Becoming one of a staple for hip-hop lovers, the A3C Festival & Conference will be returning for its 14th year in Atlanta, with a diverse group of hip-hop acts gracing the stage.
The festival, which takes place from Oct. 6 to Oct. 7, will be headlined by Wu-Tang Clan, Lil Wayne, and The Diplomats. Alongside those hip-hop veterans, the festival will have appearances from Young M.A, PRhyme, J.I.D, Curren$y, Mannie Fresh, Childish Major and many more.
“We’re really excited about producing a dope hip-hop festival in downtown Atlanta. It’s important to have cultural events in the city,” Mike Walbert, A3C Director, told Complex. “There’s something special about hosting this festival in the capital of hip-hop culture with the state capital building and skyscrapers in the background.
With 2018 being the 25th anniversary of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Walbert explained that Wu-Tang’s A3C performance would be named the “Wu-Tang Experience.” While he didn’t specify any details, Walbert claims that it will be “unlike anything seen before.” He also describes 36 Chambers as one of his favorite albums and “earliest memories listening to hip-hop.”
