This year, for the SXSW (South By SouthWest) Music Festival, a handful of Memphis based artists will be performing live on stage, in Austin, TX.
SXSW Music is the largest music festival of its kind in the world, with more than 2,000 acts as of 2014. SXSW Music offers artist-provided music and video samples of featured artists at each festival via their official YouTube channel.
The music event has grown from 700 registrants in 1987 to over 28,000 registrants. SXSW Film and SXSW Interactive events have grown every year, most recently bringing over 51,000 registrants to Austin every March.
Bands must cover their own expenses for travel and lodging at the event. All performers are offered a cash payment ($100 for solo acts or $250 for bands) or a wristband package that allows access to all music events according to Wikipedia.
March 18th. 2016, TRDON & The Dope Academy will be taking over the stage with the “ARTxNDLZ 2.0” showcase. The showcase will be held at The Madison, 307 W 5th St. Austin, TX., from 12pm-6pm. All ages are welcomed.
The ARTxNDLZ2.0 showcase will be featuring some of the hottest, and most talented indie artists and dj’s to come out of the city of Memphis. To name a few artists and dj’s that will be apart of the showcase are: Money Bagg Yo, Tori Who Dat, Preauxx, Rozay P, Burial Boyz, MATT, Dj Q Watts, Dj El Plaga, DJ Reezy & More!
As usual, these artists put on a great show and always represent the city well. I’m elated to see their performances tomorrow night, as they kill the stage and put on for the city!
The city is standing behind these artists, and rooting for their accomplishments.
