These days there's no shortage of summer festivals. Juggernauts like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Rock the Bells draw people from all over the country, but for hip hop fans, finding one in the fall that's both good and affordable is a rare feat.
Now in it's 9th year, Atlanta's A3C festival is back and bigger than ever, spanning five days, up from three in previous years. The extended time now gives rap heads a reason to overindulge in what they love.
Ghostface Killah and Schoolboy Q will be among the headliners for the nearly week-long festival, which will feature more than 300 artists and DJs across dozens of centrally located venues in the Old 4th Ward, Little 5 Points and East Atlanta Village.
A3C runs from October 2-6. Tickets may be purchased online by going to www.a3cfestival.com/attend
