About Music Showcases

Courtney Barnett at SXSW 2015

The SXSW Music Festival is one of the largest, most influential, and most anticipated music events of the year! At SXSW 2015, more than 30,000 music industry professionals and musicians attended six nights of music performed by over 2,200 acts representing 62 foreign countries at over 100 venues in downtown Austin, Texas.

For 2016, SXSW plans on keeping with our tradition of bringing you the absolute best mix of brand new, up-and-coming, international and legendary musical performances, planted all over Austin in bars, clubs, parks, churches and elsewhere. As has been the case since we started in 1987, attending SXSW is a must for the music and creative industry professional.

Please check back later this summer and fall for more information about the 2016 SXSW Music Festival.
