A3C, a landmark hip-hop festival and conference that takes place in Atlanta every year in October has announced their initial lineup for their 13th year. The lineup includes rap legends Nas and Ghostface Killah, superstar producer Just Blaze, and up-and-coming artists Saba, Jay IDK, Joyner Lucas, and Kirk Knight. The festival has been dropping hints about the headlining artist being regarded as one of the best lyricists of all-time. With Nas’ recent tour announcement with Lauryn Hill, many hip-hop heads guessed this could be a possibility.

This year, the festival portion of the event will be focusing their music programming to a two-day event at the Georgia Freight Depot instead of the previous location in years past in Old Fourth Ward.

Thousands of hip-hop enthusiasts, artists, and creatives from around the world will gather in Atlanta to enjoy hip-hop music and culture at the Georgia Freight Depot in October.

In the coming months, A3C will be announcing more artists, producers, entrepreneurs, creatives and industry experts that will be participating in hip-hop’s premiere event in Atlanta.

Tickets are now on sale for A3C Festival & Conference 2017.
