A3C_Dates-01

The 9th Annual A3C Festival Expands to Five Days & Announces First Batch of Performers

With hundreds of performers still to be announced, the first batch of A3C artists includes Ghostface Killah, Too Short, 9th Wonder, R.A. the Rugged Man, Pharoahe Monch, Jean Grae, Rich Medina and Jarren Benton. 

Also known as “All Three Coasts,” the festival had its biggest year ever in 2012, with over 20,000 hip-hop fans attending hundreds of performances, panels, films and tutorials — and this year will be even larger.
 
2013’s A3C Festival, running from October 2 – 6, expands to five days and three locations across Atlanta. Free shuttles will be on hand to transport attendees between venues at Little 5 Points, Old 4th Ward and East Atlanta Village.
 
In the spirit of everything that makes A3C one of the country’s largest hip-hop festivals, the expanded dates and locations will provide for a broader and more in-depth film festival (in its second year), pro-audio experience, style village, along with more live music events than ever before.  This year’s “A3C Education Experience” will take place at Melia Hotel and include dozens of panels, workshops and speakers.

Interesting post from FunkProbosci about how a guy named Armen Boladian and his publishing company Bridgeport Music registered the copyright for a bunch of classic Funkadelic records and then sued people for sampling the tracks (he wasn’t working on behalf of the members of Funkadelic).    If you’re a musician, you might want to check this out.  It’s pretty crazy.  Thanks to homie Joe Schloss for passing us the link.
