It has been a long time since I participated in a Hiphop festival or any kind music convention. I recently attended the A3C Hiphop Festival in Atlanta, GA i was glad I went. Goods fact the last Hiphop festival I attended was the initial A3C Hiphop Festival where I performed with my group Prophetix.
Having attended and performed in major festivals like the CMJ Musicfest in New york, I knew the type effect these festivals have on an artist's career. These events usually serve you for a few days and there are many performers and the possiblility to network. I have watched the A3C Hiphop Festival come to be a big annual event and after this there are music business panels, seminars and workshops. It began just being live performances.

Even if you are not performing, you'll probably still go to network and meet newer and more effective people. You will never know where you might run into they will again and what kind of effect you had on them the moment you met.

In 2010 I went as someone who enjoys good Hiphop music. I am not just referring to the commercial music that is certainly played on the radio constantly though the classic music that made Hiphop not just a great and powerful genre however a great and powerful culture too. Music

Here is some advice I will share that I learned over the years of attending Hiphop festivals:

1. Avoid being afraid to talk to the celebrities

If you're serious about being in e-commerce, you are going to have to approach people of celebrity status. I learned from the legendary emcee GURU from Gangstarr (R.I.P.) how you can conduct myself when approaching celebrities. These are people with eyes, ears, and skin like everyone else and I. Be respectful and tell them how you feel about their music but do not overdo it.

2. Avoid being afraid to network

Discover performing on the stage or somewhere having a restroom break, you need to be building new relationships and strengthening old ones. Since I am from Atlanta, I knew a lot of the people that were already element of the local Hiphop scene however, many of my best experiences originated in meeting new individuals from all over the country. With all the methods to stay in contact with people today for example Facebook and Twitter, you would be maximizing your admission fee by permitting some solid, relevant connections.

3. You shouldn't be afraid to have a excellent time

I can not remember one festival I attended where I didn't have a ball. The seminars and panels are excellent but the best part include the live performances. Good music is extremely good to hear live. When the rapper on stage says, "Throw ya hands from the air", do not be afraid to do it. As a matter of fact, have a cue from Nike and "Just Undertake it!" Why participate if you can not have fun?

Search for a music festival. Meet newer and more effective friends at the concerts or offer to treat someone for lunch. You'll never know what can happen if you do not get out and see for yourself.
