The best of hip-hop is coming to Atlanta as the 3-day A3C Hip Hop Festival announces the first round of artists for the 2011 event at The Masquerade.

In addition, artists Dee-1, Big Rec, Danny!, and Goines have been selected to perform from ReverbNation and Sonicbids. A3C is still accepting artists’ submissions through either Sonicbids or ReverbNation. A3C staff listens to every submission and are looking for talented artists from across the country that can bring something unique to the festival. All artists that submit through Sonicbids receive a 3-day festival pass. Submission fees apply.
A3C is also proud to announce the return of the Perfect Attendance showcase in partnership with The Smoking Section. The 3-day Perfect Attendance stage features the best up and coming artists from all regions of the country. Each night is dedicated to artists from a different region including East, West and Midwest, performing alongside southern artists. In other words, the best of the best from the East, West and Midwest brought to you by the South. Artists can submit for the Perfect Attendance stage through ReverbNation starting next week.
Specific showcase, panel, artist and event updates will continue to be announced through the A3C website through the event’s start on October 6, 2011. For more information about becoming involved in the A3C as an artist, partner, volunteer or media representative, visit www.a3cfestival.com .
