Today, check out A3C Festival director Mike Walbert’s top five reasons you should head out to the 11th Annual A3C Festival next week (Oct 7-11)! [Be sure to read each reason to enter to win your own A3C Festival tickets!]

Reason 1: The Energy

One reason you should come is because of the energy. There is a vibe around the community that’s here. One of our taglines is that this is hip-hop’s family reunion. It really does feel like that. You’re amongst fans and artists, and there’s energy around. When you meet someone, you’ll find out you have something in common with them.

Reason 2: The Discovery

Reason 2: The Discovery

Every year, artists break here. People find new artists here. It’s awesome. I love hearing, “The first time I saw him was at A3C, now look at him! I saw Action Bronson on-stage with 300 people!” Come and see that artist for the first time.

Reason 3: The Connecting

Reason 3: The Connecting

The third reason is because of connecting. The connections. Come here to connect, meet people and if you’re in the business, in hip-hop and you take your job seriously, come to A3C and you’re going to have amazing opportunities to meet a manager, to meet a producer, a film producer, or graphic designer, booking agents, people in technology and film, art, fashion. You can connect with the community and find your support and network. For business, that’s the number one thing for me.

Reason 4: The Experience

Reason 4: The Experience

The fourth reason is because of the experience. Where else can you see Cam’ron, De La Soul, Wiz Khalfia and 2 Chainz over a three-day period? Where else can you go and have a conversation with Dame Dash and the next day you’re going to see Lil’ Boosie perform? It’s the overall experience of seeing and touching everything. There’s no other experience like this in the world. Connect with them, meet with them, ask questions. You’re going to see the leaders of our generation and the next leaders.

Reason 5: The Talk

Reason 5: The Talk

The last reason is because you’re going to hear about it. You don’t want to miss out. If you’re not here, you’re missing out. That’s the short and sweet reason. All of your friends are going to be here. You don’t want to be that one person who misses it.
