Revolt World 2023: A Fusion of Performances, Panel Discourse, and Networking Opportunities

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, chairman of Revolt, hosted the first Revolt World event in Atlanta. Announced by Combs in August, the ‘reimagined Revolt Summit’ was launched to celebrate the global impact of hip-hop and elevate the connections of culture and community.

The following comes from Open On Sunday, a company DMN is proud to be partnering with.

From September 22-24th, Revolt World 2023 culminated in an immersive experience of urban music and hip-hop culture representation. Despite a few organizational snafus, the event at Pangaea Studios, Atlanta, drew over 30,000 attendees, including musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, and athletes.

The reimagined Revolt conference featured some of hip-hop’s most influential names for discussions, performances, networking, and potential partnerships.

Revolt is a leading black-owned and operated multimedia platform, and Revolt World 2023’s venue hosted multiple platforms for performers, panels, and entertainment.

The soundstage showcased headliners such as Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, MoneyBagg Yo and others, and DJs entertained event attendees throughout the three-day summit.

The venue also featured a dedicated podcast stage to facilitate in-depth discourse on music, entrepreneurship, sports, and culture. Speakers included N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN from Revolt TV’s weekly podcast Drink Champs, alongside G Herbo, Queen Naija, and others. Rapper Jeezy also took the stage to speak about his new book Adversity For Sale, in which he details his life.

Among the many unique immersive experiences designed to submerge event attendees in hip-hop culture, there was a definite standout: ‘The Love Lounge,’ a sensual, red-lit room entirely devoted to ‘Diddy’ Combs and the promotion of his new classic R&B album, The Love Album: Off The Grid.

Combs also made an appearance at Revolt World and was swamped by fans. Speaking at the event, Combs said he had big dreams for the ‘one-of-a-kind’ Revolt.

“Coming together is a sign that people want to unify under the name of love, under the name of hip hop turning 50, and where we’ve come from. This is a testament to where we’re going. We will be the number one platform for our people — unapologetically, in the world,” said Combs.

One attendee, Ray Mullen, told DMN that his favorite thing about the new album is that ‘it brings R&B,’ adding, “[Artists] got away from that, and I’m ready for it to come back.”

With upcoming artists, songwriters, and musicians, Revolt World 2023 culminated as the go-to destination for securing potentially lucrative networking opportunities.

Combs’ Revolt successfully pulled off an event that offered a rich culture-packed experience, and provided the platform that fostered connection building.

DMN spoke to second-year law student Jodi-Ann Salters, who said she was at Revolt World 2023 ‘to network, meet some people, and have a good time.’

Revolt World 2023 took place from Sept 22nd to the 24th.
