Last year we travelled to Atlanta for A3C 2011 and if you missed our fun there there’s always the backlogs to deal with. This year’s festival will submerge ATL with nothing but the best indie hip-hop from all across the country from October 11th through the 13th and the first batch of artists performing have been announced.

Indie king Tech N9ne, MMG madman Gunplay, Rittz, XXL freshman Hopsin, Oddisee, Skyzoo & Jackie Chain join a list of artists that include Chaundon, Emilio Rojas, Torae, STS, Jarren Benton, Diamond of Crime Mob, Dizzy Wright, Boldy James, Phene, Jon Hope and more.
