SXSW Music Weekly Round-Up: Pussy Riot Theatre, Duckwrth, Sammy Hagar, Mick Fleetwood & More

We have less than 30 days until SXSW 2017 begins…

This week we announced many great music-focused Conference programming additions. We are welcoming rocker Sammy Hagar, the evergreen Mick Fleetwood, groundbreaking Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, veteran dance-party starter and B-52’s member Cindy Wilson, and more. Today we announced Artist Management is a Service Industry, with speakers including management of A Tribe Called Quest (Sophia Chang), Metro Boomin (Rico Brooks), Anderson Paak (Adrian Miller) and producer Sonny Digital.

Let’s move onto the 2017 Showcasing Artist news. We published the 2017 showcase schedule online, and will continue to release more details as we get closer to the event. We recommend you take a long lunch at work and start making a schedule so you don’t miss any of your favorites. We also added 140 artists to the event this week. Some highlights include the versatile soul musician Bilal, funky indie hip-hopper Duckwrth, local Austin garage-rockers Us Weekly, and many more below. Pussy Riot Theatre will also hold the world premiere of their new spoken word project “Revolution,” led by Maria Alyokhina.

We know you love digging through long lists of hyperlinks, and we’ve worked on the perfect soundtrack for the experience. Our radio channel SXSWfm has a show featuring all newly announced artists, as well as plenty of other quality programming, and our weekly weekly Spotify playlist will shine a light on some emerging talents you may not be aware of yet.

If you’re liking what you’re hearing, now is the time to register today for your Music badge before the clock strikes midnight. While we won’t stop selling them just yet, but the price will increase one final time before SXSW if you don’t register today (Friday, February 10). The SXSW Music badge not only gives you access to Music Festival showcases and Conference sessions, but also several Interactive and Film events, Networking Meet Ups, parties, and more.
