2 Chains buys into A3C and The Gathering Spot
2 Chainz Joins the Ownership Group which includes The Gathering Spot and Paul Judge Media Group
ATLANTA - September 27, 2019 - A3C has announced that GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist Tauheed “2 Chainz” Epps has purchased a stake in the world-famous A3C Festival & Conference and is now part of the ownership group. The festival, which is celebrating its 15th year, has brought thousands from around the world to Atlanta each year to discover, network and learn from the innovators, entrepreneurs and artists that drive the culture forward. Earlier this year, Paul Judge Media Group and The Gathering Spot acquired A3C and since have created a brand new experience for the festival and conference goers. Dr. Paul Judge has collaborated with 2 Chainz in the past, bridging the gap between tech and culture, through events with one of Paul’s tech startups.
“A3C has always been one of the most important places for artists to show off their creative ideas and to learn business moves,” states 2 Chainz. “I’ve moved from artist to being inside the owner’s box. I’m excited to be co-owner and to help shape A3C over the next decade to be the biggest festival on the planet--the festival for the future”.
2 Chainz will be a creative curator and business advisor involved with curating panels and artist lineups along with developing the overall experience of A3C. This year he will be the closing keynote on Saturday October 12 in a fireside chat with the legendary Dapper Dan.
