The REVOLT x AT&T Summit is returning to Atlanta, Georgia this year! On Sept. 24 and 25, attendees can expect to witness cultural leaders like Coi Leray, Gucci Mane and Tamika D. Mallory speak as panel guests. Other big names include Big Freedia, Pretty Vee, Fly Guy DC, DJ Drama and more.

There will also be exclusive viewings of some of REVOLT’s top shows including “Drink Champs,” “Big Facts,” “Assets Over Liabilities” and other programming. For two days, guests will be fully immersed in performances, panel conversations, interactive keynotes and town hall discussions led by prominent future-makers.

Chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs and REVOLT have partnered with AT&T to give attendees opportunities in real-time. This unparalleled experience continues to celebrate the global power and influence of hip hop. Diddy was thrilled for the Summit’s return. “The REVOLT Summit is coming back bigger and better than ever with the goal of inspiring the next generation of cultural leaders to understand that the time is now to achieve your dreams, change your life, and more importantly change the world,” he said.

Diddy added, “The future is happening in real-time, so we all have a responsibility to share the access, information, and opportunities that will move the culture forward and the REVOLT Summit is where it all starts.” This year’s format will be new and promises to deliver life-changing networking opportunities. Mentorship programs will also be available through AT&T Office Hours, Career Fair, Pitch Competition and the annual Be Heard competition.

SVP and chief diversity officer of AT&T Michelle Jordan shared her thoughts on this year’s event. “The future is now, and we believe there’s nothing more powerful than connection to drive the evolution,” she said. “AT&T’s presence at the Summit gives us a chance to learn from influential Black leaders, while offering experiences that can empower and drive real impact.”

REVOLT’s CEO Detavio Samuels couldn’t be happier to hold the colossal event in the A. “Atlanta represents the epicenter of Hip Hop culture today, so we’re excited to return with a new slate of programming, marquee talent, and live experiences that explore what’s next, while highlighting how both REVOLT and Hip Hop continue evolving,” he shared.
