Billboard just announced its return to South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas for three nights of concerts and an interactive content house featuring intimate conversations with musicians and industry leaders. The events will kick off Thursday, March 16th and run through Saturday, March 18th.
Set to take place at Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park, Billboard Presents THE STAGE at SXSW will be headlined by rapper Lil Yachty on March 16th, Latin artists Feid and Eladio Carrion on March 17th, and Kx5–the collaborative project from Kaskade and deadmau5 on March 18th. The concert series will also feature opening performances by Lola Brooke and Armani White.
In addition to performances, several artists will also host conversations at The Billboard House, with official speakers to be announced in the coming weeks. Taking place Friday, March 17th, the interactive content house will also feature brand activations, photo opportunities, small bites and cocktails, and more. Entry is on a first-come first-serve basis, with a reserved amount of spaces available exclusively to SXSW Music and Platinum Badge holders and SXSW Music Festival wristband holders.
