Artist manager, event host and CEO of Schweinbeck, LLC., Diana Schweinbeck is an influential Hip-hop curator in Atlanta. She began her career in Hip-hop at age 20 when she began working at FYF Entertainment. After graduating from Georgia State University with a business degree, she founded her own management and artist branding company. She currently manages artists such as Sy Ri Tha Kid, Damar Jackson, Kato and more.
Schweinbeck shared her excitement about the debut of her monthly mixer event, The Fanbase at A3C this year. The concept behind The Fanbase is to give artists a platform to learn how to build their own fan base. The event begins with a panel that features Hip-hop influencers and then ends with an open mic night/showcase. The Fanbase will take place at A3C Thursday, October 6 at 10:00 p.m. at Opus Lounge. The strong lineup for the event includes Sy Ri Tha Kid, Starlito, Scotty ATL, Damar Jackson, Sossamann, Oj Da Juiceman, Project Pat and more.
Aside from her first event at A3C, Schweinbeck also will be participating in the panel, Women at Work: Entrepreneurship in Hip-hop at the Conference. This panel will take place Wednesday October 5 at 6:30 p.m. in room two of the Loudermilk Center. As one of the featured curators of A3C, Schweinbeck is someone to check out at this year’s festival.
What is the concept behind for your showcase for A3C?
The concept behind "The Fanbase" is an opportunity for artists to learn how to build a proper fanbase and also learn how important having a fanbase is. With the event starting with an informative panel with some amazing influencers in the industry then turning into an open mic where artists have the opportunity to build/show their fanbase.
