I’ll never forget the day I got the call from my partner. It was early in the week, and I asked what we were going to do next. He mentioned possibly driving from Orlando to Atlanta for a hip-hop festival. I’d heard of music festivals before, but what he was suggesting was nearly a dream. Three days of all the dopeness of hip-hop? We were on the phone and hopped on line and did the research together.
It was early October, 2010. We decided days before the festival was to begin that we would make the drive. Plans were made, and hotel and tickets were purchased. We paid $25 for three day passes and there were over 200 acts scheduled to perform. Our plan was to network and spread the word about our artist, all while soaking in as much hip-hop as we could stand over the short time we were going to be there.
I decided to connect with other festival goers via Twitter to jumpstart the networking. I’m here to tell you I met most of these people and some of them have proved to be some of the most incredible folks I’ve met thus far in my lifetime. Real connections were made with real people, and the music was just incredible. As a fan, this is the ultimate experience to get up close and personal with some of your favorite artists as they roam through the venue without security and celebratory hoopla that generally surrounds them. As an aspiring *insert music professional title of your choice,* the same holds true. Get to Atlanta and jumpstart it all.
This year will be my third year attending and every year, I go on Twitter rants about why folks should be there. This year, I figured if I made a short list and shared it along with my personal story, I’d reach a few more people.
Here goes nothing:
– This year, the festival has expanded and will host six stages and will have over 300 artists performing throughout the city of Atlanta during the three days.
– 2 Wu-Tang members have been confirmed.
– As the festival is in Atlanta, the recent announcement of a Dungeon Family performance is pretty freaking epic.
– A extremely diverse pool of independent artists from all over the world is filling out the bill.
– All of this is happening, and you still won’t pay $100 at the door for the three day pass.
Aspiring artists, producers, journalists, publicists, promoters, etc. This part is for you:
– Come network with people who are or have been in your shoes.
– Potentially meet your future clients.
– Establish your identity in the industry.
– Gain new fans by sharing your story.
– See some of your inspirational mentors up close and personal.
9th Wonder was on hand for a question and answer session, debuted his documentary, then set the festival all the way off with his entire Jamla Records family and special guests tearing down the stage.
I hope I’ve inspired you to check the festival out. If you’re too far away to make it this year, though it is still more than a month away… plan for next year. If you’re attending, I’d love to meet you. Find me and tell me your story.

Check out my recap footage from 08/04/12 Bars And Beats. This time around we brought you our open mic where artists spit freestyles/writ-ens and a Beat Battle. 8 producers competed PeterJay, Jammah, Mindlabs, Ayentee, Produced by Pr1me, Frantz Mza, Mr. Nixon, and DJ TR3S. Congratulations to Ayentee! The winner will receive 4 hour recording session at SAE International SSL Room with mixing/mastering by Alphabeat Head Instructor from SAE. During the process I’ll be recording an interview with the winner. Stay connected and subscribe to NikkiSiixx.com for updates on upcoming Bars And Beats Events!
Check out the recap footage from ArtMoreraTV regarding the Dunkxchange at Passion’s Hardrock cafe. Art Morera, Mercy, Bishop, and others opened up for Maybach Music’s own Stalley. I’ve personally never been to a DXC before and it was amazing. The concept for everyone to bring in their Dunks and Jordan’s to either Trade, Sell, or Buy. The age range went from 8 year olds to their late 40’s. I’ve never seen so many shoes in my life! Pretty impressive. I also had the opportunity to meet Stalley.
Check out the footage that I caught at Club Eve on February 24, 2012. Action Bronson live. Opening acts Rob Regis, The Vagabonds, A1PHANUM3R1C5, Saheed, and last but not least Action Bronson. His set was amazing! Right at the end it was just raw crowd reaction. We were all bumpin’ and vibing to that track.
Hey guys! Hope you didn’t forget my party back February 25th for NETWERK. The event was created after my compilation mixtape NETWERK. 5 Lucky Artist were given a chance to rock the stage at Club Eve. The videos were brought to us by the artist. I wasn’t able to get any footage of my own. Can’t wait to the next NETWERK, VOL SEVEN.
–PeterJay & IMAGERI
Check out live performances from Bonus, American Poet, No Emotion, Dashius Clay, Blokaholics, and REVVV at Club EVE. At the end of the night I was able to get the glowstick necklace ReVVV through into the crowd. It was a great night!
Bars and Beats Presents Knowledge Medina x Numonics Mixtape Release Party NEVER ENOUGH. Open Mic and Producer Showcase Held Every First Saturday, Every Month. We had Chize, Silenthand Ent, Ayentee, Knowledge Medina, Numonics, Venessa Renee, and Shoutouts from Gill Graff and BONUS.
Check out my recap footage of the Joe Budden and Royce Da 5’9 at Club Eve on January 21, 2012. The show was brought to us by Major Event Marketing and Red Rabbit. I also captured Art Morera’s performance. It was a crazy, dope show! I was able to meet them both after 😀
This is my recap footage from FUSION LIVE in January. I was able to capture a few performances by Neopopsicle, iRep D-League, and Phresh James. Also caught gear from DaBottom Clothing. The event was brought to us by MoveToMarz.com, AshleyOutrageous.com, and MommyWarbucks.com.
