If you haven't heard, Atlanta is the Hollywood of the South. Atlanta has become a hub for all things entertainment, but more importantly, the music that derives from the city creates a musical fortress for the South. Festivals play a huge part in establishing a permanent foothold in the music industry. Atlanta has over 50 music festivals a year and being that everybody enjoys an excellent concert, it can be a great tactic for some artist to gain exposure.
A3C (All 3 Coasts) celebrated it's tenth year this past weekend. Hip-hop heads packed into Atlanta's distinct neighborhoods and notable music venues to witness live performances by featured and local artists including B.O.B., 2Chainz, Wocka Flocka Flame, Talib Kweli, Black Thought, Scarface, Young Dirty Bastard (the late Ol' Dirty Bastard's son), Twista, Jay Electronica and more. Not only were the stages swarming with talent, festival goers had access to network and absorb sound advice from some of the industry's most essential professionals.
