SHAOLIN BACK AGAIN: The entire Wu-Tang Clan takes over A3C.

The A3C festival returns to the Georgia Freight Depot the weekend of Oct. 6-7. It’s the festival and conference’s 14th annual installment, and this year’s festival lineup ain’t nothin’ to eff with. Literally! This year, A3C brings the Wu-Tang Clan — the RZA, the GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna — for a weekend of Shaolin madness. BONG BONG!

This year, performances will be spread across three stages at the Georgia Freight Depot. The outdoor stage will host performances by a stellar cast that includes Lil Wayne, the Diplomats, Curren$y, PRhyme, Mannie Fresh, and Westside Gunn + Conway, as well as lauded locals J.I.D., Childish Major, and Deante Hitchcock… And, of course, the Wu-Tang swarm! This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers,, so keep your ears peeled for the classics, and poor a little out, raise your hands to the sky, and same the name of the god, Ol' Dirty Bastard, may he rest in peace.

The indoor stage will host a marathon of Atlanta’s most prominent up and coming hip-hop acts, and the DJ stage will be manned by the WERC Crew and Controllerise. Keep an eye out for more lineup announcements coming soon, along details regarding the A3C conference which returns to the Loudermilk Center Oct. 3-5.
