DIRECTV & Guitar Center at SXSWNext week DIRECTV and Guitar Center will bring their Award-winning series Guitar Center Sessions to SXSW.

Shooting from the rooftop of the Starr Building at 503 Colorado St, the show will present three consecutive SXSW Music Festival showcases featuring Soundgarden, Snoop Dogg, Damon Albarn, and Phantogram. Other acts include The Wild Feathers and The 1975.

This most excellent lineup gives fans the chance to see some of the festival's top talent in a unique setting, perched high above the city with Austin’s skyline as a backdrop.

All performances will be filmed in front of a live audience for the series’ upcoming eighth season debuting in May. Episodes will premiere exclusively on DIRECTV’s Audience Network (channel 239) and feature interviews with the artists by Nic Harcourt.

Standard SXSW Music Festival entry guidelines apply for most shows. Stay tuned for more info regarding access to the Soundgarden concert.
