until the last minute to buy your ticket. While everyone else is attending shows and events, you’re going to be home watching Netflix.
  3. Don’t sell your ticket because of weather conditions. Remember weather is temporary… Atlanta weather is bipolar, it’ll be a quick 10-minute mini hurricane and then it’ll go back to normal.
  4. Don’t be mad that you didn’t get the VIP ticket.
  5. Don’t book your room last minute. You will be upset with yourself.
  6. Don’t wait until the last minute to book your flight. Prices can get pricey real quick. Once day a ticket will be $50 and the next day it will be $345.
  7. Don’t forget to UBER or LYFT. Traffic will be crazy and it will stop you from wasting time trying to find a park.
  8. Don’t be afraid of public transportation. The MARTA is very efficient and will beat ATL bumper-to-bumper traffic. But for those who insist on driving there are several free and paid parking lots near the A3C Conference Center and Festival Grounds. Free Parking a few blocks from A3C Festival Grounds at National Parks Department @ 423 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE.There is a paid parking at A3C Conference Center.  Parking for a day is $15.
  9. Don’t overlook people. You never know who you’ll be standing next to in a room.
  10. Don’t be “that person” blacked out on IG. SNAP. FB Live… all of that.
  11. Don’t wait until the last minute to get your media access.
  12. Don’t bring your little 16-year-old cousin to a 18+ or 21+ event. They will be hating from outside of the building. *A3C’s Conference Center, Pro-Audio Conference Center and Festival Grounds are All Ages.
  13. Don’t forget to get tickets with your friends for 20% off. (I’m trying to figure out why you have purchased your ticket yet *sideeye*)
  14. Don’t ask someone if you can perform the day of an event. You know better. Do better next time, Tyrone.
  15. Don’t go to just any ol’ restaurant. It may be a famous tourist spot but the sanitation rate could be in the 30’s. Yes… the 30’s.
  16. Don’t wait until the last minute to be a vendor. It doesn’t matter if you’re a food truck or a t-shirt slanger… if you’re late for registration, it’s over.
  17. Don’t come with lame people. If your friends are lame… leave them where they are at. You will meet dope people doing the festival and conference.
  18. Don’t miss the major acts. There will be a lot of surprises!
  19. Don’t miss the speakers! There will be some amazing people giving out gems.
  20. Don’t forget to have fun! This weekend will hit you fast and there will be a lot of events taking place. Don’t get overwhelmed, make a schedule and make sure you make the most out of this experience.
