What began as an annual event, inspired by the REVOLT Music Conference, has transformed into a huge moment for Black people to come together through culture and community in the world of hip hop. Pack your bags and get ready for the first-ever REVOLT WORLD. The reimagined three-day extravaganza not only provides fans access to major artists, entertainment executives, and industry leaders; it is also a way to empower and celebrate the evolution of hip hop and what it has done for society. REVOLT WORLD will be held Sept. 22-24 in Atlanta, GA and will be one of the biggest and dopest experiences as attendees are submerged in Black culture.

As the world continues to celebrate 50 years of hip hop, REVOLT WORLD will be providing live performances, panel discussions, live tapings of REVOLT shows, a wellness center, and more. This will be a time full of entertainment and education with attendees gaining insight from a holistic point of view, too. REVOLT WORLD will also be a hub for emerging leaders to connect with the best of the best and build their networks in various industries. The REVOLT Summit was a great way for people to connect, engage, and honor cultural milestones over the past several years. Following that success, REVOLT WORLD will bring you a new and improved event with exciting activations that will leave you wanting more.

Below is everything you need to know about the upcoming festivities and why you don’t want to miss out! 


This event will be held at Pangaea Studios in Atlanta, GA. Providing an outdoor stage and five soundstages with approximately 47 acres of fenced property in Metro Atlanta, there will be plenty of room for attendees to see and enjoy everything that REVOLT WORLD has to offer. Pangaea Studios is known to be one of the few large-scale production facilities in a major city and has worked with companies such as HBO, Disney, Marvel Studios, and more. 

2. Bigger And Better: Who All Is Going To Be There??

While REVOLT Summit averaged 5,000 people per day, REVOLT WORLD will be attracting 10,000 each day. With additional time and activations, more people will be exposed to great resources and amazing moments while fully taking in the experience. You never know who you might meet while attending. It could be a newfound friend or your next business partner by your side making the best memories during the weekend. So, spread the word and bring whoever you like. We have the room!

3. The Performance Lineup Is Lit

The talent lineup at the inaugural REVOLT WORLD is massive and features Don Toliver, Moneybagg Yo, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Larry June, and Uncle Waffles, just to name a few. Not only will there be musical performances by some of the hottest artists in the game right now, but people will be able to attend panel discussions, see live tapings of their favorite REVOLT shows, masterclasses, and so much more.

Want to build your resume and learn how to better your interviewing skills? We have an executive chat for that, too. When it comes to business, it is best to have all the right resources that will support you and your goals. So, taking advantage of these conversations is a must for anyone’s career dreams.

10. The Gaming House: Single Or Multiplayer?

Fellow gamers, REVOLT WORLD wants you to feel welcomed, as gaming has been a part of the Black community for decades. Presented by Mountain Dew, the Gaming House will be a central hub for live tournaments and cosplay competitions. There will also be panels on how to make a profit in the industry. This is where gamers are able to show off their skills, network with other like-minded individuals and more. 

11. Wellness Zone: Breathe, Stretch, And Let It Go

Health and wellness has become a priority for many, especially in the Black community. Navigating life can be stressful and it is important to create safe spaces where people feel seen and heard. In partnership with the Black-owned app True Voice, REVOLT WORLD is curating a dedicated space for wellness-inclusive practices such as sound baths, guided meditation, an affirmation mirror, and more. You can even learn about bridging the gap between mental health and hip hop through a panel with Royce Da 5’9”, G Herbo, Styles P, Fivio Foreign, and Antonio Brown. Health is wealth.

12. The Culture Studio: Let’s Get Creative

For the influencers and content creators, we have a space designed just for you. The Culture Studio is the place to be to learn the best tips and practices for creating fresh content for social media platforms. Whatever your niche is, you can use it to tell your story. Engage with your followers in a new way through what the Culture Studio has to offer. This space will host masterclasses, production workshops, live podcast shows, and be the hub for REVOLT’s first-ever Podcast Pitch Competition.

 13. McDonald’s Shoot Your Shot

Shoot Your Shot is a new avenue to get a moment in the spotlight if you’re a dancer, musician, comedian, or creative in general.
