AFROTECH Conference 2023 has come to a close, but if you listen carefully, you can still hear the people roaring with excitement. One particular reason for the buzz was the vibes and curated experience of the AFROTECH Music Stage.
AFROTECH is a good time every year. Attendees come to learn, grow as professionals, and expand their network. However, primarily due to its timing in the calendar, AFROTECH serves as a proverbial celebration of achievements.
Ticket holders have made it to November, and while there is a little time to go before the new year, the conference serves as an excellent opportunity to reflect and marvel at all the strides you’ve accomplished this year. This is where the music stage enters the chat.
AFROTECH Music gives attendees a soundtrack to those celebratory moments. Ticket holders had top-tier vibes, with opening music coming from some of the industry’s most renowned DJs.
Beats by Riders Against The Storm; DJ Hunnybee; Soulection’s Joe Kay, Andre Power, and Jadaboo; and DJ Spinderella set the tone. From line dances that brought people together to cultural anthems that always get the crowd going, the mood was continual Black Joy. And you know there is no party or celebration without the swag surf. It’s a Black tradition at this point.
Once the vibes were set, the music stage was graced with the “Icy Grl” herself. Saweetie gave the people all her hits from “My Type” to “Best Friend.” Don’t sleep, she came with the choreography too. Saweetie offered up a full-stage experience.
With some transitional music in between, the crowd was ready for music’s “Biggest Boss,” and the group went up. Rick Ross’ catalog is extensive, and there was no shortage of hype moments while the “Aston Martin” rapper was on the stage.
But music lovers had very little time to rest. Once Rick Ross wrapped up in the Culture Park, ticket holders headed to ACL Live at Moody Theater for an after-hours music experience with Jadakiss. This performance was a celebration of the 50 years of Hip-Hop, and Jadakiss did not disappoint.
If you were not there, just think about his “Verzuz” battle, and you’ll have a great picture of how it all went down.
AFROTECH Conference was excellent, and the musical experiences took it to another level. If you missed out, you definitely missed a dope time. But FOMO does not have to last forever.
