The 9th Annual All 3 Coast (A3C) Hip-Hop Festival went on in Atlanta, GA from October 2nd to October 6th and was superb to say the least. The festival was attended by 1000s of hip-hop artists, bloggers, photographers, videographers, clothing designers, film directors, executives and hip-hop fans. The events took place all over Atlanta, Ga from Little 5 Points to the Old 4th Ward. Multiple major label and independent artists were able to showcase their talents in the multiple venues set up through out the city. I was able to catch some of my favorites like Talib Kweli and Schoolboy Q as well up and comers like Que and Miloh Smith. Along all of the shows, there were also multiple panels and workshops for A3C participants to learn about everything from booking shows to getting paid for song placements in video games. There were numerous opportunities to network and connect with people that you may not have at your disposal on a daily basis. Overall the experience was tremendous both from and artist and blogger aspect and is a trip that I would recommend every artist take at least once.
