- The Atlantic Festival’s Ideas Stage is the destination for back-to-back interviews with luminaries across business, politics, culture, and more. Ideas Stage programming will be held each evening of the festival.
- Festival Forums feature editorial interviews with thinkers and doers that will span the scope of the festival. We’ll take a deeper look into various subject matters—including health equity, small business, and education. These forums are also where we incorporate some of The Atlantic’s key series—Race & Justice, Women of Washington, Future of Work, etc.—into the festival. These are hour-long events and will feature sessions produced by our underwriters.
- Master classes feature prominent hosts teaching classes within their area of expertise.
