Atlanta is the place to be this week as today begins the annual A3C Hip Hop Festival. Every year the festival keeps growing, and as you can see from the flyer above, there are a lot of artists that will be down there.
So what are some shows to look out for?
Well, let's start with the headliners. No doubt you're gonna want to catch some of these long-time rap stalwarts starting with Prodigy & Alchemist tonight at Mass Appeal.
Tomorrow night's BET Music Matters show features a wide variety of a lineup with Meek Mill headlining, Lecrae, Rapsody, Problem, and Chi-Town's own Vic Mensa. Then you got Ghostface Killah, Pharoahe Monch, Jean Grae, Skyzoo, and more at Variety Playhouse. You really can't go wrong with either show.
Friday, Red Bull Sound Select begins with Bun B headlining. You can also catch Talib Kweli, and the first of two main Chicago showcases with Project CHI.
Saturday, the Chicago hip hop continues with a showcase we've been building with going down called "Chicago Hope". Lil Durk, King Louie, Lil Bibby, The Boy Illinois, Mikkey Halsted, and too much more to name are all going to be performing. You've seen all these artists here on Gowhere and now you'll get to see them live in a different city. I'm excited for the first-timers to see this showcase. ICYMI, we have an event spotlight on the showcase hereand an exclusive interview with the event's promoter and entrepreneur, Young Hustle.
Rounding out the weekend is the "Best Block Party Ever" and it may just live up to that billing with DJ sets from Questlove, DJ Premier, Young Guru, DJ Maseo, Diamond D, and DJ Scratch. Wow. Not a bad way to call it a weekend Sunday afternoon.
Those are just some of the picks for A3C this week. View all the shows and set times over at A3C's Schedule pagehere. And if you're in Atlanta look out for @StanPerry takin' some photo and video that we'll have up on the site next week!
