SXSW Music Weekly Round-Up: The Lemon Twigs, Jamila Woods, Mannie Fresh Conversation, Austin Music Awards

With only a few weeks left, SXSW is coming up fast! We want you to get the most out of your SXSW experience, so let’s make sure you know who to look out for once March gets here.

This week we’re happy to announce the addition of two new sessions for you to enjoy at SXSW! For all aspiring DJs out there, stop by our How to Remain Relevant as a DJ panel and hear from renowned speakers Mannie Fresh and Tony Neal. They’ll tell you everything you need to know about keeping up in today’s world of mixing. We’re also introducing a panel of speakers, including Monterey International Pop Festival co-founder Lou Adler, to discuss the success of music festivals like Monterey Pop and Coachella.

On top of that, we’re hosting our fourth annual SXSW Hackathon! Apply to participate and join the excitement, while receiving help from our Creatives In Residence, such as digital artist Andrew Jones and VR director and writer Josema Roig.

Onto this week’s Showcasing Artist announcement! Highlights include the sick psychedelic sounds of Christian Bland & The Revelators, as well as New York’s favorite indie rock brothers, The Lemon Twigs. If rock isn’t your style, check out Khruangbin, FRENSHIP, Jamila Woods, and the full list of 150 new Showcasing Artists below.

Why read about the artists when you can listen to them? Be sure to find them on our Spotify playlist and our radio channel SXSWfm.

There are only a few weeks until the festival, so secure your place and register for a SXSW Music Badge. Not only will you gain access to legendary speakers and performers, but you’ll also have the networking experience of a lifetime!
