TuneCore is excited once again be heading to Atlanta for one of the biggest and best festivals celebrating hip hop each year, A3C 2017! Taking place from Wednesday, October 4th through Friday, October 6th, A3C (All 3 Coasts) is part conference, part festival, and garners attendees from all corners of the world. From labels and other industry folks to artists, producers, and of course fans, A3C has become a staple in the world of independent hip hop, acting as a meetup for all those interested in networking, learning, and further pursuing a music career.
We’re thrilled to be holding down The TuneCore Suite at this year’s fest on the Main Floor of the Loudermilk Conference Center, where we’re inviting all TuneCore Artists attending to come by and meet TuneCore staff, participate in our panels (more on those below), and leave with a sweet TuneCore swag bag.
There’ll be DJs spinning and TuneCore staff hanging out, and whether you’re a TuneCore Artist or not, stop by The TuneCore Suite and check us out – we’ll even be offering some cool discounts on distribution services.
Perhaps the coolest opportunity artists can take advantage of when they swing through The TuneCore Suite is a series of “Music Made Me Industry Talks” that we’ll be hosting.
Each ‘talk’ will focus on different areas of strategy around building your career as an independent artist. They’ll be hosted by key players within the music industry – from Atlanta and beyond – and will be fully immersive, breaking down the various ways artists can be getting ahead and succeeding in 2017.
Take a look at the lineup of Music Made Me Industry talks happening each day of the event below. Be sure to stop by, shake some hands, and of course, take notes!
