Expedia just released their 2017 list of 20 Must-Experience Festivals in the US... and WE MADE IT!
The festivals on this list were selected based on the unique experience they have to offer distinguish each as a festival everyone in America should experience at least once in their life. Simply put these are the best festivals in the U.S... according to Expedia, and they should know, they travel A LOT!
Over the past 12 years we've worked hard to create a postive environment for the hip-hop community. The 13th year is going to very special. We have a lot in store for this year and can't wait to hang out with y'all from Oct 4-8th in Atlanta.
A3C is a place to celebrate hip-hop legends, discover the next generation, network with the industry, learn about the business and create new media.
Many of us seek community and connection, and there are few things that bring humanity together more than shared experience. Festivals, with their niche appeal and sense of organized togetherness, offer this in concentrated form. There is a fine line between communing with your fellow man and being squished between sweaty strangers at an over-capacity event. That’s why we’ve chosen these—in our opinion the best festivals in the U.S.—for the reason that they have so much to offer, from cool music to cutting-edge art, and even a little breathing room. Though rightfully popular and gaining more devotees each year, none of these events have jumped the shark by compromising quality for crowds. In no particular order, here’s our list of must-experience events this festival season and beyond.
About A3C - In Their Words
Atlanta has been sourcing amazing musicians for decades, so it isn’t any wonder that they know how to celebrate sound in big ways in this city. A3C quickly caught wind from its seed as a local showcase to become one of the most important hip-hop events to contend with. It’s a great place to catch favorite acts like De La Soul, Killer Mike, and Big Daddy Kane, but the true opportunities lie in discovering up-and-coming artists.
The festival is predated by a conference, where speakers empower and educate a new generation of culture.
